The IGBC invites you to join us for our monthly green building network meeting.
February Meeting – Energy Efficiency in Data Centres
At the moment, about 7% of the world’s electricity consumption is taken by our digital ecosystem but this is forecast to rise to 12% by 2020 and is expected to grow annually at about 7% through to 2030. Data centers continue to represent one of the emerging sectors that touch our lives minute to minute but are virtually invisible to the end user and recipients of their services. Join us for this discussion on how data centres can be more energy efficient. This meeting will be chaired by David McAuley – Author of the recent report: Ireland’s Data Hosting Industry 2017.
