London November 10th: Presentations from the BBC on how content demand is driving its data center investment strategy and how carbon commitments will impact the future of the data center sector dominated the first sessions of the UK’s largest conference for the sector.

The two day event features a range of panel sessions, presentations and interactive round tables which provide practical advice on how energy can be saved in UK data centres.

One of the first presentations revealed the figures based on studies of data center operations from around the globe which showed that UK operators could easily do away with water chillers for data centre cooling and simply rely on air cooling with no negative impact on operations but with significant positive impact on energy costs.

Building an operational strategy based around energy saving and cutting carbon to deal with carbon reduction commitments will dominate design and operation of mission critical facilities in the future.

In a new development for 2009 the conference includes interactive roundtable discussion groups covering a roadmap for Carbon Reduction Commitment compliance, the Green Grid’s newly released European free-cooling maps and a frank appraisal of energy efficiency metrics and their use. For vendors a special session on how to ensure data centre technology and equipment complies with the Enhanced Technology List (ETL) scheme will be led by Paul Huggins, ECA Product Manager at The Carbon Trust.

DatacenterDynamics London is the UK’s largest conference and exhibition dedicated to the design, build and operation of mission critical facilities. Now in its 8th year the event attracts over 1,200 end user delegates from all quarters of UK industry and the public sector.
