Imagine the energy required to power thousands of servers, keep them cool, and support the entire ecosystem of a data center. Large data centers can consume between 20 to 50 megawatts of electricity annually – enough to power 37,000 homes! With their surging energy consumption, data center stakeholders are under pressure to adopt innovative solutions and technologies to slash their carbon footprint.

The challenge is clear: how can we navigate the path to greener data centers and significantly reduce their environmental impact?

A Sustainable Revolution: Embracing Advanced Technologies

In our On-Demand Webinar, Enhancing Energy Efficiency and Sustainability of Data Centers: Navigating the Path to Greener Data Centers Through Innovation and Simulation, Siemen’s Business Developer, Francesca Furno goes over the latest energy-efficient technologies that data centers should be embracing like liquid cooling, heat recovery systems, renewable power sources, and direct current (DC) electric power distribution are on the horizon.

These technologies promise not only to decrease operational costs but also to significantly reduce the ecological footprint of data centers. One such technology, system simulation, is poised to revolutionize data center design and operation.

System simulation offers invaluable insights by:

  • Identifying optimal configurations to meet specific requirements.
  • Defining interactions between subsystems.
  • Conducting energy analyses with dynamic scenarios.
  • Allowing for risk-free virtual commissioning long before any hardware is physically deployed.
