7X24 Exchange Spring Conference

June 02, 2014

Boca Raton, FL

Session: Energy Regulatory Policies: Research and Implications for Data Centers in North America

Speaker: John Tuccillo, Schneider Electric
Rona Newmark, EMC

The growth of data centers and their energy consumption has prompted the development and implementation of government policies that are designed to improve data center energy efficiency. At the same time, governments are working to address broader energy issues, such as climate change, by establishing policies to discourage the use of carbon-based fossil fuels and encourage the use of renewable energy sources. In this report, The Green Grid included policies that are in effect or being proposed in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The report highlights those that The Green Grid believes will be most useful or instructive to the audience. The report is intended to serve as a guide to data center developers and operators as to policies that could impact facility investment and operations. It also provides policy makers with examples of policy instruments that may form a favorable environment for data center siting.

7x24 Exchange is the leading knowledge exchange for those who design, build, use and maintain mission-critical enterprise information infrastructures, aiming to improve end-to-end reliability by promoting dialogue among these groups. 7x24 Exchange Conferences include a broad variety of topics that impact End-to-End reliability in formal and informal settings.
