Case Study Interview: Renewable Energy, the RE100 - challenges and successes for data centers

The global explosion in Internet and cloud based services comes with a big climate price – the data centers that run these services are growing exponentially and now are estimated to contribute 7% of global carbon emissions. Leading companies are trying to change the story – what if instead of more climate pollution from dirty energy sources, data center users – all the corporations that use cloud and 3rd party data centers could be part of the clean energy revolution? Can they use their purchasing clout to help make a greener, more equitable and more cost effective grid for everyone? Cutting edge collaboration groups such as the RE100, Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) and the Future of Internet Power working group are bringing together Corporations, NGOs, regulators and utilities to making a difference. In a Q & A interview along with audience participation we’ll explore: Is it helping? What have they learned? How can your company be part of it?

Case Study Interview: Renewable Energy, the RE100 - challenges and successes for data centers

The global explosion in Internet and cloud based services comes with a big climate price – the data centers that run these services are growing exponentially and now are estimated to contribute 7% of global carbon emissions. Leading companies are trying to change the story – what if instead of more climate pollution from dirty energy sources, data center users – all the corporations that use cloud and 3rd party data centers could be part of the clean energy revolution? Can they use their purchasing clout to help make a greener, more equitable and more cost effective grid for everyone? Cutting edge collaboration groups such as the RE100, Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) and the Future of Internet Power working group are bringing together Corporations, NGOs, regulators and utilities to making a difference. In a Q & A interview along with audience participation we’ll explore: Is it helping? What have they learned? How can your company be part of it?
