Data & Interoperability

The world runs on data, therefore the data centre of the future needs to be decarbonised. In our increasingly digital world, these facilities play a much more important role than they used to, and this is predicted to keep on growing.

  • The importance of decarbonising data centre infrastructure and increasing efficiency
  • Data centres’ positioning at the intersection of energy efficiency, renewable energy and a data economy enabled by digitalisation
  • Partnering with ‘green’ utilities in order to ensure the power supply is clean from the get-go
  • The importance of regulating data centres’ energy usage

Network Evolution & Smart Grid Transformation
Panel Discussion

Digitalisation and futureproofing are key for networks across the world, but the UK DNOs are steaming ahead with future planning and setting rules and standards for the next 5 years to ensure that targets are met. This session will examine whether the current strategies are fit for purpose, and where they need to get to if not.

  • What does ‘digital’ mean to the networks, and how are they ensuring that their intentions from the RIIO2 strategies translate into real-life benefits?
  • How do networks plan on making digital inclusion work for everyone?
  • What happens to the data they capture through the rollout of sensors, IoT platforms and how will it be used efficiently and ethically?
