Green Data Centre Stakeholders Group Kick-off

Featured image

The CATALYST consortium is establishing the Green Data Centre – Stakeholders Group (GDC-SG) to bring under one roof data centre owners and managers, Distribution System Operators and heat network operators, utilities, energy retailers and Energy Service
Companies, Smart Cities and regulatory representatives.

The mission is to contribute to the vision of Green Data Centres as engaged players in the energy transition towards decarbonization of the society. More specifically the aim is to discuss, debate and resolve technological, business and regulatory challenges arising from
the integration of data centres as key actors in the energy domain and smart infrastructures of the future.

More information on the manifesto: http://project-catalyst.eu/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/GDC-SG_Brochure_Web.pdf

Become the catalyst to energy transition!
Support Green Data Centres in Europe!
Join the Green Data Centre Stakeholders Group!

The energy consumption of data centres in the EU is predicted to reach 104 TWh in 2020. With the continuous infusion of IT services in our daily lives and the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), distributed data centres and the cloudification of the legacy computer systems this number should come as no surprise. And energy is indeed a precious commodity. As such, to ensure sustained availability, reliability and security of Europe’s critical infrastructures, data centres should reinforce their investments towards energy efficient business innovation and successfully lead the on-going energy transition. Taking up such a pivotal role will bring opportunities for energy efficient data centres to not only reduce their operating costs and improve their performance and efficient use of resources, but also create new revenue streams through waste energy reuse and energy flexibility services offerings.

Europe’s Urban Energy & Mobility Transition - EUSEW

Featured image

Four European projects - SEEV4-City, CleanMobilEnergy, SIMPLA and EV ENERGY are organising an event on Europe's Urban Energy and Mobility Transition.

This event presents activities developed by and with European cities and regions that are frontrunners applying innovative renewable energy solutions combined with EV charging infrastructure.

The four European projects are working on these topics from different angles, in different stages and provide ingredients to get these sustainable solutions replicated in large scale. The target is city level and beyond. These project initiatives jointly aim to boost progress.

Our speakers are:
- Mark van Stiphout – EC DG Energy
- Ger Baron - City of Amsterdam's CTO
- Shelley Forrester - European Investment Bank
- Henk van Raan – Johan Cruijff Amsterdam ArenA
- Adrian Vinsome - CENEX UK
- Hugo Niesing - Resourcefully
- Luca Mercatelli, Area Science Park
- Julie Chenadec - Green IT Amsterdam

Nationale Dag voor Duurzaamheid in het Hoger Onderwijs (NDDHO)

Featured image

Al 5 jaar staat de Nationale Dag voor Duurzaamheid in het Hoger Onderwijs (NDDHO) in het teken van duurzaamheid en verbinding. NDDHO18 verbindt onderwijs, onderzoek, overheid, bedrijfsleven én verbindt jong en oud.
Het thema van NDDHO18 is 'Duurzaam. Verbindend. Circulair'.

NDDHO is interessant voor duurzaamheidscoördinatoren en ICT’ers, maar ook voor iedereen die geïnteresseerd is in duurzaamheid in het algemeen en het inzetten van ICT om verduurzaming binnen onderwijs, onderzoek en bedrijfsvoering te bewerkstelligen. In het bijzonder:
- opleidingsmanagers
- docenten en onderzoekers van ICT-opleidingen
- studenten
- managers facilitair en inkoop
- onderzoekers en betrokkenen bij topsectoren

Circulair is het hoofdthema van NDDHO18. Waarom? Het huidige lineaire productiesysteem zal moeten veranderen in een herstellend en vernieuwend systeem, waarin producten en materialen waardevol blijven voor hergebruik. Wat betekent circulariteit voor:
- ontwerp, productie, gebruik en afvoer?
- ICT-apparatuur met kostbare grondstoffen?
- onderwijsgebouwen: nieuwbouw en renovatie?
- smart cities en energie?
- onderwijs en onderzoek, overheid en bedrijfsleven?
- (keten)samenwerking?
- waardebehoud of zelfs waardevermeerdering?
- toekomstige generatie(s) – en dus onze studenten?
