DataCenterDynamics will hold its first conference in Washington, D.C. next Friday, May 18, with a full schedule of presentations on data center facilities and engineering. The event will include sessions on energy efficiency initiatives from the U.S. Department of Energy and the EPA Energy Star program, and numerous presentations on managing the rising power usage and cooling requirements for data centers.
There are also several sessions on practical approaches to environmentally-aware green data centers, including facilities that qualify for the The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, the national benchmark for the design and construction of green buildings.
In 2006 DataCenterDynamics held 13 conferences worldwide, with 5,194 data center professionals attending. Its New York event in March featured a strong showing of attendees from the financial community. The 2007 schedule includes events in San Francisco (July 13), Chicago (Sept. 12) and Dallas (Dec. 6).
