The Silicon Valley Leadership Group is sponsoring Data Center Energy Summit on Thursday, June 26, hosted by Sun Microsystems in Santa Clara, Calif. The event will feature a full day of real world case studies covering sustainable data center design, energy efficient engineering, and operational best practices of green computing. Each case study will document the “before and after” measurements of energy conservation and GHG emissions reduction achieved from the implementation. The event is co-Sponsored by the California Energy Commission and The U.S. Department of Energy.
