Resource alert: The Silicon Valley Leadership Group (SVLG) has made many of the presentations from its June 26 Data Center Energy Summit available online, and additional presentations are scheduled to be added today. The files are available on a microsite put together by Accenture, which prepared the Data Center Energy Forecast that evaluates the EPA’s data center energy growth scenarios using the real results of energy savings as measured from the SVLG case studies.

There is also a page for the case studies, including presentations by Cassatt, Synopsys, Sun Microsystems, Symantec, Lawrence Berkeley Labs and the USPS. Additional presentations from Oracle, Yahoo, Digital Realty Trust and NetApp will also bea dded to the microsite.

The case studies present real-world results of implementations of hot- and cold-air containment systems, advanced power management, virtualization, free cooling and the use of wireless sensors.
