A series of Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Summits about building and operating 
efficient & sustainable Network, Energy & Digital Infrastructures.
 
 

  Our Mission

 

Over the past 24 years we have witnessed digital infrastructure grow into a global phenomenon that underpins every sector in today's society. The owners and operators of digital infrastructure are responsible for the lifeblood of modern society.

 

Technical advances in connectivity and server infrastructure are driving society's ability to deal with social, political, economic and environmental issues head-on.

 

We, as an industry, have done much to become more efficient but we are running out of time and there is much more work that needs to be done.

 

Through a series of Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Summits, our aim is to drive wider awareness and adoption of smarter, more efficient solutions and stimulate debate on how we build more sustainable network, energy and digital infrastructures to reduce our industry's carbon footprint and the impact it has on our environment.

 

Locations

The Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Summits visit the following locations in 2019/2020 with further events in Paris and the Nordics to be announced soon

Montreal: November 12th 2019

Are you ready for the sustainability challenge ahead?

 

Sustainability has never been higher on boardroom agendas. Operators of digital infrastructure (energy, network, datacenter,

edge) are being placed under growing pressure to source more sustainable energy sources and driver higher operational efficiency.

Are you planning for any sustainability challenges that lie ahead

and any impact that changes in climate may present? What can you do to begin reducing your carbon footprint, drive more efficiency and reduce energy consumption whilst maintaining operational performance? Join us in Montreal to find out more

Chicago: May 20th, 2020

Chicago's efficiency and sustainability challenge!

With the City of Chicago's ambition to become carbon neutral by 2035 and use 100% renewable energy by 2050 - when and how will the local digital infrastructure industry engage, how will it affect the design, planning, construction and operation of edge, datacenter, network and energy infrastructures?

 

Digital Infra Chicago will begin the debate bringing together industry professionals from operators, commercial, technology and civil stakeholders who have a direct responsibility for the planning, design, build and operation of all forms of Digital Infrastructure. Join us in Chicago and be part of the conversation.

 

Uk & Ireland 's ambition to use 100% Renewable Energy by 2050!

With the UK and Ireland committing to 100% renewable energy use by 2050, when and how will the Digital Infrastructure industry engage and how will it affect the design, planning, construction and operation of Edge, Datacenter, Network and Energy infrastructures?

 

Digital Infra UK & Ireland will begin the debate bringing together industry professionals from operators, commercial, technology, energy suppliers and civil stakeholders who have a direct responsibility for the planning, design, build and operation of all forms of Digital Infrastructure across the UK, Ireland and Europe.

 

To achieve the ambition of using 100% renewable energy by 2050, the industry needs to re-think how we design, build and operate more efficient and sustainable digital infrastructures - the planning starts now. Join us in London to find out how we can do this and be part of the discussion.

London Sept 8th 2020

Northern Virginia: October 7th, 2020

 

Meeting "Datacenter Alleys" growing sustainability challenge

 

Northern Virginia continues to dominate as the largest data center market in the United States, and the world. According to the latest research from CBRE, the market became the first in the world to reach one gigawatt of wholesale capacity in Q1, 2019!

 

With recent well-documented issues concerning renewable energy, when and how will the local Digital Infrastructure industry engage? How will it affect the design, planning, construction and operation of Edge, Datacenter, Network and Energy infrastructures?

 

Digital Infra Virginia will begin the debate bringing together industry professionals from operators, commercial, technology, civil stakeholders and utility power providers who have a direct responsibility for the planning, design, build and operation of all forms of Digital Infrastructure. Join us in Ashburn and be part of

the conversation.

About the Summit Series...

Sustainability has never been higher on boardroom agendas for operators

of all forms of Digital Infrastructure.

 

With mounting pressure being placed on operators to drive higher levels of efficiency and adopt more

sustainable energy sources, the industry is being driven into a new paradigm. This combined with the

explosive growth in data generated by AI, IoT, Autonomous vehicles, industry 4.0, 5G and beyond bring

with it new challenges on how we design, build and operate digital infrastructure.


With edge expected to be “4 times bigger than cloud” by 2030 and many cities now committing to 100%

renewable energy use targets - the industry needs to re-think traditional methodologies and build the edge

in a highly efficient and sustainable way, minimising its carbon footprint and reducing the impact this vast

growth in capacity could have on the environment.


Advancements in technology and engineering are delivering the tools required to meet the sustainability

challenges the industry is facing head-on. Through a series of summits, the Sustainable Digital Infrastructure

series will bring together industry-leading experts, consultants, solutions providers, energy and sustainability experts, utilities, design & construction specialists with enterprise and commercial operators of digital infrastructure to discuss how we build a sustainable edge and the other infrastructure necessary to meet demand, increase operational efficiency and ensure operators sustainability goals are aligned with those of end users.


Covering infrastructure upgrades, key advancements in technology and engineering solutions, operational performance, power/cooling, energy, efficiency, water, microgrids, onsite power generation, wind/solar/hydro,

fuel cells and AI - the series provides a focused networking opportunity for all operators of digital infrastructure

to meet with experts who have the technology and know-how to meet their efficiency and sustainability needs.


Typical job titles of those attending the Summits are CEO, CFO, COO, and Heads/Directors of:

  • Site selection

  • Energy management

  • Sustainability/Corporate Social Responsibility

  • Engineering/Power & Cooling

  • Water use efficiency

  • Renewable energy (DERs)

  • Microgrids/energy storage

  • Operational performance & efficiency

  • Edge & data center

  • Network & Interconnects

  • Digital infrastructure Investment

  • Design & Construction

  • Artificial intelligence/Blockchain

Does your organisation offer network, energy, renewables, engineering, power/cooling, efficiency/sustainability

or other services/solutions to the digital infrastructure industry that can positively impact efficiency and sustainability? If you wish to meet those responsible for operating digital infrastructures then this series is

where you need to be and we want to hear from you, so please drop us a line and one of our Team will be delighted to assist.

 

Transformational change will not happen overnight, together the industry has an opportunity to positively

impact how we move forward and build a more sustainable/efficient future for digital infrastructure. 

 

This is our problem to solve, it cannot be left for the next person to fix, the first step is engaging in high-level discussion and begin planning for the challenges that lie ahead.

 

Our Commitment

Digital Infrastructure Partners are committed to connecting high-level influencers and decision makers who design, build, own and operate all forms of digital infrastructure with service and solution providers who have the technology and know how to reduce our industry's carbon footprint.
