Wandrille will also be speaking at Data Centre World 2023 where he will unravel the benefits of Microgrids and propose a new energy approach for Data Centres.


The speaking details as follow:

Date: 12 October 2023, Thursday

Time: 1:50pm - 2:15pm

Venue: Sand Expo and Convention Centre,  Efficiency and Sustainability Theatre

Topic: Microgrid - what you need to know

Synposis: The simultaneous increase in data processing, transmission and storage, as well as climate change targets imposed at global, national and corporate levels, are driving the industry to think about new ways of supplying electricity and water to data centers. ENGIE and RED Engineering Design propose a new energy approach, via microgrids combining on-site power and cooling production, renewable energy supply contracts via the electricity grid, storage solutions, export of waste heat and provision of services to the electricity grid.
