Session 2 -  Evolution of Data Center Onsite Power Use - (2pm - Eastern)     Register Today!

One of the biggest challenges confronting data center operators today is how to build out to meet expected demand in an environment where power is constrained by regulatory and infrastructure limitations. In some regions, utilities may not have sufficient capacity to meet planned data center deployments. Local air quality boards are limiting the number of hours standby generators can run. Data center operators have ambitious ESG goals that are impacted by power usage. Join us for a conversation with Yue Tu, Innovation Program Manager at Microsoft and Rich Scroggins, Technical Advisor for Data Center Markets at Cummins to look at these challenges from the perspective of a hyperscaler and a power generation equipment supplier.
