Building a Renewable Cloud

Presented by

Andrew Hatton, Head of IT, Greenpeace UK

About this talk

Will 21st century technology continue to run on 19th century power sources? Or will your company help to drive the clean energy revolution? With the amount of data across the world set to increase 50 times over by 2020, storage, transference and the cloud are becoming more and more ubiquitous and necessary, using yet more energy and power to function and still mostly provided by fossil fuels. So how do you get your infrastructure to be not only more efficient, but cleaner and more renewable? And how do you choose the services that are not only best for your organisation, but for your planet as well? Join Andrew Hatton, Head of IT at Greanpeace UK, as he looks at the current state of the IT and cloud industry, discusses the consumption in fuel and emissions across the world, highlights how major corporations are pushing for a better cloud and suggests best practices for promoting and investing in renewable energy to make your company more efficient, cleaner and shows how you can help to move us all away from the dirty cloud.
