  • Right now you have a good chance to achieve significant savings due to the current low price environment in the energy markets. But, there is a danger for energy buyers even when the price seems low. In these conditions, offers of savings are flying around, people are locking prices and energy suppliers are putting lower price offers in customers' hands. It's very easy to be content delivering any savings story to your leadership, but many buyers are still leaving money on the table.

    Join our energy experts for a deep dive into buying strategies that every energy buyer should employ and hear tips for navigating the markets in a low energy market. A live Q&A session will follow the discussion.

    Your presenters each have 15+ years of energy buying experience and are excited to share with you the signs to look for as you negotiate with energy suppliers.

    We'll go over some of the aspects that may be forgotten in the RFP writing process as well as requirements for a meaningful proof of concept, and other important things to consider when evaluating a DCIM software tool.
  • Competition between coal and natural gas for power generation has been observed to occur in North America and Europe in recent years, where the costs of the two fuels have played a key role in determining the relative competitiveness. It is perceived that such a competition could also happen in Asian countries. More importantly, as these countries are expanding their generation capacity to meet growing electricity demand, a key question is raised of whether coal or gas power plants should be built with priority. This webinar is based on a recent report published by IEA CCC, where the authors investigate nine Asian countries to seek to understand the mechanisms that drive the competition between coal and gas for power generation.
  • The 50% decline in oil prices since August 2014 has shaken up the energy sector, with oil companies slashing investment in new exploration projects. However, the decline in price has raised wider questions about investment across the power sector, including gas and renewable energy.

  • Sustainable Data Centres? A recipe for ICT, power and cooling solutions Apr 28 2015 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Prof. Ian Bitterlin, CTO, Emerson
    True sustainability is achieved in three discrete steps - Firstly Reduction of Consumption, secondly Minimisation of Losses and, finally, Power from Renewable Sources. All of these are possible in modern data centre design but come with some increased risks. These risks may be more perceived than real but we have to accept that the primary purpose of a data centre is not to save the user energy but to provide reliable digital services that meet their business case. The users risk profile comes at the top of the design wish list.

    Join Prof. Ian Bitterlin for this presentation as he shows how a sustainable design can be forged for a user with a low appetite for risk and a high appetite for risk with the rewards that accompany it.
