DigiPlex seminar Wednesday 4th July at 14:50 on the Dagens Nyheter stage
DigiPlex will present a seminar on how digitalisation requires climate smart data storage and debate whether it's time for new environmental legislation for the industry. Our seminar will take place on Wednesday 4th July on the Dagens Nyheter stage at 14:50 and a delegation will be at the event for the entire week. If you would like to arrange a meeting, please contact our Head of Communication, Elisabeth Lennhede.
"Digitisation requires climate smart data storage - time for new climate laws?"
Data centers today account for 2% of the world's annual CO2 emissions and 3% of energy consumption. Every minute in 2017 16 million SMS and 156 million mail were sent while 4.1 million videos were watched on YouTube. In the wake of digitization, an extreme increase in data traffic and new technologies such as IoT, Smart Cities, Big Data and Edge Computing, energy consumption and CO2 emissions increase exponentially! Perhaps you are already a big environment polluter without knowing about it?
