Meeting held to discuss data centre cooling and impact reduction

University of Leeds to host a joint meeting to discuss the ventilation and air conditioning of data centres

The Institute of Refrigeration (IoR), the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) are to hold a joint meeting in October to discuss the environmental impact of data centre cooling and developments that can be made.

The meeting will be held at the University of Leeds on the evening of October 26 and can be attended by anyone in the sector who would like to hear the three industry experts discus the issue of data centre cooling.

The first expert to talk in the seminar will be Dr Jon Summers of the University of Leeds Institute of Thermofluids. He will lead the meeting with an in-depth discussion of thermal management in data centres, including the measurement and development of data centre performance from an energy point of view.

Dr Summers will also look at new upcoming technology in the ventilation and air conditioning sectors, specifically those related to data centres, including aisle containment, heat sinks and heat recovery possibilities.

Dr Lewis Brown, of Star Refrigeration, will then take to the stage to discuss HFC refrigerants and the introduction of low GWP alternative refrigerants, which are an environmentally friendly choice and will reduce energy use significantly.

Last up to discuss the issue will be George Hannah, the Technical Director of Airedale Air Conditioning, who will focus on energy recovery and how it can be used to power air conditioning and ventilation systems.

Mr Hannah will speak about liquid cooling and its uses in relation to Energy Reuse Effectiveness (ERE) and Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and how both must be improved to make the ventilation and air conditioning of data centres a sustainable endeavour.

The seminar will take place from 18:00 – 20:00 at the University of Leeds, LS2 9JT, in Lecture Theatre A in the School of Civil Engineering. Click here to register attendance.
