Green initiatives and sustainability go hand in hand. Not just in California and on the West Coast but it’s also a major buzz word in the energy consumptive world of technology.
Who would have thought that engineers are just as consumed by the notion of optimal power use? Well they are. In the data center industry “The Green Grid” is such a hot concept that an organization of the same name travels around North America talking about the process and best practices surrounding green facilities management that supports both productivity and sustainability.
The Green Grid explores and dissects the latest projects and enterprises that have found an effective method to run their businesses profitably while using minimal energy for maximum results.
It used to be that energy use had to be on high volume in order to produce results. Not anymore. The Greed Grid dispels these myths through case studies that demonstrate how strategies like Server Power Management, compute productivity, and other tools have been successfully implemented in the world’s largest and most energy efficient IT corporations. How they accomplished this provides valuable objective for the short and long-term.
Kathrin Winkler, a board member and secretary at The Green Grid has been speaking extensively over the past few years about how companies have made their green vision comes true. Through a collaborative efforts Winkler and The Green Grid have guided organizations towards becoming Green leaders without losing Greenbacks. Winkler also founded and sponsored EMC’s Engineering Green Team and it Design for Environment program. Working with business leaders, Winkler and The Green Grid has become a source of leadership for Green and soon-to-be Green enterprises. Winkler will share her expertise to the San Francisco tech community next month as she presents an eBay Case Study at the Marriott Marquis on July 17.
