Utilities & Data Centers 2022 Conference Conference Abstract:

Data centers are commercial & industrial (C&I) energy customers in a class of their own. Driven by corporate ESG goals (Environmental, social and governance), these highly sophisticated large load facilities demand lots of clean energy, energy efficiency and system resiliency. As we break into the digital age and tech giants continue hyper scaling, this segment of the energy market is poised for tremendous growth.

Attracting data centers to your region requires coordination between the utility and local government. Site selection is a competitive process and only utilities who fully understand the needs of data centers can attract and retain new customers. The 10th Annual Utilities & Data Centers 2022 Conference is the exchange between energy and the data center. The flagship conference returns, bringing together industry leading co-locators, enterprise users, a national laboratory, an international authority, and many more for a single, virtual place to network and collaborate.
