Energy efficient data centres
Data centres are the core of future industrial and customer services, especially taking into account
a fast development of clouds, mobile applications, Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial
intelligence (AI) techniques. Consequently data centres energy efficiency and sustainability has
becone a major research, business and societal problem. To address this problem the main goal of the
E2DC 2018 workshop is to study innovative methods to improve efficiency and
sustainability of data centres - important and ever growing source of energy consumption.
7th International Workshop on Energy Efficient Data Centres
Importantly, E2DC concentrates on a broader context of data centre ecosystem by
investigation of interactions with other data centres, smart cities and smart grids. Hence, the
workshop discusses topics such as the use of renewable energy, optimisation of cooling and heat
re-use, demand response techniques, federation of distributed data centres and many more.
This year, in addition to these general workshop topics, we would like to discuss the future trends
of data centre development, especially their architectures and location. We would like to discuss
whether a majority of data centres will be concentrated in large colocation data centres and public
clouds or if (and how) smaller systems can be integrated with existing infrastructure (e.g.
buildings, homes, wind power plants, etc.).
