GPP Webinar: Green Power—Datacenter Supplier & Customer Opportunities

Thursday, November 12, 2020
2:00 PM-3:00 PM EST

On November 12, 2020, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hosted a webinar on how data center providers and their customers are changing how the Internet of Things is powered! This webinar focused on the supplier and customer relationship in a Dallas-Fort Worth data center facility.

Learn from QTS Realty Trust, a leading data center solutions provider, about its experience developing renewable energy projects through innovative financing approaches (e.g., VPPA) to deliver zero emissions green power to its Dallas-Fort Worth data center. Hear from IBM regarding its experience as a customer of data center services and how IBM is working closely with its data center service providers through innovative green leasing agreements to meet its company’s goals to reduce the environmental impact of its data center operations.

Attendees learned the following:

  • What is the opportunity that data center providers can play using green power?
  • How are companies working together in the data center industry to meet the collective goals of data center consumers?
  • What role does innovative project financing play in providing clean green power to both data center suppliers and customers alike?
  • Where is the market headed, and what can we expect from leaders in the datacenter space moving forward?
