As data has become central to the global economy, leaders in the field will share their predictions and experiences with visitors to DataCentres Ireland 2021.

With global data creation, processing and storage exploding, visitors to DataCentres Ireland will hear from leading industry figures on how to deal with the challenges coming down the pipeline.

Attendees will learn about how the data centre sector is approaching key issues related to energy, sustainability, connectivity, regional growth and efficiency.

Maurice Mortell, managing director for Ireland at Equinix, together with other data centre operators will speak on the panel debate ‘Leadership Discussion – Delivering Climate Neutral Data’ With more than a decade of experience before joining industry leader Equinix, Mortell will bring his insights to the role for Irish data centres in the global data economy.

Recently, data centres have been getting bad press linked to energy usage, and the impact this has on the Irish grid. However, what is not always appreciated is that for Ireland to achieve its green energy target, data centres are an essential part of the solution.

As well as providing new privately funded generating capacity to the country, data centres, through the management of their operating practices, can provide flexibility to the grid and facilitate the adoption of green/renewable energy sources, whether that be wind, solar, tidal or hydrogen, to the Irish power network, thus reducing the need for high-carbon-emitting power stations.

In total, more than 60 speakers will be present at the free-to-attend conference and exhibition, from industry figures to academic researchers, presenting ideas across a wide range of topics in panels, seminars and keynote addresses.

The associated international exhibition features the latest in new technology, suppliers and service providers for those involved in the design, build, management and operation of data centres and other critical environments, within areas such as food production, manufacturing and healthcare.

DataCentres Ireland 2021 will be held in the RDS on Tuesday 16 and Wednesday17 November, and entry is free for registered visitors.

DataCentres Ireland was founded in 2012 by Stepex and is supported by Host in Ireland, the DCA (the Data Centre Trade Association), IDA Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, Wind Energy Ireland, Technology Ireland, techUK and the Uptime institute.
