Learn more about data centre sustainability at Data Centres Ireland 2021

Nov. 8, 2021
Data centres are energy and resource intensive. As the global demand for data continues to increase, what is the sector doing to respond to the net zero carbon debate.

Ireland is home to the largest data centre hub in Europe. With growing concerns over energy use and capacity, it is perhaps timely that Sophie Parry, Technical Application Consultant, Zumtobel Group, present on the topic of Data Centre Sustainability – What can be learned from other industries at this year's Data Centres Ireland event on 17th November at 12.30 pm.

In addition to supporting the seminar programme, the Zumtobel Group lighting brands, Zumtobel and Thorn, will be exhibiting their latest energy efficient solutions at the Exhibition and Conference in Dublin from 16-17th November on Stand 234.

The brands utilise the latest technology to deliver highly efficient lighting solutions which are secure and designed to meet the increasing technical requirements of modern mission critical campuses.

With a strong focus on sustainability and complete control of its value chain - from components to finished luminaires- the Zumtobel Group are an ideal lighting partner for developers & operators in this sector.

A comprehensive range of products will be displayed, including Zumtobel's award-winning and flagship data centre product TECTON.

TECTON is the world's first LED continuous-row track lighting system with an 11-pole current conducting section built into its trunking body. This means that the system comes ready equipped to meet tomorrow's needs. All functions such as power supply, lighting control, and connection to locally or centrally supplied emergency lighting are seamlessly integrated into the multifunctional trunking. Luminaires can be positioned flexibly onto the system and can be adapted to suit structural alterations at any time. TECTON copes effortlessly with various lighting requirements. The TECTON infrastructure remains unchanged and forms the functional backbone of the lighting ecosystem.

Designed for uniform illumination with minimal glare, TECTON offers easy installation, energy savings, and low maintenance, with six different light distribution optics, and optional UGR < 19 variants all supported with Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), tracking the ecological footprint of the product to evidence both embedded and operational carbon impact.

Steve Mansell, Divisional Director Critical Facilities, Zumtobel Group, comments, "With security breaches reported daily and growing concerns about high energy demands, data centre design has risen in prominence over the last few years. We are looking forward to presenting our latest innovations, including our data hall virtual reality experience visualising energy and product savings through racking colour & optical lighting control. As a global business we are ideally positioned with our single-source supply chain, R&D investment and international coverage to offer their audience a sustainable, secure lighting system."
