Data Center Webinar: Leveraging Energy Management to Meet Critical Energy Needs

May 25, 2021



 

This discussion will explore many of the energy-related challenges for data centers and other critical facilities as we look at new and rapidly evolving issues like grid reliability, energy efficiency, renewables, and sustainability within this and other critical industries.

The panel will consist of thought leaders from CPower Energy Management: KC Mares, Director of Data Center Strategies, who brings decades of data center energy management experience, and Nate Soles, VP of National Accounts, who manages dozens of data center clients and strategies across North America.

This is an interactive discussion with a live Q&A from the audience. The session will focus on several key areas and learning objectives:

  • Understanding the most important challenges facing data centers today
  • How demand-side energy management can and should be a critical strategy for critical facilities
  • Understanding the relationship between energy efficiency, reliability, and resilience
  • How data centers can play a key role in the grid of the future
  • How emergency generation and clean energy can work together for a better future

The Evolving US Electric Grid 2021

April 21, 2021



The past, present, and future of the grid and demand-side energy management

Each of the six deregulated energy markets and their grid operators in the US have been tested in recent years, pushed to the limit by catastrophic weather events, rising demand, and the challenge of integrating renewables and other clean resources. 

As the country progresses in its third decade of energy market deregulation, a question that’s been asked of late is whether or not competitive energy markets can provide the US electric grid with the energy and the resilience it needs to sustain its evolution toward a carbon-free future. 

CPower’s Ken Schisler and Mathew Sachs are ready to answer this and other questions about the evolving grid, energy markets, and how organizations can position themselves for success with demand-side energy management in 2021 and beyond. 

This 30-minute webinar covers:

  • The future trajectory of the grid: What will the omnidirectional grid of tomorrow look like?
  • How commercial organizations can achieve their sustainability goals with demand-side energy management.
  • The importance of FERC Order 2222 and what it means for organizations participating in demand-side energy management
  • There will also be an open question and answer session at the end of the webinar.
