The Electrical Review PowerOn seminar on building the data centre of the future took place yesterday at the City of London Club. It was a great success.

Following on from yesterday’s event, we are looking forward to the Electrical Review Smart Lighting Summit, taking place 19 April at The Crystal in London, one of the world’s most sustainable buildings.

In the same way LED lighting has taken energy efficiency to a new level smart lighting is now allowing a more sustainable approached to how this lighting is controlled. The huge rise in the number of connected devices has helped raise awareness to the ‘Internet of Things’, but how will the lighting industry deal with the electrical infrastructure behind.  Electrical Review has been covering the latest developments in smart lighting controls over recent years, but our readers are now demanding more understanding of how they can deliver smart lighting and the challenges they need to overcome in a face-to-face environment. This event will be an opportunity to meet and network with senior people in the electrical space who will be meeting to learn and gain insights.

Distorting the market

Climate Change. It is intended to reward owners of marginal power stations for keeping them serviceable as possible back-up for peak consumption times.

The first ever auctions under it took place on 16 December: lucky winners are basically getting paid for keeping spare capacity on tap for the next 15 years.

Electric motors sold in the European Community are subject to compliance with certain efficiency requirements and design stipulations in accordance with the Ecodesign Requirements for Electric Motors RegulationEC 640/2009 as amended by EC 4/2014.

Electrical Review will again host a Data Centre PowerOn seminar for 2016. If you would like to register or require further information please do see the links below.

The even is free-to-attend, an afternoon seminar at the City of London Club on 1 March 2016, focusing on all aspects of power transmission and distribution in the data centre environment.
The programme aims to inform delegates how to best maximise energy efficiency in these areas and implement the right infrastructure to complement the evolution of the data centre.
