Artificial intelligence (AI) is not only transforming society on a broad scale but also fundamentally changing the infrastructure that underpins it, including data centres. As these facilities evolve, there is a pressing need to reconsider their design strategies, placing a strong emphasis on sustainable resource management. With growing concerns about the impact of AI on water usage in the US, data centres in the UK must carefully evaluate whether these concerns apply to them or whether they are overstated. 

Join us on 22 August for a detailed exploration of how UK data centres are addressing these challenges, particularly in their facility design, and ensuring their water consumption stays minimal in the AI era.

What to expect from the webinar? 

Topics discussed will include: 

  • Is AI increasing water consumption in data centres? How does the situation in the UK compare to the US?  
  • How are design requirements for data centres changing with the increasing demand for AI? Are liquid-based cooling systems becoming more popular? How do they work?  
  • How can innovative design solutions and technology be leveraged to optimise water usage and increase efficiency? 
  • What strategies can data centre operators and their clients employ to manage water risk in the era of AI? 

Who should attend? 

We encourage data centre operators, clients of data centres, companies deploying AI solutions, as well as sustainability professionals to join our webinar.
