One challenge of society is to reach the United Nation’s max 2°C-climate change goal, which means to reduce at least 80% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. With an increasing share of global industry’s carbon footprint data centres have a high responsibility towards this goal. Innovations like new efficient and energy proportional server generations, energy-aware workload management, or highly responsive data center designs have contributed to slowing down the formerly sharp increase of data centres’ energy demand. However, the ongoing global digitization is counteracting this development. E2DC offers the opportunity for researchers of all data centre domains to commonly advance the potential of yet unknown innovations in order to continue the race for sustainability in and by data centers.
