On 27 September, CISPE and EUDCA, in partnership with SpainDC are organising a conference on the vital role which data centres and cloud-enabled digital technologies can play in Europe’s dual green and digital transformation.

Join us for an exclusive, high-level event in Spain, where we will delve into how cloud-based digital technologies contribute to Europe’s efforts to decarbonise the EU’s economy. We will also explore the nature of the data centre transparency regime, as delineated by the upcoming transposition of the EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive.

Our expert speakers, from across European institutions, national representation and industry, will shed light on the opportunities for collaboration between the public and private sectors in driving the transition to a more sustainable digital and green economy. Data centres form the bedrock of Europe’s ability to leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, whilst safeguarding its global competitiveness and climate leadership.

Among the speakers, we are happy to announce:

  • Jorge Azcón, President of the Government of Aragon
  • Nikolaos Kontinakis, Policy Officer, Energy Efficiency Unit, DG ENER, European Commission
  • Dr. Ron Lipka, German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action
  • Joseph Cummins, Irish Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment
  • Pauline Fournols, Advisor – Energy & Environment, WindEurope
  • Manuel Gimenez, Executive Director, SPAIN DC

This event takes place at a pivotal moment, especially given the commitment of the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the EU to continue accelerating Europe’s ambitions towards a climate neutral and digitally-enabled future of the European economy.
