This is a fairly low resolution (but watchable) video of the webinar.
The seminar focuses on data centres in Ireland and the international standards used in their design. There are two speakers and a combined Q&A session.
David McAuley is an advisor to the award-winning Host In Ireland initiative. He works closely with the data and energy industries to overcome power and sustainability challenges. He is still discovering the broad range of factors that will drive the digital future.
David has worked for the Irish government for a decade to address the growing challenge of energy use and climate change. His role with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland included the development and promotion of energy efficiency and low carbon technologies. He was Ireland’s representative across several EU energy technology research committees, and helped to establish the IERC.
David applies his insights and experience to assist FDI companies and investors to navigate Ireland’s policy landscape. Understanding how Ireland’s various systems work is a useful attribute. Learning from outside what the barriers are, we may help to find solutions.
A mechanical engineer, David has spent 20 years serving in a diverse range of industries - from the construction and operation of pharmaceutical and electronics manufacturing plants, to sustainable energy and government policy roles.
