With the increasing expansion of information and communication technologies (ICT), the data center facilities are becoming a sizable part of the energy system. Datacenters are large loads which accounted for 3% of all electricity use worldwide and 2% of the global CO2 emissions, on par with the carbon footprint of the airline industry. It’s estimated that data centers will have the fastest growth in carbon footprint from across the whole ICT sector due to the increasing adoption of cloud computing and internet services. Future data centers require cutting-edge industrial automation, information, control and power system technologies to efficiently manage their power supply, cooling, security and other facilities. The efficiency of data centres has many contributors, such as heating, cooling, ventilation, data processing, and air-conditioning, which can be improved via active load balancing, energy consumption and electrical power management. This special session is organized to address the current challenges and problems of this new and fast growing industry from the perspective of efficiency. We invite researchers and technologists from a broad range of expertise and specializations to discuss and share their ideas, found problems, challenges and solutions in this multidisciplinary arena of research and development.
