OCP 2020 Keynote: A Global Circular IT Industry: Opportunity and Imperative
The OCP community is doing a great job advancing operational energy efficiency. But without assessing pre-use (embodied) and post-EOL costs of massive infrastructure scaling, we’re only solving 1/3 of the environmental impact puzzle. Ali Fenn addresses what’s at stake and what it will take. And why the time is now to operationalize circular data centers to redefine lifetimes, maximize financial and sustainability value, and democratize access to growth.
