How we fuel our vehicles, heat our homes, and power our industries is undergoing fundamental change. Well-deployed but inefficient technologies, such as internal combustion engine cars and oil/gas boilers are being replaced with electrified and higher-efficiency alternatives. And renewables such as sunlight, wind, thermal, and others, supported by next generation battery storage, are fueling an evergreater share of energy demand.
Life is coming at us fast, so our thinking about policy solutions for the future needs to be bigger, bolder and much more imaginative. We have just launched the second edition of Reimagine public policy. 20 truly, disruptive and innovative ideas to help solve today’s policy challenges. Four of them are brand new for this year – Reimagine high streets, digital platforms for life-long learning, workforce and migration.
The Reimagine ideas show how to:
• Revitalise the Great British High Street
• Remove the need for any family to choose between heating and eating
• Match hirers and firers to give workers facing redundancy new skills
The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF).
Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way
to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and
potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.
With the right approach, you can combine the mobility of wireless with the performance of wired networks. To get up to speed on 802.11ac, we're providing an 802.11ac migration cheat sheet and webinar on-demand.
