Ciaran Flanagan
I'm Head of Data Center Business Development at ABB globally, tasked with consolidating ABB as a key player in the datacenter industry. Prior to ABB I was Head of Datacenter Strategy at Nokia & previously held Consulting and Technology leadership roles at Verari Systems and Intel Corporation. I was a Founding Contributor to the EU Datacenter Code of Conduct and a Contributing Member of The Green Grid and the Open Datacenter Alliance. I also served as a Judge for Uptime Institute's Green Enterprise IT Awards in 2012. From a professional perspective I'm very interested in energy politics and how it will affect the datacenter industry but also how ABB can help this industry find more effective and efficient ways to manage energy consumption.

Innovation will save the world (Really)

Our only limit should be what we think the opportunities might be tomorrow, not what they are today.

Data centers can fuel a more sustainable future

By taking a more conscientious attitude toward our energy consumption, we can both cut expenses and become better stewards of the environment.

A question from Datacentre World: Can gensets get a new lease on life?

The investment in diesel gensets doesn't have to be a sunk cost, but perhaps a revenue opportunity?
