plan A Networks Berlin

plan A Networks is a Germany-wide network initiative for architects and the real estate industry. We invite you to an exclusive evening of discussion and dialogue – with top-class guests, inspiring insights, culinary extravaganzas, and stimulating conversations.

Google has just announced that Berlin-Brandenburg will become one of 27 Cloud Regions worldwide from 2022. Super-fast, highly efficient – the digital transformation of our cities is considered to be a crucial component in counteracting climate change. But how should we deal with their high energy consumption? Before Covid-19, Internet use in Germany was already causing more CO2 emissions than all air traffic combined. The data centres at the heart of digitization require an especially large amount of energy. Will we soon be heating our cities with waste heat from data centres?

Dr. Ralph Hintemann is a partner and senior researcher at the Borderstep Institute for Innovation and Sustainability.  With a doctorate in economics, he has been researching new technologies for more than 25 years, with a special focus on data centres – and with an eye for the big picture. We look forward to inspiring insights!

Moderator for the evening: Nadin Heinich, plan A
