Executives and other leaders in IT will soon get a chance to summon and share ideas about the best energy-efficient technologies at a national event that addresses green technologies and how to best apply them.
Held May 5 in Des Moines, Iowa, the Heartland GreenUp Symposium & Expo promotes awareness of and best practices in cutting overall energy consumption and carbon footprints in IT. The event presents four information tracks: Green computing, alternative energy, public/private green initiatives, and forecasting technology’s impact by 2020. Those who won’t be able to make it to the Midwest can participate virtually.
Among the speakers are Randy Mott, executive vice president and chief information officer at HP; Simon Mingay, research vice president at Gartner Research; Bill Weihl, “green energy czar” at Google; and Andrew Fanara at the Environmental Protection Agency.
A full list of speakers, schedule and additional information can be found on the website of the Technology Association of Iowa, which hosts the forum.
