In coming years, the data center industry will face growing pressure to find workable ways to integrate renewable energy sources into projects. The demand is driven by the need for improved efficiency, the growth of corporate social responsibility programs and the potential for U.S. federal legislation that will place caps on carbon emissions. Our speaker will discuss the promising new developments in renewable energy technology for the data center, as well as his latest venture in clean energy research at the Kennedy Space Center.

His diverse business and humanitarian projects range from ancient forest preservation in Ghana and coral reef protection in Haiti with One Village Planet; to establishing the world’s first Cyber Sister Cities to improve education, health and economic opportunities in developing communities with Sister Cities International; to the strategy creating global software leader Citrix Systems; to pioneering the application service provider (ASP) movement ushering in the online cloud computing era. Kennedy served as Chief Strategist at Citrix Systems where he played a significant role in the company’s post-‐IPO growth to become one of the world’s largest software companies joining the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ 100. In 2000, at the height of the Dotcom bust, Citrix had the highest EBITDA (47%) of any company listed on NASDAQ. As founder and Chair of the ASP Industry Consortium, he established the ASP Arbitration, Mediation and Dispute Resolution Center created in cooperation with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a division of the United Nations. The effort resulted in one of the largest public/private partnerships in the history of the UN with 800 of the world’s leading technology corporations and 175 signatory nations participating.
