Following the recent Queensland Sustainability Showcase – hosted by Queensland Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability Kate Jones - the State’s leading Companies from the Environment and Energy Sectors were guests today of The Honourable Anna Bligh MP, Premier of Queensland.
The event was also attended by many State Ministers, and The Premier spoke about the current and future plans for the Queensland Energy Sector – which has received a recent boost with the signing in China of the largest single energy deal in the Country’s history. The Premier also underlined the importance of developing environmentally friendly energy solutions moving forward, and she praised the Companies in attendance for their commitment to the future success of Queensland Strategic Directions Group was one of around 40 organisations to receive a personal invitation from the Premier’s Office. The Company is gaining international attention because of its innovative designs and its commitment to the incorporation of alternative energy or low energy options.
Strategic Directions has recently designed a world’s best practice geothermal powered data centre (with zero carbon emissions) for Queensland based ASX Company Geodynamics, which has gained the attention of major international organisations.
Strategic Directions is also involved in the design of a several world class, energy efficient data centres, able to be powered by alternate energy sources and technologies, including wind, solar, biomass, gas and hydro. Interest in this initiative is being shown by government and commercial organisations in Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, Victoria South Australia, Tasmania and the USA.
With Data Centres already acknowledged as one of the heaviest industrial consumers of power around the world – the design of energy efficient, alternate energy data centres for the future is gaining the attention of Governments and Organisations around the globe, and these facilities will be a critical part of the international communities’ drive to move to renewable energy power production and a reduction in carbon emissions.
