Green Grid appoints Geoff Lyon

Geoff Lyon, CEO/CTO at CoolIT Systems, a global supplier of Direct Contact Liquid Cooling (DCLC), has been elected Chair of The Green Grid’s Liquid Cooling Work Group.

'I am passionate about the value that liquid cooling applications have to offer and I’m excited to help facilitate The Green Grid initiatives for this distinguished group,' Lyon said. 'Liquid cooling technology is gaining tremendous momentum and being considered by an increasing number of installations. We need to leverage our collective knowledge to ensure that data centre decision makers have a responsible non-partisan resource to lean on for technical guidance.'

The Green Grid association is a global consortium of more than 200 member entities – companies, government agencies, educational institutions and individuals – dedicated to driving effective and accountable resource efficiency across the entire ICT ecosystem.

Critically the consortium does not endorse vendor-specific products or solutions; instead, it seeks to provide industry-wide recommendations on best practices, metrics and technologies that will improve the efficiency of cooling systems

The Green Grid association established the Liquid Cooling Work Group within its Technical Committee to provide a forum to push the best practice for liquid cooling implementations.

The Liquid Cooling Work Group will focus on all aspects of the datacentre that are impacted by liquid cooling, including facility planning, water quality best practices, management interface between datacentres and liquid cooling solutions.
