The Utility of the Future

Both energy and digitalization are on everybody's minds today. Both play increasingly important roles in our daily lives, yet few realise how interdependent these industries truly are. Digitalization promises to re-align our economy around data and computation, but the digital economy of tomorrow will be built on the shoulders of today’s electrical infrastructure. Fewer still can see the tremendous industrial and societal opportunities when two fundamental requirements of the digital age integrate.

About the Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Alliance

Creating the net-positive digital economy.

Our mission is to enable a thriving digital economy without a negative impact on the environment through the creation of competitive and sustainable digital infrastructure. The Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Alliance is the first body to represent the digital infrastructure sector as a whole, driving collaboration across industries to reach the common goal of a net-positive digital infrastructure sector.


Max Schulze

Executive Chairman

The SDIA has a number of active workstreams that we are looking for like-minded organisations to participate in:

  • Combine the pillars of compute, power and network into a unified voice represented by the SDIA.
  • Promote the Sustainable Digital infrastructure that underpins the Digital Economy and how to benchmark it.
  • Build the roadmap towards net-positive digital infrastructure
  • Create a comprehensive set of metrics and measurements that can be adopted by the digital infrastructure industry and provide a route to Sustainable Digital Infrastructure.
  • Drive research & commercial implementation on new technologies needed to reach the targets.

We invite organisations working in this sector to join the SDIA and actively participate in the journey. For more information and to become a member please contact us.
