Gain insights into the digital infrastructure industry and lead the megatrend of digital infrastructure
In the first year of the "14th Five-Year Plan", the importance of the digital economy has been repeatedly emphasized. The digital industry is developing rapidly, and the data center as a digital infrastructure is at a critical time point of transformation. The contradiction between increasing energy consumption and energy saving and emission reduction, high computing power and the traditional structure, the demand for digital empowerment and the low degree of industrial openness, has become increasingly prominent. Stand still and will be abandoned by the times. Through exchanges and discussions, it has become a consistent demand for upstream and downstream industries to recognize the trend and seize opportunities. The IDCC2021 conference is at the right time and provides an excellent platform for upstream and downstream exchanges and cooperation in the industry.
The process of sharing is also a process of communication and learning. During the conference, nearly a hundred guests discussed the topics of data center green development, planning and design, construction layout, investment and financing, international development, digital empowerment, etc., expounding their understanding of the industry, sharing the experience and lessons gained in the past year, analyzing technology and the market development trend.
Main Forum 1: Energy, Computing Power, Digitization
At the opening ceremony of the conference and the main forum, the guests focused on the three themes of "energy, computing power, and digitalization", starting from a macro perspective, with in-depth thinking and precise insights, leading the audience to understand the industry, clarify the direction, and grasp the trend . "Data Center Planning and Design Practice Forum", "Data Center Planning and Design Innovation Forum", "Large Data Center Construction Layout", "Capital Boosts Data Center High-Quality Development Forum", "Data Center International Cooperation Forum", "Data Center Carbon The topics of the guests sharing in thematic forums such as "and Forum" are more detailed and in-depth, and the sharing of technological innovation and practical implementation has benefited the audience a lot.
Main Forum 2: High Performance Development of the Digital Industry
The country attaches great importance to the digital economy. With the introduction of a series of policies such as "Integrated Big Data Center Layout" and "Eastern Data Center, Western Computing", local governments have also participated in the data center industry layout and construction. As policy makers and industry managers, local governments also need to obtain more comprehensive and true industry feedback through industry exchanges to further guide the high-quality development of the digital industry.
The "Digital Industry High-quality Development Forum" co-sponsored by the Data Center Committee of China Communications Industry Association, People's Venture Capital, and Digital China Industry Development Alliance was also held simultaneously.

High-end dialogue: focus on "computing power empowerment" and "sustainable development"
Innovative thinking is often enlightened in collisions and blooms in communication. IDCC2021 held two roundtable forums centered on the topics of energy, computing power, and digitization, and presented two wonderful discussions for participants in the form of high-end dialogues and collisions of ideas.
How will computing power empower digitization, and what computing power support is needed for digital transformation? Under the auspices of Sun Bin, Chief Operating Officer of Zhujian Intelligent, Zhang Jing, General Manager of Information Center of Shenzhen Gas Group Co., Ltd., Fu Qingming, Vice President of Jingdong Group, Yang Song, Deputy General Manager of Shanghai Shangtang Technology Development Co., Ltd., and Deputy General Manager of Kehua Data President Lin Qingmin and other experts conducted in-depth discussions on the topic of "digitalization of computing power empowering industry". The guests expressed their opinions, analyzed the status quo of digitization, clarified the mutual promotion of computing power and digitization, and looked forward to the future development of computing power.

They will discuss new data centers with high technology, high energy efficiency, high reliability, and high security. The sustainable development path has been analyzed in depth from multiple perspectives and perspectives.
Show Excellent results and Encourage Learning
For the data center industry that is advancing through continuous innovation and exploration, the case is the best mentor. In the past year's development, industry pioneers who have the courage to innovate have conducted many explorations and practices, and new technologies, new products, new models, and new solutions for new scenarios and new needs continue to emerge.
At the conference site, the "China IDC Industry Annual Selection" award ceremony was held to commend and award trophies to upstream and downstream companies in the IDC industry that have made useful explorations and achieved outstanding results in the past year.
The implementation of the data center is closely related to the development level of the local digital industry. Factors such as policy support, business environment, and the implementation of talents are all related to the smooth development of an enterprise. Shaoguan City, Zhongwei City, Gui'an New District, Zixing City, etc. dare to innovate in the process of promoting the high-quality development of the local urban digital industry, respect the law of industrial development, and create a good environment for the development of the local digital industry. Won the "City Digital Industry High-Quality Development Award" award in recognition of its innovative initiatives and achievements.
The forum set up an "excellent data center enterprise exhibition area" to display the products, services and solutions of outstanding enterprises. The exhibition area attracted dozens of well-known IDC services in China, including Huawei, Alibaba Cloud Infrastructure, Global Data, 21Vianet, Heying Data, Weichai, Kehua Data, Sino-Ocean Data, Midea Building Technology, Haoyun Changsheng, etc. Suppliers, IDC equipment suppliers, and solution providers will participate in the exhibition to showcase their products and solutions. In front of each booth, there are constantly interested participants staying in the footsteps, or carefully watching the products, or discussing and communicating with each other, and seeking cooperation space.
Standardize Technical Standards, Guide Innovation and Development
At present, upstream and downstream industries have realized the importance of data center carbon neutrality, but related exploration is still in its infancy. Different innovation directions and different technology selections have caused the construction of low-carbon and zero-carbon data centers to not only lack unified standards and certifications, but also to repeat R&D and invalid innovations, wasting a lot of resources and time. Therefore, the industry urgently needs a set of unified, universal, guiding and practical data center carbon-neutral construction standards.
Under the leadership of the Data Center Committee of China Communications Industry Association, a number of enterprises and institutions jointly drafted the first guiding standard for zero-carbon data centers in China) "T/CA 301-2021 "Zero-carbon Data Center Construction Standards"" The launch ceremony was held at the IDCC2021 grand ceremony.
The "Standard" defines the zero-carbon data center, and puts forward clear requirements for the zero-carbon data center planning, site selection, design, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance, dismantling and recycling, etc., provide effective standard support for the construction of the zero-carbon data center.
Show the Market Panorama and Analyze the Future of the Industry
A research report with solid materials and professional analysis is a beacon on the road of industrial development. In-depth and comprehensive research on the industry chain and market analysis based on first-hand data is the best way to gain a deeper understanding of the industry.
At this conference, "Digital Industry Think Tank" KZ Consulting reported on the "Research Report on the Application Status of Electromechanical Equipment in Data Centers" (
