PowerHouse Data Center’s Luke Kipfer Attending DCD Connect Virginia to Discuss the Changing Data Center Alley Landscape

PowerHouse Data Center’s Vice President of Data Center Development and Construction Luke Kipfer is attending DCD Connect Virginia Nov. 7-8 to discuss how his company is working diligently to find answers to a Data Center Alley market that has run out of existing use space for hyperscalers. 

DCD Connect Virginia is being hosted in the heart of Loudoun County, where data center demand is set to double once again at a time when space is limited. The event includes a host of new networking and relationship building opportunities to discuss the issues and opportunities facing this coveted hyperscaler market.

PowerHouse is a new data center disruptor in Northern Virginia that offers build-to-suit powered shells for operators and hyperscalers. The organization handles the entire process end to end, beginning with a land purchase and concluding with the construction of data center shells built to clients’ exact specifications. Data center properties (or property redevelopments in the case of the PowerHouse Pacific project that will host three build-to-suit data centers on the site of the former AOL headquarters ) feature scalable solutions that benefit  clients and the surrounding community, while offering the quickest speed to market of any Ashburn project.

The way the company is going about building these data centers is the story Luke will be telling at DCD Virginia. This includes buying existing properties and scraping/retrofitting them into reimagined powered shell, enabling scalable new state of the art space and power in a market that’s been 100% occupied by a legacy data center alley that’s getting stale and addressing the power issue by offering on-site substations in partnership with the local energy authority and data center community.

PowerHouse already has three data centers under development and there are plans for a total of six powered shell data centers representing 2.1 million square feet of data center space in Northern Virginia. 

Kipfer is a pivotal force behind AREP’s PowerHouse Data Centers deployment of next-generation data centers in Northern Virginia. He brings more than 15 years of exceptional mission-critical experience leading multi-million dollar data center design and construction. Before joining AREP, he was Regional Director at Direct Line Global where he oversaw project management and operations for several of the world’s largest hyperscale data center sites.
