Virginia has emerged as the world’s largest data center market, and the data center sector is now a substantial economic driver statewide. The NVTC Data Center Awards celebrate individuals who have advanced and championed the region’s data center industry. This year, the award categories recognize data centers that have implemented innovative construction projects, energy-efficient practices and impactful community engagements.


“Data centers are the engines of the digital economy. As enterprises rapidly embrace digital transformation, data centers continue to fuel that transformation,” said Vinay Nagpal, chairman of NVTC Data Center and Cloud Community. “The NVTC Data Center Awards are a celebration of the stellar success of Northern Virginia as the leading data center market globally. On behalf of the entire leadership board, I congratulate all the finalists for their outstanding contributions to this important sector of the digital infrastructure industry.” An independent panel of business leaders selected the finalists in eight award categories.

For 2023, eight award categories will recognize data centers that implement innovative construction projects, energy efficient practices, or impactful community engagements. In addition, the awards will honor individuals who have advanced the data center sector or championed the industry. All award categories will be judged by an independent panel of business leaders.
