Amsterdam’s district heating goals are to receive a boost with plans to use excess heat from a data centre to replace gas-fired central heating.
According to Dutch press reports, some of the heat from a data centre operated by global firm Equinix will be diverted to heat several buildings at the University of Amsterdam.
In future, Equinix reportedly aims to deliver 100 per cent of its residual heat to the district heating network, which supplies around 70,000 buildings.
This fits with the city’s goal of eliminating gas-fired central heating by 2050.
