Europe has a large population spread across multiple countries - there are 28 in the European Union and around 50 in the continent as a whole - with a huge and growing demand for mobile and digital services. The nations have a wide array of energy sources, including nuclear and renewables, and a climate which goes from the temperate heat of Naples to the Arctic cold of Northern Sweden.
All of that makes digital infrastructure complex to build and deliver, but there’s a long history of collaboration in the region on electricity grids, communications networks and on fundamental industrial and scientific research.
So when Europe gets together to consider how to make its infrastructure more Energy Smart, it’s well worth listening to the ideas that emerge.
That’s what happened at DCD’s Energy Smart event in Stockholm earlier this year.
