Waste heat and power distribution specialists discussed the interaction between digital infrastructure and urban environments at DCD's flagship event.
As more data centers move into cities, they must become more closely integrated with other urban infrastructure. This will be a two-way process, in which data centers can help cities improve their transport, energy and other services, while benefiting from the increased consumption of digital resources.
The future relationship between data centers and their host locations is still evolving; at the recent DCD>London event, we got a look at how digital infrastructure will be integrated into energy networks, as experts described what can be done - and what cities like Stockholm are already doing.
