Data Center Dynamics


Data center and infrastructure design is at a crossroads. Sustainability targets are initiating scrutiny of old practices and becoming more receptive to new process designs and methodologies. One of the ways we are seeing that play out is via heat reuse and recovery by data center operators across Europe. What was once thought to be merely a futuristic possibility is starting to become a reality thanks to new cooling infrastructure technologies.

Heat reuse is capturing and removing high-grade heat from servers in the data center environment and redirecting it to district heating networks, industrial applications, and other schemes. Across Europe, and particularly in Scandinavia, projects like these are heating industrial sites and local facilities, such as schools and hospitals.
