Amsterdam's most energy-efficient data center will provide heat to the city
|Amsterdam will be the first city in the Netherlands to build a data center capable of providing district heating. The construction of this data center in the port of Amsterdam area is currently being handled by the Caransa Group. It will consist of three 80-meter buildings. |
Amsterdam allowed the construction of a data center again in July. Before that, the city had a moratorium for a year, as the construction of data centers got out of control, as well as their electricity consumption. The deployment of data centers here can now only continue with the established standards for capacity and space. The new data center, according to the creators, will be the most energy-efficient in the city.
The use of waste heat from data centers for heating nearby businesses and residential buildings is more common in the Nordic countries, where there are district heating systems. The waste heat from the new Amsterdam facility will be supplied to the district heating network of Westpoort Warmte, a joint venture between Nuon, Vattenfall and the municipality of Amsterdam.
