Sustainable data in circular city
Seminar, September 9, 16.00-17.00, Invest Stockholm, Drottninggatan 33
The data center sector is the fastest growing consumer of electricity. That growth is largely driven by the Tech sector’s innovative applications. To make this vital part of the economy sustainable, it is essential that the Tech sector makes wise decisions and demands for its applications. Are the applications running on servers that use renewable electricity? Are the servers placed in data centers where the waste heat is reused for heating households and office buildings? Presented by Erik Rylander, Head of Stockholm Data Parks and Heat recovery at Stockholm Exergi.
