Amsterdam looking to expand data center excess heat reuse
Erik Rylander, head of Stockholm Data Parks, gave a presentation on the integration of data centers in modern sustainable cities at last week’s conference on waste heat arranged by Dutch Data Center Association in Amsterdam.
Digital services plan an increasingly important role in our lives and the economy and data centers are essential for these services to operate properly. This year, the conference was mainly focusing on how data centers can be integrated (from an energy perspective) in society for the benefit of both data centers, city and environment.
The world-leading data center training provider DCPRO and Stockholm Data Parks have agreed to work together to launch DCPRO’s new Center of Excellence in Stockholm. The Center will serve as the hub for providing training to data center practitioners throughout the Nordic region and Northern Europe.
DCPRO is delighted to announce the launch of a new Center of Excellence in collaboration with Stockholm Data Parks. Working together with Stockholm Data Parks allows us to enhance our course content with the best in class insights regarding some of the key trends for data center efficiency,” says George Rockett – MD DCPRO.
The first courses in Stockholm, named “Data Center Design Awareness” and “Energy Professional” will take place on October 16 and October 23, respectively. For more information about the courses, please visit https://www.dcpro.training/dcp-scandinavia.

May 14, New York. Johan Börje, Stockholm Data Parks in panel discussion at Capre Media Event where he offered a European perspective on incentives.
“We have a completely different type of competition pool,” he began. “One should be really careful in Europe to actually engage in incentives, because ultimately the European Commission may come back and say that was illegal. And then you have to pay it back. Because you’re not allowed to give specific incentives – they all have to be general to the economy.”
