Stockholm – the Capital of Scandinavia

Known as Europe’s unicorn factory and with the largest number of regional headquarters in the Nordics, Stockholm is also the hub for colocation. The city has a reputation of being a green and innovative place and is aiming to become a world leader in developing, commercializing and applying new energy and environmental technology.

Welcome to Invest Stockholm

Stockholm Exergi

Stockholm Exergi is responsible for keeping the Stockholmers warm.  One way of doing that is to buy data center waste heat. In Stockholm, you can turn cost for cooling into revenue from recovered heat. In parallel your data center will contribute to a more sustainable future.

Welcome to Stockholm Exergi


Stefan – a business project leader at Ellevio – talks from the electrical networks’ point of view about distributing green energy to data centers in Stockholm.

Welcome to Ellevio
