Towards Net Zero at Hyperscale

[Stockholm 1 February 2017] Multigrid and Sweden’s leading district energy company Fortum Värme have agreed to develop solutions so that heat generated by Multigrid’s planned data centers in Stockholm can be recycled to Fortum Värme’s district heating system.

It is the parties’ common objective to increase the efficiency of the Stockholm energy system and to reduce both parties’ costs over time and to validate that heat recovery from data centers in large scale is commercially viable and technically feasible.

The agreement is a step in the work that Fortum Värme began in 2013 with Open District Heating® through which Fortum Värme enables decentralized supply of heat from external suppliers to the district energy system in Stockholm on commercial terms.

The co-operation between the parties is intended to result in heat recovery from two sites where Multigrid plans to construct data centers in the proximity of Fortum Värme’s district energy network. Multigrid will complete the first phase of its expansion by Q3 2018.
