Event description
Join us in discussing how to balance your European Data Center Strategy to take into account (green) electricity supply and demand!

About this Event

Innovation Norway is hosting Nordic experts within the data center industry, that have sites in Norway, the Nordics, and in Europe to discuss how to balance your needs of data privacy, disaster recovery with electricity supply in the single digital European market. Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Dublin (Flap-d) are the traditional European markets for data centers however these markets are becoming saturated and companies need to look at secondary markets to deliver their services in a cost-efficient and reliable way – and increasingly in a more sustainable way.

We will be hearing from speakers who live and breathe data centers and who will help us shed light on what opportunities exist outside of FLAP-D in Europe, when does it makes sense to shift load, and how to incorporate green energy sites in the Nordics within your portfolio.
