Gustav Bergquist – Chairman of the Board, Swedish Datacenter Industry Association will lead a panel 16.30 at upcoming Datacenter Forum in Stockholm 2019.
The Nordics have during recent years become a hot-bed for Hyperscale Data Center builds. Most recently Microsoft announced a Data Center build in Staffanstorp in the southern parts of Sweden. At the same time as the Nordics is set to experience a continued surplus of energy there is a significant debate if there is enough peak power capacity available. Major cities face local constraints on transmission and in places this has lead to investments turning elsewhere. Activities to increase heat recovery have largely failed and the skills shortage seems imminent.
In this panel discussion we explore facts and debate opportunities and obstacles for the industry in the coming years in a discussion amongst industry professionals, infrastructure owners and the political leadership. The panel discussion is chaired and presented by the Swedish Data Center Industry Association.
