EcoDataCenter, located in Sweden, will be the world’s first climate positive data center, meaning emissions are reduced to the extent that EcoDataCenter will have a negative carbon dioxide footprint annually. EcoDataCenter’s energy efficiency also will lower costs to create a competitive advantage.
Schneider Electric will deliver energy efficiency solutions and products to the project.
The EcoDataCenter will also be connected to the local district energy system in the town of Falun. The excess heat from the servers and IT equipment will warm the buildings in Falun through the district heating system. In the summer, excess steam from the local electricity plant will run the machines cooling the data center.
