We are committed to a more sustainable tomorrow. Today, our data centers operate on 100% renewable energy sources, as certified by our energy partner, Vattenfall. For the near future, we are investigating innovative solutions to recycle waste heat and become more energy efficient.
We are currently in talks with the Van Nelle Factory, where Smartdc Rotterdam data center operates, to install a state-of-the-art heat pump.
This pump will use residual heat generated by our servers to heat up the factory during the cold months, sharply reducing the usage of gas and electricity for heating, thus saving significant amounts of CO2.
Smartdc is one of the founding members of the Dutch Data Center Association (DDA). With our Founder and Managing Director, Richard Boogaard, being an active board member of the DDA, we are actively helping other Dutch data centers transition to be fully sustainable.
