Can Europe's data center builders keep up with demand?
This is the first in a series of DCD>Think Tanks that brings together leaders from the data center construction ecosystem to talk openly about the challenges they face in meeting ever-growing demand for new capacity. From supply chain constraints exacerbated by the pandemic, to a growing skills shortage, for the next 12 months we can continue to expect significant disruption.
The objective of this closed-door virtual workshop is to explore the data center capacity challenge from different stakeholder perspectives and to define areas of common concern. We will use the findings to improve content programming over the coming months - DCD will create a written record of the meeting to share with the participants. The session will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
