After 2018’s groundbreaking inaugural event, DCD is returning to one of Europe’s most energy aware capital cities to host an international conference that focuses on the digital infrastructure energy challenge. The event brings together 500+ senior decision makers from the sector to include pan-European colocation operators, major hyperscalers working in the Nordics and the engineering ecosystem that supports them, together with strong representation from government and the energy sector.

“We’re delighted to be working with DCD to create an international showcase,” says Johan Börje, director of marketing for event co-host Stockholm Data Parks. “The Nordics have become a polestar for large scale data center investment and a sustainable approach to this remains our top priority.”

In addition to a full day conference programme on 2nd April, the event will host an expo, pre-conference workshops and roundtables, VIP networking sessions and specially organised site visits to KVV8 the world’s largest urban biofuel co-generation plant, the SaltX energy storage innovation lab and to Ericsson’s Rosersberg data center.

Convergent Evolution on the menu

The dual-tracked conference programme will explore the convergent evolution of data centers and energy networks, from source to substation, where renewables and onsite power generation, virtual power plants (VPPs) and power purchase agreements (PPAs) are impacting site selection, infrastructure ownership models and investment opportunities. Participating companies include Stockholm Exergi, Ellevio, MTU, Vattenfall, Nodepole, OX2, Westfalen WindIT...

Inside the data center we will be exploring the latest technology innovations including the application of AI, cooling tech, building design and the latest energy storage solutions coming down the pipe. The event will showcase companies such as Carbon Relay, Upside Energy, Eaton, Systemair, EcoCooling, Sunbird and many more.
