Dutch Data Center Association (DDA) is the trade association for data centers in the Netherlands, the bedrock of the Dutch economy. The DDA unites leading data centers in The Netherlands in a common mission: to strengthen the economic growth and awareness of the data center sector to government, media and society.
The DDA works from three focus areas: Energy & Sustainability, Education & Employment and Digital Economy & Mainport. We are committed to make the power usage of the industry more sustainable and efficient, and we focus on the reuse of data center residual heat. Furthermore, in close cooperation with education institutions, we create data center courses and enthuse students to choose a career in the data center industry. Lastly, we promote our industry and our position as Digital Gateway to Europe.
We also contribute to discussions about technical standards in the sector, and we actively facilitate our members and partners with information about relevant market developments during our (internal) events, publications and media channels.
