Swedish Data Center News

Looking back at the first half of the year 

We are now at the beginning of summer, and many will soon take the opportunity for a few weeks of well-deserved rest. Looking back at the first half of the year, it has been an intense period for the Swedish Datacenter Industry with many activities where we have been visible in various contexts, but we especially want to highlight our Nordic pavilion at the Datacloud Global Congress in Cannes on June 4-5. Our collaboration with other industry organizations in the Nordics is a great example of how, with a unified voice, we can utilize shared resources to showcase the advantages of a strong data center industry in our countries, contributing to strong digital development and a more sustainable society.

This collaboration continues in the fall with the creation of Nordic Datacenter Week, where we invite the industry in general, as well as the public and private sectors, to an open dialogue. Throughout the week, events will take place across Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Iceland. The focus will be on the social and economic impacts of data centers and the benefits they create in society. Key themes:

  • Public perception of data centers in local communities
  • Education and competence
  • The role of data centers in the digital economy

If you wish to contribute and be visible during this week, please contact Fredrik Lindahl for further information.

Regarding the implementation of the EED for Sweden, we are in dialogue with the government office regarding the upcoming legislation and how it will be practically implemented. Information is expected to be released in early autumn

SweDCI in the world

May has been a very "eventful" month. SweDCI has been present in Madrid, Frankfurt and Stockholm. At DCD Connect, Erik Törnqvist of Bergvik was showing of the SweDCI Colors. Pär Johansson from Systemair had the SweDCI plaque front and center at their stand. SweDCIs own Fredrik Lindahl, together with many of our members was at the Stockholm Tech show educating the visitor about the Datacenter industry and the positives of having many more datacenters built in Sweden.

When are visiting the events please keep an eye out for the SweDCI plaque and do not hesitate to approach our members and ask about our Association. 

Meetings and webinars

Members meeting at ABB in Västerås on the 24th of September SweDCI invites its member to the first meeting after the summer. Join us at ABBs office at 13.00. Location and agenda will be presented on our website later on.
