H&M data centre will help heat local community


Fashion retailer, H&M, is building a new 1MW data centre in Stockholm, Sweden, which will be designed for heat recovery. Expected to provide enough energy to support heating requirements for 2,500 apartments in the city, the new facility is expected to be operational next year and recovers heat using pumps in an N+1 configuration, providing for redundancy should a heat pump fail. Excess energy recovered from the data centre will be fed directly to the Stockholm power grid at the correct temperature, where it will be distributed to residential clients of energy company, Fortum Värme.

H&M’s new 1MW data centre is a part of Stockholm Data Parks, a joint initiative between the city of Stockholm and Fortum Värme, to provide infrastructure to make Stockholm a preferred location for large data centres that provide heat recovery.
