03:00 ET QTS Groningen Data Center First to Supply Residual Heat to 10,000 Households, Buildings and Knowledge Institutions

Dec 20, 2022

USA - English Share this article WarmteStad initiative serves as a model for re-purposing data center heat for sustainable living GRONINGEN, Netherlands, Dec. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- QTS Data Centers , a leading provider of enterprise, hyperscale and government data center solutions, today announced a key sustainability initiative for its Groningen data center in the Netherlands. In partnership with WarmteStad, the sustainable utility company for the municipality of Groningen, QTS will be the first to supply residual heat for a large-scale sustainable district heating project. WarmteStad recently completed construction of an innovative heating plant that will use 100% of the residual heat from the QTS Groningen data center. Heat pumps, powered by renewable energy, deliver hot water through an existing underground heating network that has been installed at Zernike, Paddepoel and Selwerd. It is estimated that WarmteStad will produce sustainable and affordable heat for more than 10,000 households, buildings and knowledge institutions in the northern districts of Groningen by 2026. By heating with water, buildings can operate without a natural gas connection which significantly reduces CO2 emissions and supports Groningen's environmental goal to be completely CO2 neutral by 2035. "QTS has quickly established itself as an important member of the Groningen business community and key contributor to the sustainable district heating project," said Dick Takkebos, Director, WarmteStad. "We applaud their commitment to re-purposing expended data center heat into reliable, affordable and also sustainable heating solutions for the long term." Government Data Center North (ODC-Noord) is located in Groningen and is one of the four government data centers in the Netherlands. ODC-Noord provides data center and cloud services to eight ministries within the Dutch government in the form of HaaS, IaaS and PaaS services. "We are proud that, on behalf of the national government, we can further contribute to the sustainability of our data center services using the residual heat from the data center to heat homes in a sustainable way," said Jaap Jansma, Manager, ODC-Noord. "Sustainability is an important theme and in this way it becomes very concrete and visible!" "We are pleased to be the first to deliver our residual heat as part of WarmteStad's program in support of over 10,000 households, companies- and university buildings in Groningen with cost-effective heating solutions," said Travis Wright, VP of Energy and Sustainability, QTS. "QTS has committed to minimizing its data center carbon footprint through innovative solutions including the utilization of renewable energy, reclaimed water, and recycled materials to support both QTS and our customers' sustainability initiatives."    About QTS Data Centers QTS Realty Trust, LLC is a leading provider of data center solutions across a diverse footprint spanning more than 9 million square feet of owned mega scale data center space within North America and Europe.
