Data centers demand 100% availability and ‘up-time’. This requires a robust and dependable supply of power.
The Nordic region is the world leader in regional coupling of electricity grids and markets. Interconnectors join countries across land and sea, while a common Nordic “spot market” ensures efficient trade across subnational price zones. This cooperation increases security of supply, lowers system costs and facilitates the integration of renewables.
The Nordic electricity system is one of the world’s most secure, affordable and renewable, including wind, hydro, biomass, solar, geothermal, wave and tidal power.
Internationally recognized for their commitment to green power, Nordic governments are looking to expand renewable energy, guaranteeing future access to plentiful power. The combination of a robust grid with consistently, and predictably low costs makes the Nordics a compelling choice for those managing constantly increasing amounts of data.
DigiPlex data centers run on 100% certified renewable hydro energy. Our ability to prove the renewable provenance of every kWh consumed will be a significant advantage and can support businesses on their journey towards a NetZero impact.
Green power without the premium.
The abundance of renewable energy drives consistently low energy prices. Over the last decade, electricity prices in the region have been the lowest in Europe, ranging between EUR 0.04–0.08 per kWh.
Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) is a metric for appraising the effective use of electrical power in a data center. By moving from an average data center with a PUE of 1.67 to an energy efficient one with a PUE of 1.2, you save as much as a quarter on power consumption – and on your power bill.
Our newest data centres are designed to deliver PUE levels as low as 1.1-1.2 by implementing indirect evaporative cooling, concert control, air flow management and increased data hall temperatures on a large scale.
Data center power infrastructure.
DigiPlex’s electrical infrastructure delivers a robust, low voltage power supply to all ICT customers’ areas. For our sites at Fetsund, Oslo and in Stockholm, the UPS configuration is 2N. Our data centers deploy facility-wide energy measuring devices for monitoring both customer ICT and in-house infrastructure power consumption, so that we can continuously monitor PUE performance.
Uninterruptible power supply.
Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) means our customers equipment remains supported with stable continuous power if national utility supplies become irregular or fail altogether. UPS systems also protect customer ICT equipment from damage from “out of tolerance” mains supply conditions, spikes, dips or surges in the primary mains power source.
How are data centers powered?
Data centers demand 100% availability and ‘up-time’ which takes a robust and dependable supply of power. The Nordic nations have one of the world’s most reliable electricity grids. The combination of plentiful and flexible hydropower and other renewable power sources in the region helps to ensure stable supply.
Data center power standards.
Our innovative design solutions mean we can combine your high and low density requirements and implement flexible SLAs that match your power and cooling requirements.
How much power does a data center use?
A firm deploying 100MW will save approximately $1 billion over 10 years, just by choosing to place a data center in Sweden or Norway versus a UK equivalent. This is based on the difference in the cost of power alone. By placing your data in a low PUE DigiPlex Nordic data center the cost benefits are increased.
