QTS | January 02, 2023
In an industry first, QTS Data Centers, a leading data Center solutions provider, recently announced its commitment to supply residual heat to a large-scale district heating project in partnership. Headquartered in Netherlands, QTS in collaboration with WarmteStad, a sustainable utility company of the municipality of Groningen, will supply the heat out of its Groningen data Center as part of its sustainability initiative.
WarmteStad recently unveiled an innovative heating plant that will utilize 100% residual heat from the QTS Groningen data Center. Heat pumps powered by renewable energy distribute hot water via an existing underground heating network installed in Zernike, Paddepoel, and Selwerd. By 2026, WarmteStad expects to produce sustainable and affordable heat for over 10,000 households, buildings, and knowledge institutions in Groningen's northern districts.
Buildings can operate without a natural gas connection when heated with water, significantly reducing CO2 emissions and supporting Groningen's environmental goal of being completely CO2 neutral by 2035.
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."
