Current Challenges

  • How do we "value" data center heat?
  • What do current heat price models look like?
  • What are the technical requirements to connect data center heat and building /district heating systems?
  • What would a regulatory environment look like that enables data center heat utilization?
  • How can we facilitate acceptance of heat utilization from data centers?
  • How can we develop the framework for service level and purchase agreements?
  • How do we integrate hyperscale data center heat into the wider energy system?
