QTS refits Dutch datacenter to warm thousands of homes with waste heat
Thousands of residents living in the Groningen region of The Netherlands will soon find their homes warmed by waste heat from local datacenters.
QTS is latest datacenter operator to team up with local utility WarmteStad to connect their facility to the Groningen district heating grid. Doing so required the construction of a specialized plant, which captures and concentrates the heat generated by the datacenter before distributing it via existing water pipes.
