Data Centre Industry Update – 3rd February

Globally, we are seeing a surge in data centre activity. This surge is largely brought about by remote working as a result of COVID-19. This is a turning point for work-management structures and the industry as a whole.

This seismic growth in online activity has created jobs in tech, engineering, construction and more as a result.  Our last update included Echeleon’s green power generation in Dublin and Google California’s new solar panels.

Here are this edition’s updates:

Data Centre Industry Update – 3rd February 2021

  • The African Digital Economy is growing, creating huge opportunities for Irish firms, rich in experience of working on data projects in Europe, to win data facility construction contracts.
  • ABB Power Conversion’s recent report states that most data storage businesses (53%) will consider power system upgrades to meet increased demand in the future.
  • The European Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact has been signed by 25 providers/operators and 17 associations, aiming for European climate neutrality by 2030.
  • DCP has forecasted a 46% growth in European Data Centre revenues by 2024.
  • Host in Ireland has cited an increase in 33% of the membership in 2021 – a nod to the continuous growth of indigenous, Irish-based companies in the data centre ecosystem.
