Business case for excess heat utilization from data centers

Heat recovery has been a trending topic over the last years in the data center sector. Many regional governments, such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and national governments such as Denmark and Norway have called on operators to take action. Many operators responded by giving the excess heat away for free.

To make the excess heat useful, the data center must invest in heat pumps, heat exchangers, and potentially make changes to the cooling system, all of which carry risk and investment with it. So why give it away for free?

In this steering group, we are looking at defining a reasonable price for excess heat, at different temperatures and using different means to recover the heat. This price ensures an adequate return on investment and risk-reward for the operator, thus creating a business case for heat recovery.
