As technology continues to improve, so too does the responsibility of infrastructure providers in ensuring an environmentally-friendly future. Nordic data centre firm DigiPlex has announced a scheme whereby waste heat from its facilities will be reused in residential apartments across Oslo. The company signed a letter of intent with Fortum Oslo Varme, Norway’s largest district heating supplier, to see to the needs of approximately 5,000 apartments across the Norwegian capital.DigiPlex insists, in its own words, that ‘a progressive data centre industry must do what it can to reduce its environmental footprint.’ “We are proud to reinforce our leading role in our industry regarding climate change, using renewable power and the waste heat from our data centre at Ulven to keep the citizens of Oslo warm,” said Gisle M. Eckoff, DigiPlex CEO.
