(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq)
New York, May 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Nordic Data Center Construction Market - Industry Outlook & Forecast 2023-2028" -
. Operators are signing PPA with renewable energy providers to increase sustainability by decreasing their carbon footprint. For instance, Telia and Telenor signed a PPA with Better Energy for a solar park construction in Denmark.
. There is increased growth in cloud regions set up by multiple hyperscale data centers operators, such as Google, Microsoft, AWS, Oracle, and Meta.
. There is an increase in initiatives being taken by various governments across the regions to make the respective countries carbon-neutral in the future. Operators are moving through more sustainable construction methods like wood and mycelium.
. Supply chain disruptions, increasing inflation rates, shortage of skilled workforce, and political disturbances in Russia will likely hurt the market.
5G DEPLOYMENTS FUELING DATA CENTER INVESTMENTS
. Nordic countries are deploying 5G rapidly, driving investments in data centers, especially edge data centers.
. In July 2022, Eltel and Telenor Norway signed an agreement for USD 36-40 million for 2023-2024 for upgrading and strengthening the telecommunication network of Telenor 5G in Denmark.
. Telenor and Tele2 combined to form a joint venture known as Net4Mobility which expects to cover 90% Swedish population with 5G by the end of the year 2023 and 100% by 2024.
. Iceland is showing tremendous signs of 5G progression. Síminn, an Icelandic network operator, has targets for nationwide 5G coverage by the end of 2022.
INCREASING CLOUD SERVICES ADOPTION IS BOOSTING THE MARKET GROWTH
Nordic companies mainly opt for a hybrid cloud approach by enjoying public and private cloud benefits such as enhanced security. Companies across Nordics are shifting their workloads to the cloud to strengthen their digitalization goals and enjoy cloud advantages. For instance, a Swedish bank migrated its services to the AWS cloud to analyze customer behavior and make data-driven decisions effectively. Hyperscale cloud services providers such as AWS, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, and Meta are increasing their service capabilities for supporting businesses.
RISING AWARENESS OF CARBON-NEUTRALITY
In Nordics, renewable energy sources such as wind, geothermal, and hydro are abundant. Operators are aligning their goals with the carbon-neutral goals of the respective countries. For instance, Green Mountain, a colocation operator, uses 100% of renewable energy in its data center operations.
Denmark is setting up energy islands to harness the resources in the Baltics and will be the first in the world. They will have the capacity to not only supply Denmark but also supply neighboring countries. Also, Nordic Governments are releasing policies relating to sustainability and energy reuse. For instance, the Swedish Government released energy policies such as the Electricity Certificate System to ensure energy is used through renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, hydro, or geothermal.
Tax Incentives Boosting Data Center Construction
Various countries are providing tax incentives for investors based locally or even globally, which will aid in constructing data centers. The Government of Denmark launched a Green Tax Reform and green R&D, which falls under the Danish Recovery and Resilience Plan, for which a USD 250 million investment is planned. Further, Norway has an abundance of hydropower supply; therefore, the government provides favorable and flexible tax rates on the consumed electricity to the industries which are energy intensive.
