Town gets its heat from a data center

Architects in Norway are building an energy-positive town Lyseparken that will get its heat from the town’s data center. The Lyseparken data center is the pilot in The Spark project by architecture company Snøhetta and is estimated to be live by 2021. Data centers are traditionally large buildings that are located in remote areas because they occupy a lot of land. However new designs for smaller data centers are suitable for constructing in urban areas such as cities and towns. As well as enabling faster data transfer, urban data centers are an opportunity to make use of excess heat that these buildings produce.
