Energy & Sustainability Working Group
Green power, low latency networks and one of Europe’s most reliable power grids are just some of the reasons why global tech giants and international colocation operators have chosen Denmark for their data center operations.
The Danish economy can greatly benefit from world-class digital infrastructure connecting to global economies. Denmark should therefore be at the very forefront in rolling out digital infrastructure and integrating them into our energy systems for optimal efficiency.
A strong data center ecosystem, backed by the right legal frameworks, can greatly benefit the Danish society, spurring growth opportunities within education, infrastructure, international collaboration, export, and the green transition.
A good investment climate requires a well-considered, balanced and government-wide long-term policy. The national interest of a strong data center sector goes beyond local problems and spatial planning, which requires an integrated policy approach. This can be achieved by a coordinated effort between the industry and government stakeholders.
DDI is committed to support the growth of the domestic sector, by organizing a structural stakeholder consultation between the government and the industry, to identify bottlenecks and develop policies to address these. The Danish digital infrastructure sector plays a crucial role in the economy but is often overlooked by the government and the public.
DDI will support the industry, by highlighting the economic impact and importance of digital infrastructure for the economy, ensuring that Denmark stays competitive regarding digital infrastructure legislation impacting sustainability and operational costs related to energy prices and taxes.
