December 17, 2020

What does a Swedish data centre have to do with the energy transition?

The growing use of renewable energy places new demands on the electricity system’s balance between electricity demand and supply, due to the intermittent nature of renewable energy resources. But through frequency regulation, electricity consumers can contribute to the stability of the power grid.
