Analysis and modelling across the EU-28 

     

The current and future energy consumption of data centers and in particular of cloud services in Europe, including their regional distribution will be assessed. The analysis also takes into account the changing structure of data centers in terms of size. On the one hand, there is a clear trend towards so-called central hyperscale data centers. On the other hand, it is assumed that trends such as edge and fog computing will also increase the number of small and decentralized locations.
