Sheﬃeld City Region – the best choice Sheﬃeld City Region 6cks all the boxes for loca6ng datacentres !" CLIMATE Sheﬃeld City Region’s climate is just right. With a west to east wind for low cost year round cooling. !" POWER SCR is a net exporter of power and sits on the densest part of the UK high voltage network. Sheﬃeld City Region is evolving its renewables and green energy strategy informed by data centre requirements. Exis:ng surplus of power infrastructure built to serve steel industry available for planned data centre projects !" CONNECTIVITY Europe’s largest public funded ﬁbre altnet, Digital Region provides private dark ﬁbre backbone, and the central UK loca:on reaches all major nodes. !" SITES Thanks to its industrial heritage, low cost sites are plen:ful in SCR. TCDC have evaluated all suitable sites in the SCR in conjunc:on with local authori:es and its consor:um !" RENEWABLES SCR has a strong renewable energy track record and has natural legacy to host large scale renewable energy infrastructure including wind farm, biomass, solar PV and heat reten:on networks
