One of the world’s largest markets - Ireland’s expanding data centre industry

Ireland is one of the world’s major data centre markets, with 70 operational Data Centres (circa 900MW) and a further 8 (circa 255MW) under construction.

In 2022-23 alone, there is a projected construction spend of €1.5 billion (Source: “Half yearly report (May 2021)” produced by BitPower Energy Solutions, Host in Ireland and Cornwall Insight).

As you can see, Ireland is one of the largest and most rapidly expanding global data centre markets. In fact, the Central Statistics Office (CSO) revealed that Ireland’s data centres accounted for almost 4,000 GWh in 2021, representing a 265% increase from that of 2015. From 2020-21 alone, this figure rose by 32%.
