Energia, which is owned by US-based I Squared Capital, is considering the construction of a major data centre complex beside its neighbouring Dublin power stations that would draw electricity from the plants.

Energia’s Huntstown Power Station company has been liaising with An Bord Pleanála regarding the construction of a significant substation at Huntstown that would form part of the data centre plan. An Bord Pleanála has just determined that the substation should be considered a strategic infrastructure development.

The Energia firm is also eyeing the construction of three to four data centre buildings extending over 100,000 sq m (1.07 million sq ft).
