Spain DC celebrates the creation of the Ministry of Digital Transformation in Spain.

The Spanish Association of Data Centers, known as Spain DC, has expressed its satisfaction with the recent creation of the Ministry of Digital Transformation for the new term in Spain. This institution, which represents the interests of the data center sector, sees this government initiative as a key opportunity to drive the country’s digitalization.

Manuel Giménez, CEO of Spain DC, has emphasized the importance of having a robust and efficient data center industry for the development of the digital economy in Spain. “To achieve a successful digital transformation, it is crucial to work collaboratively with the various administrations. The creation of this new ministry represents a window of opportunity to establish and strengthen public-private collaboration,” said Giménez.

In the coming days, Spain DC plans to request a meeting with José Luis Escrivá, the minister assigned to the new department, to discuss mutual interests such as sectoral regulation, energy efficiency, and talent management necessary to drive this sector.

The latest report prepared by Spain DC reveals that the Data Center industry is expected to attract around 8 billion euros in direct investments to Spain by 2026. This would represent a significant increase in the current installed capacity and would have a considerable impact on the country’s GDP, estimated at nearly 60 billion euros.

The report also highlights the need to ensure adequate access to energy and streamline administrative procedures for the relevant authorizations. These measures are essential, as the data center sector is experiencing rapid growth in Spain, requiring a favorable regulatory and operational framework for its development and expansion.

The creation of the Ministry of Digital Transformation is a step forward in consolidating Spain as a leading technological hub. With the support and cooperation between the public and private sectors, the country is poised to lead the digital revolution in the European and international landscape.
