Data Center Impacts

Economic Consulting Team

Oxford Economics

Oxford Economics is a global leader in data center economic impact studies and analysis. Beginning with an original evaluation and community-level assessment of Google’s six US data centers in 2016, Oxford Economics expanded its modeling capabilities and analysis to cover impacts of current and proposed data centers across the world—including multiple locations in South America, the EU and Asia. We specialize in detailing economic impact effects, as well as socioeconomic benefits that accrue to cities, regions and countries as a result of investment, buildout and operation of data centers. Through a more comprehensive approach to quantify and evaluate economic outcomes—often combined with illustrative case studies—Oxford Economics showcases how data centers or data center investment positively transform economies.
