ICT is consuming an increasing share of the World´s electricity. As most of this electricity is generated from the burning of fossil fuels, ICT´s share of carbon emissions also shows a rising curve.
Large Data centers are heavy industrial scale facilities and require huge amounts of electricity. Norway ´s offer is unique in this context, not only presenting a 97% share of renewables in its power production but also foreseeing a significant surplus and extremely competitive price forecasts for the years to come. Long term power prices in Norway are expected to be the lowest in the Nordics, further boosted by a significant tax reduction from 2016.
Abundant, highly competitive and renewable power through a resilient, redundant grid represents a second to none proposal to the datacenters of the future.
