Western Norway's unique position.

Today, the datacenter industry represents 3% of the world’s total power consumption, comparatively equal to the entire UK, and its carbon footprint is as large as the entire aviation industry.

In Western Norway, there is an abundance of clean renewable hydroelectric power and an opportunity for datacenters to take advantage of enormous amounts of surplus power.

Connectivity with the rest of the world is also excellent, and in 2020 a new direct fiber connection (NO-UK Com) is planned to provide direct access from Western Norway to the UK. This will essentially make Norway a gateway between Scandinavia and the UK and US markets for datacenter to
datacenter communication.

Norway is currently in 2nd place on the Data Center Risk Index 2016, as an attractive and low-risk country to establish green datacenters.

Datacenters in Norway can utilize its cool climate, exceptional infrastructure, political stability and a high level of technological innovation.
