Ultralow carbon foot-print

The energy in Norway is almost exclusively produced from hydropower plants – making it clean, green and guaranteed to boost your sustainability credentials.

For DC operators we are offering: 

  • Sites connected to hydropower production feed with strongest possible grid connection
  • Norway is Europe’s leading producer of hydropower
  • Norwegian hydropower is the cleanest in the world
  • Hydropower will remain the most important source of renewable energy (IEA)
  • Norway’s continuity of energy supply is close to 99.99%.

Strong grid connection and proximity to hydropower production provides for dual feed of electrical power. This gives your data center access to an extremely stable source of renewable power.
