Verne Global Datacenters for Forward Thinkers

  1. 1. So, Why is Iceland Ideal for Data Centers?
  2. 2. ABUNDANT POWER STABLE POWER Less than 10% of Iceland’s renewable energy capacity has been tapped to date. Nordics primary source of power is hydro- electric. Equally in Iceland, geothermal provides a similar power profile. SCALABLE POWER Iceland: Up to 2,000 MW of addiRonal renewable power being considered for development.
