We had a wonderful day on the 15th of June at Datasenterdagen 2022. Many thanks to Computerworld for a brilliant event! And finally, we could, with all humility, say: - We did it! Our data center cuts CO2 emissions by 1,000 tonnes a year.

Cuts 1500* tons of CO2 emissions every year
At Green Edge Compute, we have been waiting a long time for this day. Finally, SINTEF had the answer to our question. How sustainable is our first data center, GEC ONE, in Trondheim?
We were always confident that we would be able to deliver a green solution through close cooperation with important players such as municipalities, energy companies, district heating players, real estate developers, and tech companies.
The fact that we can cut CO2 emissions by over 1500* tonnes annually at a data center with a capacity of 2 MW is beyond all expectations. Our customers will reap the benefits!

The complete report from SINTEF will be available in a short time. Feel free to contact me if you want more information about the results.
Congratulations to Trondheim!
It is with great humility that I say: WE MADE IT !!!! At least until someone has proof of the opposite.
We set a goal already in 2017. To build the world's most sustainable data center that meets all the new technology needs of future smart cities !!! Congratulations to Trondheim!
You now have the latest server technology available locally while providing renewable heat to your city.
An exciting journey is ahead
Now Stavanger is next, and then a new green data center will be established in Oslo. The world's most sustainable data center is coming soon to a city near you.
