About Us

The data center industry has become one of the most energy-consuming and environmentally challenging industries globally, with a higher CO2 footprint than the entire airline industry.

Our mission is to create and operate a data center platform that meets future technology demands sustainably.

Through years of extensive research, studies, and development in collaboration with well-known companies in IT-tech, renewable energy, district heating, municipalities, and real-estate, Green Edge Compute has developed the world’s most sustainable urban data center platform capable of generating massive CO2 savings.

A Nordic Position

Our first 4 MW data center, GEC ONE, located in the tech capital of Norway, Trondheim, opens this summer. The data center is developed in collaboration with the municipality of Trondheim and Statkraft Varme.

This is just the beginning, and we are moving fast. In our first phase, we aim to build a network of 12 data centers with a total capacity of 25 MW in the most populated Nordic cities.

What people say about us

"Trondheim municipality has a collaboration agreement to develop a green and sustainable data center in Sluppen, Trondheim. Sluppen is one of Trondheim’s large developmental urban areas, quickly transforming into a sustainable, zero-emission district for private sector companies, public sector organizations, and private residences. Collaborating with innovative companies such as Green Edge Compute will help us realize our ambitious sustainability goals.”
– Kristian Dahlberg Hauge, Municipal Executive in Trondheim.

“Green Edge Compute accommodates three global trends. First, they focus on sustainability throughout the entire value chain, not only on renewable energy and energy efficiency but also on utilizing excess heat generated from data centers. Second, they enable Edge Computing. Certain applications require computing power and server capacity in close proximity to the end-user, and we will see several smaller, urban data centers being developed in addition to large-scale data centers in more remote areas. And third, they focus on building ecosystems and understand that partnering with IT, energy, and real-estate players is required for developing data centers that work well in a circular economy.”

Benedicte Fasmer Waaler, Senior Advisor in Innovation Norway.

“The need for low latency and energy re-usage made Green Edge Compute an interesting partner for the +CityxChange project in Sluppen, Trondheim. They are offering a full-worthy sustainable data center with the advantage of low latency by setting up the data center in an urban area.”

– Bjørn Villa, IT Manager in Trondheim municipality.

“We are excited about the fact that Green Edge Compute develops an efficient data center concept where you can utilize excess heat. As a district heating system operator, we want to accommodate the efficient utilization of a city’s energy resources. The collaboration with Green Edge Compute exemplifies this ambition.”

– Andreas Stokke, VP Head of Portfolio & Strategy in Statkraft Varme.
