Verne Global owns and operates a data centre campus in Keflavik, Iceland. This location was strategically chosen to revolutionise data by directly addressing the problem–the power source.
We offer data centre decision makers a 100% carbon neutral and affordable power solution that has unparalleled pricing predictability, a range of server density options and efficiency without extra expense, using natural cooling. Our customers range in size from those requiring multi-kilowatts to multi-megawatts. Based in the United Kingdom, Verne Global is led by an experienced team with proven success in the data centre industry.
Verne Global’s mission is to develop and operate data centres in optimised geographic areas that offer organisations 100% renewable power without a price premium. Recognised at Rio+20 as a top sustainable solution by the Sustainia Awards, a body run by high-profile political figures including Arnold Schwarzenegger and European Commissioner for Climate Action Connie Hedegaard, Verne Global is leading the IT industry in connecting sustainability with global policy.
At this year’s Sustainable Innovation Expo alongside the Global Ministerial Environment Forum at the United Nations office in Nairobi, Verne Global will be led a workshop discussing ways in which organisations can reduce the impact that data centres are having on the environment. Governments, private companies and public organisations of all sizes are generating exponential amounts of data and the data centres needed to support this growth are using increasing and often unsustainable amounts of energy. Verne Global can help organisations ensure that their data centre energy use does not harm the environment.
Verne Global’s flagship data centre, located on the former NATO Command Centre in Keflavik, Iceland, is the world’s first carbon neutral facility and the only data centre that uses primary electricity generated entirely by renewable power, both geothermal and hydroelectric. Verne Global now provides the blueprint for how the industry can support unprecedented demand while mitigating damage to the environment.

World class data
storage in Iceland - Verne Global
Verne Global owns and operates a data centre campus in Keflavik, Iceland, and offers 100 per cent carbon neutral and affordable power solutions through a range of server density options and energy efficient techniques. The founding and development of Verne Global was a story of solving many of the problems that bedevil data storage; with renewable power options across a multitude of countries, the team behind the company was inspired to choose Iceland as their base. Lisa Rhodes tells how this came about.
Lead the Way to
All the world’s data – most of which is stored on servers, usually in data centres – requires a tremendous amount of uninterrupted power to support it. If the majority of energy required to support this boom continues to be drawn from fossil fuel-powered girds, much as it is today, not only will there be environmental consequences, but we could also reach a situation where power supplies simply can’t match demand.
