Why Kolos?

The most sustainable, secure, and innovative data center in the world

Sustainability

Powered by 100% renewable energy

Kolos Sustainability

​Kolos will be the largest green data center in the world, powered by 100% sustainable energy from hydropower and wind. As the world's leader in renewable energy with an abundance of green power at 105.5% capacity, Norway was the perfect choice for the location of the Kolos data center.

As data centers face increasing scrutiny for their heavy power consumption and large carbon footprint, Kolos will lead the sector's shift to green energy, helping companies and brands support the world’s efforts to transition to renewable energy.
