Sustainable datacenter

With its central location in the heart of Sweden, the region of Dalarna offers a cool favorable climate for green data centers and closeness to Stockholm and Arlanda International Airport. In 2017, Google acquired land in Dalarna for data center operations.The Swedish Land and Environment Court gave Google the go-ahead approval according to the company’s application for permission according to the Environmental Impact Assessment for a data center in June 2021. The consent does not mean that a decision to begin the site’s development has been taken, but it is considered significant for Google’s investment process in Dalarna.

EcoDataCenter, which was open for business in Falun, Dalarna, in October 2018, is the world’s first climate-positive data center. The buildings on the main site in Falun is largely built of wood and all the sites, including the Main site, the Arctic site and the city site are 100% powered by renewable electricity. EcoDataCenter plays a vital role in developing a sustainable and secure digitalization. The company has recently invested SEK 1 billion in building a new datacenter in Falun, Dalarna.
