News from the Ministry
“Norway has a unique foundation for becoming the world's most attractive data center nation. We have a surplus of renewable energy, low electricity prices, good digital infrastructure and a cool climate. The Government is now strengthening its commitment to a sustainable data center industry. This will create many new jobs in the regions and help develop new digital services throughout the country," says Minister of Regional Development and Digitalisation Linda Hofstad Helleland.
The Government’s ambition is for Norway to play a pioneering role in the development of a green, circular economy that makes better, more efficient use of resources. Norway will play this role by further developing policy and policy instruments both nationally and in cooperation with the EU, to develop a framework for value creation and green competitiveness in Norway.
