Why Finland – self-sufficient green energy

Why is Finland an excellent location for a data center?

Finland has moved to be completely self-sufficient in terms of its electricity demand, triggered by several global factors. But rather than stop there, Finland continues to expand its production of cheap green energy to fuel its expansion in the global market.
