Menon Economics have, on behalf of IKT-Norge, conducted an economic impact analysis of Green Mountains new data centre at the Heggvin site between Hamar and Elverum. The purpose of this study is to analyse the economic impact of the data centre on the regional and national economy.
The study gives a short overview of the current data centre industry in Norway and Hamar as an economic region, before presenting the results from the economic impact analysis measured both in the form of employment and as a contribution to GDP. At the end of the report, we briefly look at the potential that lies in using waste heat from the data centre at Heggvin.
