Now the Icelandic city of Keflavik has announced plans to construct the world's first zero-carbon data center from a set of 37 prefabricated components. The project, commissioned by UK start-up Verne Global (a data hosting company), will comprise 5,400 sq ft and will be powered completely by geothermal and hydroelectric power.
