Our Sustainable Approach

100% renewable energy sources

The electricity that powers our data centers only comes from 100% renewable sources energy.

Power Efficiency

Our natural air-cooling systems keep our data center facilities at the optimal temperature and humidity all while ensuring that energy use is minimized across our campuses.

The use of renewable energy and promoting alternatives to the fuel economy have been part of atNorth’s DNA since its founding in 2010.

Optimized Energy Efficiency

The heat generated in our data center facilities is used for house heating that passes on a big part of the electric energy that is used to power technology infrastructure as hot water that is used for central house heating systems. This increases the energy efficiency and lowers our customers TCO.
