Geothermal valve - Verne Global

Verne Global’s facility has been designed to fully utilise Iceland’s unique environmental power advantages: 100% powered by renewable energy resources and 100% cooled by the natural environment of Iceland, without the use of chillers or compressors.

All electricity comes from 100% renewable, geothermal and hydroelectric energy. Iceland is the only country in Western Europe that still has large indigenous amounts of competitively-priced hydroelectric and geothermal energy remaining to be harnessed.
