The search for clean energy motivates them. Potentially bringing with them positive effects regarding business start-ups and the regions ability to restructure and develop.

It´s all about the need for power supply, and ultimately renewable energy.

Microsoft is not the only tech company thinking about alternatives and renewable energy. Both Google and Facebook have signed agreements ensuring access to electricity from Rogaland providing power to their facilities in Scandinavia and Europe.
