The Niobrara Data Center Energy Park project in Colorado will be the first data center to be fully self-contained with its own self-generated energy production facility. The proposed $4.2 billion project was recently approved by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission.

“Because the Niobrara Data Center Energy Park is self-sufficient, it means a more secure data center without the power outages,” Erik Mitisek, CEO of the Colorado Technology Association. “The project takes into account all available renewable resources, including wind, solar and natural gas, maximizing both the financial and environmental impact to the purchaser.”
