Google eyes UK for data centre
Tech giant Google has purchased a plot of land north of London which could become home to a new UK-based data centre.
If constructed, the site could provide thousands of data centre sector jobs, as well as renewable energy sector jobs, as the firm has pledged to power all their sites with renewable energy.
A Google spokesperson told City A.M.: “We have acquired a 33 acre property North of London for potential data centre development.
“While we do not have a confirmed timeline for development for the site, we want to ensure that we have the option to further grow, should our business demand it. We don’t expect to take any decision on this in the near future.”
