"We look forward to partnering with governments and other stakeholders in the months and years ahead," Google CEO Sundar Pichai wrote in a blog post. "Together, we can make sure every European benefits from a strong and sustainable digital economy."

He said the data center in Finland "serves as a model of sustainability and energy efficiency for all of our data centers."
