DescriptionTransarctic submarine cable routes will offer groundbreaking low round-trip times between Europe and Asia, potentially jeopardizing global traffic patterns and creating new digital trade routes up in the high north. Combined with surplus green energy, natural cooling and hence energy reuse potential, we may face a strategic shift in what region, from now on and most affordably and most climate friendly, should produce our energy consuming digital services. Move data, not power! But not least, transarctic cables opens up for completely new research and monitoring services for our community.
