Wow. Who would have thought that volcanoes were useful for something other than delaying air travel?

There’s good and bad when it comes to all that geothermal activity in Iceland. Yes, the volcanos with unpronounceable names can spew ash and shut down air travel. But there’s also an abundance of electricity from geothermal power, which combined with hydrothermal power, means Iceland runs off of pretty much 100 percent clean energy. That’s the backbone for an entrepreneurial idea to create a green computing cloud courtesy of Icelandic startup Greenqloud.
