Information energy is shown here to have properties similar to those of dark energy. The energy associated with each information bit of the universe is found to be defined identically to the characteristic energy of a cosmological constant. Two independent methods are used to estimate the universe information content of 1091 bits, a value that provides an information energy total comparable to that of dark energy. Information energy is also found to have a significantly negative equation‐of‐state parameter, w < −0.4, and thus exerts a negative pressure, similar to dark energy.
