Location, Location, Location... & Power

Frankfurt is almost out of power, the "masterplan" in Frankfurt makes it difficult for operators to obtain building permits on existing sites. With the future Energy Efficiancy law operators will be forced to build where they can find consumers for their waste heat. This panel will discuss if

  • it is still viable to build in a metropolitan regions
  • the operators need to move to Tier II markets
  • the operator shoud stop building campusses if there are no opportunities for waste heat reuse
