Masterplan Data Center

Whether due to climate change, rising electricity costs or increasingly scarce building land - the data center industry is rapidly changing. This has also been recognized by the city of Frankfurt, which is home to around 60 company-independent data centers. With its new "Data Center Master Plan", the city intends to regulate the construction of new data centers more strictly in order to do equal justice to the data center industry and other sectors of the economy. In his keynote, Lars Reubekeul, Partner and Co-Head of Real Estate Germany at DLA Piper, will provide an overview of the new regulations in Frankfurt, their legal implications and possible future developments
