As the FLAP-D data centre hubs see constraints on renewable power, availability of land or lack of available skilled workforce are they under threat from emerging regions. Do we see higher degree of innovation in areas where you need to be innovative to create an edge when competing against the developed hubs? How are incentives and policies in the emerging markets in Europe like the Nordics or Iberia or smaller hubs in Germany, UK or France driving demand to scale easier, more sustainable and at lower costs?
The mature markets of Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris and Dublin (FLAP-D) continue to grow at pace, a high cost of entry and locational constraints such as access to power and network capacity can erode the returns when compared to emerging EMEA locations. As developments extend beyond these established Metros and away from city centre locations, the risk profile changes and with it the appetite and opportunity for investment. In this presentation, Jacob Bond will explore the emerging European locations identified as the next hot-spots for Data Centre growth and how Operators and Investors are entering these new markets.
As part of his role as Lead Analyst in Europe for www.datacenterhawk.com Dan speaks to Olivier Micheli President & CEO at DATA4 Group regarding the Paris, Milan and Madrid Colocation Market together with their sustainability strategy.
