Denmark is well on its way to redefine some of the rules for site location when tech giants are looking or the best spots for their new hyperscale data centers. There is a unique focus on sustainability and renewable energy, plus a low carbon footprint because of the possibility to use data center waste heat for district heating. In Denmark, 64% of all homes are heated by district heating.
Facebook is building a 55,000 sqm data center (the third outside US) in Odense and expects to be online in 2020.
Odense is an ideal place for a variety of companies within the data center value chain. Cool climate, access to renewable energy and security of supply – Denmark is at an electrical node between the Nordic hydropower-based system and the continental thermal system – combined with a unique fiber optic infrastructure, access to a large talent pool of highly skilled workers, higher educations and the general focus on tech companies, makes Odense a great option for your Scandinavian business development.
