High up in Germany's north, North Frisia has not only a lot to offer in terms of tourism: As the cradle of wind energy in Germany, the district produces three times more energy from regenerative sources than it consumes itself - a large proportion of the plants are frequently regulated. The settlement of data centers would make better use of the sustainably produced energy.
Logistically, North Frisia is conveniently located for data centers: Germany's northernmost submarine cable hub is located at Sylt. Fiber optic lines from various providers run along the west coast of Schleswig-Holstein from Esbjerg in Denmark via Hamburg to Frankfurt.
Since 2001, the interdisciplinary team of the Business Development Agency North Frisia has been dealing with all issues relating to settlement, industrial estates, subsidy and business start-up advice and actively assists in establishing contacts with politics and administration, as well as with clubs, associations and chambers of trade.
