Workshop - Energy and citizens' initiatives
This workshop was conducted with in the CABEE project.
Title: Energy- and citizens' initiatives
Location: Landratsamt Rosenheim (Germany)
Target audience: mainly SMEs
Number of participants: 19
Nineteen energy initiatives and enterprises came together to discuss feasible projects and workshops for the future. Four projects were generated to further sustainable and decentralized energy supply for the region. Those projects will benefit the region in different ways as they put the core points of sustainable development to real use.
In total four projects were discussed and submitted:
The first project will focus on local thermal-energy grids. Requirements and sensible boundary conditions will be gathered and developed. This goes down to the deepest possible level of a grid – a connection of single private households.
The second one addresses communities as well as the region. Public buildings will be evaluated on a large scale – comparable to Main Action 4.2 – in order to fulfill their purpose as role models.
Mobility is central to the third project, as it aims for raised usage of local traffic as well as reducing private traffic where possible.
The fourth and last project concentrates on stored, locally produced electricity in homes – thusly the own consumption can be increased and a swarm storage will be possible to decentralize electric energy production and storage.
