The goal is energy independence, climate protection and energy cost savings for municipalities. The energy revolution is the stated goal: the phasing out of fossil fuels brings independence, saves money on energy imports, reduces operating costs and CO2 emissions and creates jobs. A key measure of the energy transformation is the creation of local energy concepts. These concepts are an important planning and decision-making basis for the local level.
The modules of an energy concept may include: Assessment of energy flow in the municipality, the possible energy savings and eco-energy potential, the formulation of community goals for energy efficiency and renewable energy, the establishment of a municipal energy efficiency and renewable energy strategy, the planning of the implementation measures and the control and display the results of the implementation measures.
