Speed-up Energy-Transition Korbach

Coordinator: Dr. Christina Sager-Klauß

Small and medium sized cities and communities face the challenges of having to provide all communal services with a limited staff of diverse competences. Tasks outside the scope of mandatory municipal duties are rarely pursued with full consistency, even when they involve key sustainability and future issues.

Municipal heat planning provides the guardrails for urban development and sustainable transformation of infrastructures for the energy transition in cities in rural areas. Roles and focal points for action are defined and projects prioritized on the basis of the variety of problems addressed. The political anchoring and the involvement of the local population are the basis for the implementation in practice.

The project serves this process by providing a sound data basis and potential analysis to base future concepts and strategies upon.

Through W4RES, SPEED-UP ENERGY-TRANSITION Korbach (SET-Korbach) is getting support to develop an action plan for the heating & cooling transition.
