Berchtesgadener Land, Germany

  • slider

In 2001 the district Berchtesgadener Land in the south east of Germany set the target to cover its energy supply by 100% renewable energy by 2030. In 2012 the German think tank B.A.U.M. was charged to develop a roadmap including detailed analysis about the status quo and more detailed subgoals for 2030. These include targets for energy savings in the electricity and heat sector as well as targets for the share of renewables regarding the remaining energy demand in the electricity, heat and transport sector. By this means, the district aims to cut average CO2 emissions in half.

In 2013, the district council adopted unanimously the named targets and around 30 projects to pave the way so that the Berchtesgadener Land will be supplied with 100% renewable energy by 2030.
