Project coordination:  University of Kassel, Department Energy Economics

Collaborators: IdE Institute decentralized energy technologies 

Commissioned bycdw Foundation and Ministry of Economics, Energy, Transport and Regional Development of the Federal State of Hesse (HMWELV)

Summary: The project „process design of the energy transition in North Hesse“ is part of the larger programme “Future showcase of the energy transition in Hesse”, whose aim is to support the regions of Hesse on the road to a 100 percent renewable energy energy system.

The project connects agents within and across districts and municipalities while supporting their set targets, plans and implementation efforts. Information and helpful tools, for instance a regional benchmarking-tool, are provided to all local key actors, such as majors, climate protection managers and departments relevant to the prevention of climate change. Especially the transfer of knowledge and the exchange of experiences between regions and municipalities, but also nationwide, shall thus be reinforced. Establishing competences and resources, for example by assisting the submission process of funding applications, is also one main target and shall insure an increase in implementation activities.
