Concept on Energy and Climate Protection „Lahn-Dill-Kreis“: Council of experts discussed the draft of the catalogue of measures

On March 12, 2015 the council of experts met for the second time to continue the further development of the concept on energy and climate protection of “Lahn-Dill-Kreis” (“Lahn-Dill county”).

The committee’s task is to discuss potentials and possibilities to reach the energy policy objectives of “Lahn-Dill-Kreis” and to engage the relevant stakeholders for the implementation of appropriate measures.

Mr. Gräff of “INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT” and Mr. Werner of “Institut Wohnen und Umwelt” presented the project’s state and the interim results. For example they informed about the energy and CO2 -emission balance and characteristics of buildings. Furthermore local heat characteristics for individual municipalities of “Lahn-Dill-Kreis” were discussed and explained. This municipal component, which is integrated in the energy and climate protection concept, is the basis for the further development of measures to implement the climate objectives.

In the following workshop phase, the experts discussed the measures, which are based on the action programme of climate protection and the national action plan for energy efficiency. The main topics were: municipal energy management, energy efficiency in private households, in trade and industry as well as stakeholder activation and participation. So the participants had the possibility to discuss the presented measures and to suggest additional measures.

The “1. Kreisbeigeordnete” (Lead representative of the county) Mr. Schreiber promised that the energy and climate protection concept will incorporate the meeting’s results.
