Duration: 11/2008 - 2/2011

Client: The Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development BBRS at Bonn

Researchers: Professor Dr.-Ing. Sabine Baumgart, Dipl.-Ing. Maik Teubner

Co-operation partner: Department of Utility Systems, Faculty of Spatial Planning: Professor Dr.-Ing. Hans-Peter Tietz, Dr.-Ing. Jörg Fromme, Dipl.-Ing. Tanja Hühner

Abstract: Outline of the client’s website (BBSR: www.bbrs.bund.de; 2011-07-04)

“Rising energy prices and the necessary adjustments and protective measures to address climate change, require an economically, socially and ecologically sound production of renewable energies. The research project analyses and evaluates the Energy Concept as an instrument to boost renewable energies at regional level. The potential of Regional Energy Concepts to influence stakeholders in the energy sector will be considered. These include consumers, investors and operators of energy conversion facilities and power grids. The coordination of spatial planning and energy concepts becomes increasingly important because the further production of energy from renewable sources impacts on land use patterns and (positively) affects the regional economy.” (Posche, Lars.
