Short description

In its strategy in the field of action of “Natur.Wert.Pongau” the local working group (LWG) Lebens.Wert.Pongau defined the increase in the level of information on renewable energy for private persons and tradesmen (building and living with energy and the environment in mind) as well as the increase in energy competence and energy use in all areas of renewable energy sources and resources. The project therefore contributes directly and immediately to reaching the goal in the framework of the LWG's local development strategy. In its strategy the LWG Pongau also plans participation in a cooperation project on “Renewable Energy”.

Point of departure

With their application the LWG Tennengau and the LWG Lebens.Wert.Pongau positioned the energy issue, in particular renewable energy, in the relevant development strategies. The objective which both regions pursue is to make use of their regional resources to an even greater extent in the future. In both regions the awareness among people and the economy for all aspects of the topics “Renewable Energy” and “Energy Saving” (bioenergy, biomass, geothermal energy, solar energy, water, wind energy) is to be strengthened.

Targets and target groups

*Increasing the level of information on renewable sources of energy in private persons and tradesmen as well as in the communities.
*Reducing energy consumption in the regions
*Creating suitable counselling services
*Sensitising and qualifying planners and the small and medium-sized enterprises in the region to sustainable building and renewable energy
*Increasing the use and the efficiency of regional raw materials
*Reducing energy consumption
