Climate Neutrality in Cities and Municipalities - CO2-Neutral Neighborhood Concepts, Microgrids and Coupling of Sectors

The smarter E Podcast Episode 25 | November 05, 2020 | Language: German

Cities and municipalities, in short all urban areas, are responsible for a large part of global emissions. They therefore play a central role in implementing the energy turnaround towards climate neutrality.

Dr. Norbert Reuter, Managing Director of Stadtwerke Konstanz (SWK)

However, many cities and municipalities are at a standstill in their efforts to achieve their sustainability goals and the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. What is preventing them from doing so and what solutions are available for an efficient, decarbonized and sustainable energy supply?

We will be discussing this with Dr. Norbert Reuter, Managing Director of Stadtwerke Konstanz (SWK).
