100% Renewable Energy Goal

100% Renewable Energy Town by 2020

Location:

Morbach, Germany

Summary:

The community of Morbach, with a population of 11,000, aims to achieve getting all its energy from renewable resources by 2020, and to reduce their CO2 emissons by 50% by that time.

On the U.S. ammunition depot, Rapperath/Wenigerath, there are 14 windmills, solar PV installed on 2.9 acres, and a biogas plant installed. The electricity is fed to the grid, and the heat is used to supply heat to a connected business park. 

This Energy Landscape is  a new tourist attraction, which was visited last year by more than 20,000 people from 70 countries around the world.
