Reducing CO2-emissions by developing an easy-to-handle, cost-effective, and modern energy monitoring for STARK III projects – that is the goal of the EMPOWER project in Saxony-Anhalt.

At the Import Workshop on June 4th, 2019, in Magdeburg, experts from Ireland, France, and Slovenia came together with local stakeholders to share their experience with similar systems and to give advice for the implementation process. Policy owners, energy experts, and representatives from regional municipalities discussed the chances and challenges that came with each of the presented Good Practices and drew inspiration for Saxony-Anhalt.

In addition to the technical details, there was a focus on the human side of the upcoming changes. Questions like “How can we involve future users in the process?” and “What will the support structure for those users need to look like?” were evaluated.

For Saxony-Anhalt, as well as for the whole EMPOWER project, the next step now lies in the elaboration of the Regional Action Plan which will include all the planned activities for phase 2 that are necessary to successfully and sustainably improve the policy instrument.
