Four cities and three provinces are included in the info-exchange project Quattro Pole Energy Tours of the city of Trier.
How can comfort of life that includes healthy materials, renewable energy and regional resources be made available and convenient for many people? Five years ago, the city of Trier has started the Energy Tours project. It involves monthly bus excursions to construction sites and innovative housing facilities. Not only future home builders, but also professionals from diverse branches have had the opportunity for an exchange of experiences while visiting exemplary construction projects and construction businesses. Subjects like construction biology, passive house standards, pellet heating, wood heating and solar energy were on the programme. Last year, the project was expanded into the young city network QuattroPole, including Trier, Luxembourg, Metz and Saarbrücken. Every city organised its own bilingual theme-tours which involved participants from all four cities. The costs were low: bilingual info-brochures and the bus tours.
