First Energy Caravan launched in Luxembourg
At the end of May, the first Energy Caravan in Luxembourg was launched in the municipality of Strassen with a kick-off event. In the following seven weeks, the local climate team will go from house to house in the selected neighbourhood and approach homeowners specifically to see if they would like to take advantage of a free initial energy consultation. The approach was announced by a personalised letter from the mayor, Nico Pundel. The campaign is organised by the municipal environmental advisor.
The involvement of the Strassen climate team is expected to result in a high number of consultations in the neighbourhood, which, according to experience, will lead to numerous energy-efficient renovation measures, including renewable energy supply. Luxembourgish municipal climate teams are made up of committed, voluntary citizens, comparable to municipal advisory boards in German cities and towns.
The municipal campaign was made possible by Pol Straus, coordinator of the Energy Caravan Climate Alliance Luxembourg. The project-related cooperation between Climate Alliance Luxembourg, Climate Alliance Europe and fesa e.V. has been running since May 2022. Further campaign implementations in Luxembourg are planned by the municipality of Betzdorf in autumn 2023 and the municipality of Mertzig in spring 2024. The offer is currently valid for all Luxembourg Climate Alliance members.
