The Energy Caravan: A highly effective campaign for municipalities of all sizes!

The energy consulting campaign to increase the renovation rate of the private building stock continues to be a success. At the beginning of March, the municipal council of Riegel am Kaiserstuhl (DE) unanimously passed a resolution to implement the Energy Caravan as a climate action measure. Shortly before that, the first campaign in the state capital Munich (DE) - in the Österreicher-Viertel in the Laim-Obermenzing district - came to an end. This confirms once again that the neighbourhood approach of the campaign enables implementation in cities and towns of any size, be it just over 4,000 or 1.5 million inhabitants.

Both Energy Caravan municipalities have decided to set an example in climate action in order to become active for their citizens, especially in these difficult times. The first Munich Energy Caravan achieved the highest absolute number of consultations of all campaigns carried out so far. With the tailwind of this success, further campaign implementations are already being planned for 2023 and the following years.

The cooperation project of the two non-profit associations Climate Alliance and fesa is also increasingly being requested by municipal representatives to include the Energy Caravan as a highly effective measure in the municipal climate action concepts. In the meantime, the campaign has also become part of the German publication "Praxisleitfaden Kommunaler Klimaschutz" (Practical Guide to Municipal Climate Protection) and is available for the implementation of measures such as strategic heat planning, as an information campaign for citizens and for the use of renewable energies.
