The Energiewende and Tourism

RENEWS KOMPAKT Issue 45 / August 2019 - Renewable energy projects can be attractions themselves.

Renewable energy can be combined with recreational areas and tourism. In Germany, communities tran-sitioning from fossil-fuel extraction to renewables are showcasing their stories. In addition, revenue from renewable projects is used to finance tourist attractions. Most importantly, Energiewende projects can themselves become tourist attractions.

This paper was written for the LECo (Local Energy Communities) project funded by the Interreg Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme of the EU. See the project website for further information.
