  3. 3. Climate action concept Objective: climate protection 0 500 1000 1500 2000 2500 Status 1992 Scenario 2010 Energy Traffic Energy + 6% - 25% Traffic and Energy Target 2010 Target: CO 2 -Reduction by Traffic in 1,000 tons CO2 equiv. p.a. Freiburg CO2 emissions Traffic - 5% Energy Interim Statement2003
  4. 4. Traffic public transport lines in the Freiburg area: 3,000 km (2003) Fields of action (A)
  5. 5. Energy Sustainable Energy Supply cessation of nuclear energy – climate protection Energy saving * Thermal insulation * Low energy construction * Power saving Renewable Energies *Solar energy *Biomass *Hydro-power *Wind-power *Geothermal energy Efficient Technologies * Co-generation of power and heat * CHP * District heating Goals Fields of action (B)
  6. 6. Advanced low-energy construction (NEH) Energy saving <ul><li>Max. energy consumption: 60 kWh/m² p.a. </li></ul><ul><li>Environmental standard as condition of real estate sales contracts </li></ul><ul><li>Two entire new districts with low energy construction (Rieselfeld and Vauban) </li></ul>Roof insulation (20 to 30 cm) Wall insulation basement ceiling insulation Triple glazed windows
  7. 7. Co-generation and district heating Efficient technologies Balance 1993 2003 Production of electrictiy ca. 3% ca.52% Nuclear power ca. 60% ca.30% CO 2 -Reduction ca.11% combined heat and power generation
  8. 8. <ul><li>Solar energy </li></ul><ul><li>Biomass </li></ul><ul><li>Hydropower </li></ul><ul><li>Wind power </li></ul><ul><li>Council decision (2004) : 10% electricity from renewables by 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Currently: 4% </li></ul>Renewable energies
  9. 9. Solar energy Renewable energies
