  11. 11. Study of Energy Agency Freiburg§  Sectors covered: private household, small scaleindustries, trade and services, industry, energyconversion (related to 2010), transport sector excluded§  Freiburg and surrounding districts „Emmendingen“(680 km2) and „Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald“ (1380 km2)§  Renewables: wind energy, hydro power, photovoltaics,solar thermal energy, geothermal energy, biomass(biogas), wood, saving of energy§  Target: technical/economical overall potential (includingalready exploited potential)§  Specification of upper and lower potential11Source: Energieagentur Regio Freiburg
  12. 12. 100% Renewables in the region?12Source:EnergieagenturRegio Freiburg
  13. 13. Results§  Energy supply by 100% in the region possible – at least 50%energy savings required§  Biggest potential at electricity sector: wind and photovoltaics§  Biggest potential at heating sector: biomass, solar thermal energy§  100% goal for „electricity“ easier than for „heating“§  Strategy for matching renewable energy production andconsumption (smart grid, storage)§  Big free potentials (80-90%) besides hydropower, biomass andwood§  For development of potentials investments of approx. 15 billions €are necessary: 3 billion € for renewables, 12 billion € forrefurbishment of residential buildings (annual energy costs for theregion are approx. 0.9 billion €/a)13Source: Energieagentur Regio Freiburg
  14. 14. Challenges§  Transport sector and transport concepts§  Heating and cooling§  Storage of energy§  Match of production and consumption§  Commercialization§  Economic incentives, investments§  Regulational framework§  Sustainablity – balance between ecologic, economicand social aspects14
