Media release on the recharge.green project: results and conference
(21.05.2015) The Alps offer great potential for renewable energy production. But this simultaneously increases the pressure on nature. The partners in the international recharge.green project have found ways to ensure this balancing act succeeds. They will be presenting their results at the final conference to be held on 20-21 May 2015 in Sonthofen, Germany.
(25.10.2013) The Alps have great renewable energy potential. At the same time, however, this increases the pressures on Alpine nature. When should an area be used for power generation? When is maintaining biodiversity more important? Answers to these questions will be debated at an international conference on 12 and 13 November 2013 in Brig, Switzerland.
(18.12.2012) Discussions about the energy transition continue apace worldwide. Wind, water, sun and wood are renewable resources that are all plentifully available in the Alpine regions. How can we meet the demand for renewable energies without at the same time damaging nature? This question is being addressed by 15 partners from six Alpine states in the just-launched recharge.green project. Together they are developing models to serve as a decision-making basis for politicians and energy producers.
