The session presented the Climate Protection Planner (CPP), a widespread municipal CO2 monitoring tool in Germany which measures the reduction of CO2 / greenhouse gas emissions on a yearly basis according to a standardized approach for municipalities.
Focus was placed on the planned application which should make regional expansion potentials for renewable energies (RE) transparent. The objective is to create an application which visualizes different regional (spatial) scenarios. This shall support climate protection / energy managers and decision-makers to stimulate discussions and exchange processes within regions, to create synergies between urbanized and surrounding rural territories, and if necessary, make municipal or regional decisions for the further expansion of RE.
