The expansion of photovoltaics in Germany has declined recently. Existing potentials are no longer exhausted and economic advantages resulting from energy self-consumption are largely unknown. At the same time, the good acceptance of solar power is threatened by an increase in the number of open-space photovoltaic systems shaping our landscape.
As one of twelve photovoltaic networks in Baden-Württemberg, „Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg“ unites the districts of Schwarzwald-Baar, Rottweil and Tuttlingen. The aim of the project is to improve the understanding of solar energy and to show: “Solar energy is still worthwhile”.
Motivational work encourages stakeholders to become multipliers for solar energy and to present creative approaches for new projects within the region. The program also includes round tables, public events and competitions. A special focus will lie on the following topics:
- Future prospects after the expiry of funding from the Renewable Energies Act
- Promotion of photovoltaic systems in agriculture
- Further training for the craft trades
- Compatibility of open-space photovoltaic systems and nature conservation
