Interconnected energy for Grevesmühlen

In a study, IKEM identifies ways to create an interconnected energy system in Grevesmühlen with a regional electricity tariff based on renewables.

Project

By 2050, the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern wants to source its entire energy supply from renewables. To achieve this goal, action must also be taken at the municipal level. The town of Grevesmühlen and the association “Grevesmühlen – Stadt ohne Watt” want to lead the way by developing a concept for connecting local renewable energy systems and setting up a regional green electricity tariff. The concept aims to ensure the energy-efficient use of existing and planned electricity production capacities.

In a study, IKEM examines the technical, legal and economic conditions for the implementation of the proposed energy system and a corresponding tariff system. Researchers will conduct a demand and market analysis as well as a site assessment, determine storage capacities and work out a framework for the electricity tariff and the layout of the overall system. The study also identifies funding opportunities for the development of the infrastructure.

Impact

The study came to the conclusion that the energy demands of Grevesmühlen can, in principle, be completely met by renewable energies. Representatives of the town handed over the study to the energy minister of the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in March 2015.
