Update of the Integrated Climate Protection Concept (KSK) of the Regionalverband Saarbrücken


The current integrated climate protection concept (KSK) for the area of the Regionalverband Saarbrücken was created in 2014 as part of the program for the National Climate Protection Initiative "Directive for the Promotion of Climate Protection Projects in Social, Cultural and Public Institutions". As the integrated climate protection concept in its current version is older than 36 months, it needs to be updated.

IZES gGmbH was then the official contractor for the KSK and has now been commissioned by the Regionalverband Saarbrücken to update the integrated climate protection concept togehter with ARGE SOLAR e.V.

Project objective

Objectives of the update of the climate protection concept are thus, in addition to the analysis and evaluation of the initial energy situation, to develop the measures for the area of Regionalverband Saarbrücken, with the aim of achieving a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions by the year 2050. 

The starting point is the preparation of an energy and CO2-balance and the evaluation of the implementation of the current climate protection concept. Afterwards a reference scenario and a climate protection scenario will be modelled.

The focus of the update is the elaboration of implementation-oriented measures in various fields of action. The development of the measures is participation-oriented. Workshops with different local and regional actors are planned.
