Setting up a renewable energy visitor centre in Feldheim – Germany

RDP funding helped convert a disused building into an inspiring renewable energy visitor centre in Feldheim – Germany’s first village to be supplied with 100 % renewable energy.

Project summary: 

Feldheim is an energy self-sufficient village in Brandenburg, Germany. Households and companies are supplied with electricity and heat from their own wind energy and photovoltaic plants. Meanwhile, biogas plants are linked to a local heat and power grid.

RDP funding helped convert a disused building into a new centre to cater for the village’s  many visitors from around the world and provide information and training about innovative renewable energy. 

Project results: 

Feldheim has attracted hundreds of visitors from Germany, Europe, Japan, South Africa and New Zealand who are inspired by the new renewable energy technologies.

Approximately 3 500 visitors per year use the different information experiences on offer at the visitor’s centre.

The "New Energy Forum" contributes to establish Feldheim as a recognised educational location on renewable energy.
