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.
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.
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.
