Kreisenenergiewerke Augsburg external technical support during the founding phase
For the initial phase of the new Kreisenergiewerke (district energy plants) company, it is planned to commission bifa Umweltinstitut GmbH not only to provide external technical support but also assistance with the corporate organisation and the management, in order to ensure efficient implementation of the necessary actions and to shorten the startup phase. A concept developed by bifa is to be implemented in two phases.
The objective of the first phase with the foundation of the Kreisenergiewerke as a GmbH (plc) is to draw up a business plan on the basis of an analysis of action options for the district energy plants. The methodological approach ranges from discussions with the mayors and local authority representatives of the administrative district and many other stakeholders in the areas of
energy generation, energy distribution and energy use in Augsburg
administrative district through to an energy survey of the district's properties. An expert advisory committee with representatives of the local authorities and political groupings in the district assembly will provide support and contribute during the first phase. An important aspect here is to ensure that the newly founded Kreisenergiewerke find their place within the regional climate protection concept of the economic region. A central aspect is the development of specific projects and implementation possibilities. The results of this analysis, the discussions and the development of projects will then be incorporated in the business plant for the Kreisenergiewerke. At the same time the next steps will already be stated in more specific terms and in implementable projects (among other things from the ideas of the municipal partners) and will point out possible funding options. Equally, participation models will be drawn up for the respective project approaches.
In Phase 2 the developed projects will then be further developed and implemented with the relevant players.
