Background
Levels of Policies for Developing Renewable Energy
Global:

International Climate Protection Agreements, Global CO2Market, Technology Transfer, Carbon Bank,

European:

European Reduction Targets, EU Emissions Trading Scheme,


Energy Efficiency Directive,

National:

National Energy Taxes, Renewable Energy Acts (e.g.


German EEG)

Regional:

Municipal Energy Concepts, Political Goals (100%-RES, etc.), Level of


Implementation, Citizens Participation

1. Background
Transition of Energy System towards Renewable
Energy is Conducted Locally and Decentralized
Regions are forming the Level of Action
for the implementation of RE
(Implementer )
Regions can influence the framework for
implementation (Organizer)
Regions can set speed and direction of
transition (Pacemaker)
Regions are Pioneers, both on federal and
national level

100ee-Regions are Pioneers of a fundamental Replacement


of the traditional Energy System

3. International Transfer: structure of the Go 100% RERegions campaign


Targets:
This unique campaign builds on initiatives that
already take place on national, regional and local
level and ups the global discourse on renewable
energy towards 100% RE as the new normal
Establish a global network of 100% RE regions and
cities

7. Internationalization Twinning
Outcome

Formation of an international cooperation


network of Japanese and German Cities/Regions
supports political Stakeholders to find Partners on a local
and regional level.

strengthens pioneer regions and motivates others.

enables and encourages a transfer of knowledge and a


climate protection or 100% RE dialog for regions.
