On 14. June 22, Climate Protection Agency Hannover Region will play the simulation game Vision:En 2040 in person with the citizen of Ronnenberg to continue the conversation about the environmental-friendly local energy transition.

The expansion of renewable energies in the municipalities is important. To strengthen acceptance and support fair dialogue on the ground, the digital simulation game "Vision:En 2040 - Our ideas, our energy transition" was developed. With funding from the Lower Saxony Ministry of the Environment, a project team from Leibniz Universität Hannover has programmed software. This makes it possible to simulate an energy supply from renewables - wind and solar energy - for a municipality.

As part of the EU project IRENES, citizens from Ronnenberg are now invited to participate. The event will take place on Tuesday, 14 June from 5.30 to 8.30 p.m. at the Marie Curie School, Am Sportpark 1, admission is from 5 p.m. onwards. Mayor Marlo Kratzke and Anja Floetenmeyer-Woltmann from the Climate Protection Agency Hannover Region will be in charge of the welcoming.

They are looking forward to seeing people from all age groups in Ronnenberg to experience how the energy transition can be shaped locally.

Registrations with address details will be accepted by e-mail [email protected] until 9.6. The number of participants is limited. If there are too many If there are too many registrations, there will be a draw.

About the simulation game:

"Vision:En 2040" is based on geodata from Leibniz Universität Hannover. These have recently been made available online for the site planning of wind energy and solar plants. The results of the researchers' nationwide area analyses were presented by IP SYSCON GmbH in the programming for the respective city or municipality area. The practical partner is the Hannover Region Climate Protection Agency.

In the simulation game, energy systems are placed on the designated areas in small groups. Wind turbines, ground-mounted PV systems and roof-mounted PV systems can be selected. The potential energy yields for the renewable energy mix can then be determined and compared with the energy yields for the entire region. the electricity yield target of the municipality. Afterwards, the results worked out in small will then be discussed in small groups.
