Bürgerenergie in Australien: Neuer Hoffnungsträger trotz mangelnder politischer Unterstützung

Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Bei der jährlichen Verlosung der Green Globe Awards, dem Nachhaltigkeitspreis für innovative Projekte der Bundesstaatsregierung in New South Wales wurden im Oktober 2015 drei Bürgerenergieprojekte ausgezeichnet (NSW Government, 2015a). In der Kategorie Climate Change Leadership wurde die Tathra Community Solar Farm mit dem Preis ausgezeichnet. Hierbei handelt es sich um einen Solarpark, der von einer lokalen Non-Profit-Organisation gemeinsam mit der betroffenen Gemeinde initiiert wurde und durch Spenden finanziert ist (NSW Government, 2015b). Der Repower Shoalhaven Association, ein Solarenergieverein, der bereits drei durch Bürger finanzierte Solaranlagen entwickelt hat (NSW Government, 2015c), wurde der Award in der Kategorie Community Sustainability verliehen. In der Sparte Local Government wurde die Lismore City Council geehrt: eine Kommune, die es sich zum Ziel gesetzt hat, innerhalb der nächsten acht Jahre ihre gesamte Energie aus erneuerbaren Ressourcen zu gewinnen und dafür auch mit Bürgerenergieprojekten zusammenzuarbeiten (NSW Government, 2015d).
