Regional Energy Concept: Upper Carinthia

mecca supported the State of Carinthia in the creation of the Regional Energy Concept: Upper Carinthia. ┬áThe goal was to use spatial planning to lay the groundwork for addressing critical questions facing Carinthia’s energy future. This should provide the basis for energy security through increasing the energy independence of Carinthia while at the same time improving the ‘value-added’ aspect by focusing on regional power generation. As results are gathered, they should be used to develop a detailed energy concept that is inclusive of the communities and key stakeholders.
