In the region around Waldmünchen energy pioneers have been developing for years, and now the concentrated know-how of these energy enterprises is a real benefit for the Engineer's school Waldmünchen.
The bioenergy village Schäferei
The bioenergy village Schäferei is unique in the district of Cham. The entire village as well as the neighbouring village Kümmersmühle are provided with CO2-neutral thermal energy from two biogas plants.
Compost plant in Moosdorf of the company BIOmethan
The company has developed a biogas plant on a dry basis and is operating it with great success.
Biomass heating plant “Bömerwald-Wärme” in Waldmünchen
Another major cmponent for the energy region is the biomass heating plant Böhmerwald-Wärme in Waldmünchen. The acting prime minister of Bavaria, Horst Seehofer, put the foundation stone for the new plant in 2009.
In recent years the municipal area Waldmünchen has consistently focused on the reduction of energy consumption and the production of renewable energies. Waldmünchen is therefore also a good example for the renovation of public buildings such as the innovative energy-saving renovation of the primary school.
Due to the active and open-minded citizens towards renewable energy, Waldmünchen could generate so far over 75 % of its demand for electricity itself.
