The guideline will be handed over to the building owners when they purchase a land plot and will provide useful information on energy efficiency throughout the construction process. Starting with helpful explanations on the subject of climate protection and energy efficiency, information on exterior walls, windows, roof, and system technology, through to the correct selection of the electrical appliances to be used later, the guide covers a wide range of topics. Also, the guide deals with funding opportunities. "For me, this guide is a welcome tool for promoting the incentive for energy-efficient construction in rural areas," says Benkendorff.
"The local communities in the Herrstein-Rhaunen district usually do not have the financial means to create monetary incentives in new development areas. Nor does the integration of conditions in the development plans appear to be target-oriented at present, even though I would like to see this happen". The close cooperation with the Environmental Campus, which has been maintained for years, helps the community work out scientifically supported alternatives. VG-mayor Uwe Weber accepted the guideline gratefully for the municipality because the guideline can be transferred in the future to new building areas in the complete municipality and beyond. "The transferability was an important aspect of the guideline because if CO2 emissions are reduced in the municipality, it is dependent on the participation of the population," said Weber. "We try to support the citizens in the best possible way, among other things with such guidelines," Weber continues.
