Goal
"Unsere Mission: Gemeinsam die Energiewende vor Ort umsetzen Unter dem Dach der Bürgerwerke schließen sich Energiebürger zusammen, um als starke Gemeinschaft Projekte umzusetzen, die für den Einzelnen vor Ort nicht möglich sind. Gemeinsam treiben wir die Energiewende in Bürgerhand noch wirksamer voran. Die Bürgerwerke bündeln die Stromerzeugung aus Bürgerenergieanlagen, damit wir Bürger uns unabhängig von Energiekonzernen mit Bürgerstrom versorgen können. So schließen wir regionale Kreisläufe und die Wertschöpfung verbleibt vor Ort." (Translation: Our mission: Implementing the energy transition locally together Under the umbrella of Bürgerwerke, energy citizens join together as a strong community to implement projects that are not possible for individuals locally. Together, we are driving forward the energy transition in citizen hands even more effectively. Bürgerwerke bundles power generation from citizen energy plants so that we citizens can supply ourselves with citizen power independently of energy companies. In this way, we close regional loops and the added value remains locally.)
