Esslingen Council aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 25 per cent by 2020. This can only be achieved if everybody plays their part – the council, the energy providers, businesses and private households.

Thanks to its participation in numerous projects, including photovoltaic roofs on schools, geothermal energy, and the Ecoprofit Program (Ecological Project For Integrated Environmental Technology), Esslingen has already won awards in two competitions – “Bundeshauptstadt Klimaschutz” (Climate Protection Capital) and “Climate Star”.

The Esslingen Energy Center makes saving energy simple. Experts explain how best to protect our climate. Every single one of us can make a difference!

The Esslingen Energy Center (Energiezentrum Esslingen – EZE) serves as a drop-in center for all citizens who want to protect the climate, save energy or use renewable energy. The climate is something that concerns us all.
