Energiedorf Ebbinghof

Ebbinghof – The first bioenergy village in North Rine-Westphalia. By Lina Hartwieg. In German

The world’s thirst for energy is rising but the fossil energy sources are running dry. The time has come to rethink. Ebbinghof by Schmallenberg, a small village in the Hochsauerland, already did rethink the energy issue and implemented an energy concept for the future. Since 2009 the village supplies itself 100 percent with heat energy and power. Instead of oil, gas and nuclear power they use renewable energy resources, from the region: Sun, wind and dung. Every little bit counts and above all it saves energy.
