This work package focuses on conducting research into the factors that support and hinder efforts to improve energy efficiency in Moabit. Alongside technical solutions, the researchers are looking above all at socioeconomic potential and developing measurable indicators that will make it possible to compare the status quo in Moabit against international standards. They are using case studies to examine a) the inner-city manufacturing industry, and b) public (LED) lighting. The research findings will be presented on an interactive, web-based platform and also made available to the general public.
These challenges are being tackled jointly by RWTH Aachen, CHORA (TU Berlin), TU Munich, TNO from the Netherlands, and Ökotec.
