BARESUS started its cooperation in autumn 2010 - supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. We focus on the implementation of sustainable energy concepts on local level.
Our scientific focus is in particular on cross-border regions. We assume that the natural conditions and thereby the potentials for biomass, wind energy and PV are similar on both sides of the border. But there are differences in the socioeconomic, political and cultural frameworks. This situation offers chances to analyse the influence of the socioeconomic factors on the local transition to sustainable energy. Additionally, the comparison between different cross-border regions delivers important input to the support schemes on bilateral and international level.
Our network comprises experts in the fields of agronomy, forestry, ecology, landscape planning, GIS analyses, technological solutions, politics, socioeconomics, education and communication. To regional and local stakeholders in the cross-border regions between Germany and Poland, Latvia and Estonia, Sweden and Denmark we built up excellent contacts.
The network’s coordination office is located close to both, Berlin and the border to Poland: at the Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development. The University has a very distinctive profile dedicated to sustainable economic activity.
In future projects the BARESUS Research Network is strongly interested in both scientific and implementation projects. Therefore, we are still open for cooperation partners in various fields connected to the local transition to sustainable energies.
