23rd Day of Renewable Energies in Oederan: 28 April 2018!

Under the motto “knowledge is transfered best if practically applied”, operators of alternative energy plants open their doors on 28 April 2018. Interested visitors can get insights into the experiences with the current technology and its manifold possibilities. The focus is on solar thermal and photovoltaic systems, wind or hydroelectric power plants, biogas plants for heat and power generation, wood heating systems, models for rainwater and vegetable oil use, as well as solar architecture and improvements in energy efficiency. Further events, such as trade fairs or discussions, will also take place. This gives interested energy users an impression of the energy technology of the solar age.

New field trips scheduled!

Our project partners in Most are currently organizing new field trips for pupils and students on the topic of environment and coal.

The energy sources in the countries’ energy mix play an important role in the Czech-Saxon region. The aim of the project is to familiarize pupils and students with this topic and to improve their knowledge in the field of environmental protection.

The following field trips are scheduled:

  • 19 June 2018: Field trip “Recultivated sites of the coal basin around Most” (according to field trip plan II)
  • 20 June 2018: Demonstration project “Environmental measures for the extraction and treatment of brown coal”
  • 26 June 2018: Field trip “Recultivated sites of the coal basin around Most” (according to field trip plan II)
