Energy transition: Decentral – connected – together




Energieavantgarde Anhalt e.V.


To shape the energy transition in Saxony-Anhalt and find future-proof solutions for the region, Energieavantgarde Anhalt (EA) brought together citizens with private and public actors to create a living lab environment, where diverse energy-related topics are handled.


  • Broadened public engagement by linking climate protection to regional value creation
  • Involves a broad spectrum of actors in discussions on energy demand, decentralisation, energy markets, regulatory frameworks and more
  • Created regional energy system relying on 100% renewable energy in all sectors 

Main information:

The EA is an alliance of citizens, municipal and federal government actors, companies and research institutions that work on a sustainable transformation of the Anhalt-Bitterfeld-Wittenberg region. In a living lab environment, the EA pursues six projects that encourage an exchange of ideas and  innovations for the region’s energy transition. These projects are: Time-precise recording and presentation of energy flows in the region, a start-up competition, a ‘think factory’, an energy forum, an art space and a ‘salon’ to discuss the project’s activities. The EA is open to all actors, and public discourse is an important aspect of its success.
