Energy, climate and the environment

A forward-looking policy for cities, towns and regions is based on sustainability. The BBSR engages in many ways in the field of energy, climate and the environment. In addition to empirical aspects, the institute also addresses planning and conceptual approaches. Its research programmes include ecological building, strategies for energy supplies in districts and schemes to adapt to climate change in urban and rural areas.
