Balancing Alpine energy and nature
The Alps have great potential for the use of renewable energy. Thereby they can make a valuable contribution to mitigating climate change. This, however, means increasing pressures on nature. What could be the impact of such changes on the habitats of animals and plants? How do they affect land use and soil quality? How much renewable energy can reasonably be used? CIPRA played a leading role in the development of the recharge.green project and is now responsible for public relations as well as organising both the mid-term and the concluding conferences. More

Seven partners in European mountain areas – among them CIPRA – work together, learn together and jointly improve their strategies and construction methods. More
