More money for the Oberland energy transition


The district will support the community foundation Energiewende Oberland with more money. However, the prerequisite is that the other circles involved also pull along.

The district will support the community foundation Energiewende Oberland with more money.

However, the prerequisite is that the other circles involved also pull along.

Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen - Filiz Cetin (SPD) did not agree with the agenda in the district committee meeting.

You see "no relevant reason" why points eight and nine should not be dealt with publicly, said the SPD parliamentary group spokeswoman and requested that they be moved to the public part.

"The topics are important and there is a lot of public interest behind them," said Cetin.

Transfer and innovation center will not remain a public point

At point nine, District Office department head Wolfgang Krause was skeptical.

This was about the establishment of a transfer and innovation center (TIZIO) in the district.

As reported, the cities of Bad Tölz, Geretsried and Wolfratshausen as well as the municipality of Eurasburg have applied to become the location of this university institution.

"It's about data from property owners, rent and other things," said Krause.

Treating this publicly is hardly possible.

The majority of the committee agreed.

The application for public treatment was rejected with 3:10 votes.

District gives more money for the EWO office

Things looked different on item eight of the agenda. The question of how much money the district will use to support the Oberland energy transition in the operation of the office should be discussed. This was last discussed in detail in the Environment Committee - not publicly, because there were also specific questions about employment contracts and the like, said District Administrator Josef Niedermaier (FW). Since the district committee was only concerned with the specific grant, “we can deal with it publicly,” said Krause.

The community foundation Energiewende Oberland (EWO) asked the four districts involved - in addition to Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen, Miesbach, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Weilheim-Schongau - to increase the annual subsidy for running the office.

The aim is to further expand the “neutral, competent advisory services on the subjects of the energy transition, energy saving, energy efficiency, renewable energies, sustainable mobility, climate protection and climate adaptation”, according to the application.

Originally, the EWO had applied for a grant of 80,000 euros per year and district - 40,000 euros more than now.

After consultation in the Environment Committee, however, a grant of 60,000 euros was now up for discussion - for a period of five years.

Greens would have liked more money for the EWO

Green group spokesman Klaus Koch struggled a little with the reduction. The EWO office and its advisory services are an "essential hub in order to achieve our goal of being energy self-sufficient by 2035," said Koch. Every euro invested here brings significantly more funds from funding programs back into the district. And the need for advice is enormous. “The 80,000 euros weren't proposed out of joke,” said Koch. “We could have stayed with it. That is the engine behind the energy transition. ”Alexander Müllejans (Greens) provided support. "If we want to advance the energy turnaround, we have bad cards without the EWO." The signal that the reduction of the subsidy will send to the outside world, "I consider fatal," said Müllejans.

The other three districts involved have yet to agree

Niedermaier did not want to leave it like that.

“We really pack a lot on the subsidy.

60,000 euros are quite a sum. ”Hubert Oberhauser (FW) also saw this as“ a strong sign ”.

The grant of 60,000 euros was decided against the vote of Thomas Holz (CSU).

However, the prerequisite is that the district councils of the other three districts also participate.
