Energy Master Plan
Description of Measure and Categorization
The Bregenz Energy Master Plan uses both the available data on energy consumption and production and information on the town's spatial structure. This enables the relevant authorities to analyse the energy efficiency of urban development projects based on specific indicators and themes and form a picture of the current status using various energy profiles. As a planning and monitoring instrument, the Energy Master Plan supports the implementation of energy-optimised, sustainable urban development and contributes to aligning existing instruments, operating principles and planning parameters for urban development with the tasks and challenges of Energieautonomie Vorarlberg 2050, the Vorarlberg regional policy for energy self-sufficiency. The master plan describes in detail a set of 20 indicators for every urban district. These range from population growth, residential and occupational density, basic services, good transport connections, distribution of energy sources and energy density to COs emissions. The indicators are clustered with the urban zone profiles. In spider diagrams they describe the status of each urban district in terms of building and settlement structure, technical energy and resource efficiency, mobility and basic service provision and provide comparisons with other urban districts or with specific target values. In terms of energy consumption, energy production and CO2 emissions, they report the level of achievement of Energieautonomie 2050 targets.
