Abstract: Die regionale Ebene hat viele Potenziale, um die Nutzung erneuerbarer Energien voranzutreiben. Eine Untersuchung in der Energieregion Lausitz zeigt, welche Faktoren hemmend oder fördernd wirken und wo die Akteure einer Region ansetzen können.
Which factors shape the development of renewable energies on a regional level? This article argues that supra-regional conditions, such as law and financial support, are only one part of the story. Presented are the results of a case study in the east German region of Lower Lusatia, a traditional energy region, where lignite surface mining is still an important economic factor. The case study focused on the views of regional actors in the field of renewable energies. From interviews with these actors, it became apparent that renewable energy activities are supported, or hindered, by: the involvement of regional pioneers and supporters, the regional mentality, the initial physical and socioeconomic situations, the availability of relevant information and know-how, regionally adjusted models and concepts, and regional cooperation. A central conclusion is that the supra-regional support of renew able energies should not only focus on technology but also on the activities of regional actors and on the factors that are deci sive for the success, or failure, of their efforts to mobilise a sufficient number of comrades.
