Municipal energy profiles
Energy and emission data for municipalities
Which power plants are there in the area of the Regional Authority FrankfurtRheinMain? Where are these plants located? What is the electricity and heat consumption in the region? These questions are answered by the Energy Profiles and the Climate-Energy-Atlas.
The municipal energy profiles compare the calculated energy consumption with the local energy production. Both fossil and renewable energy sources are considered. They also provide information on the greenhouse gas emissions caused by energy production. The energy and CO2 balances are calculated for all municipalities in the region using a uniform methodology. Energy consumption is derived statistically ("top down" approach) and data on energy production is based on individual plants recorded by the Regional Authority FrankfurtRheinMain ("bottom up" approach).
The Climate-Energy-Atlas presents the energy and emission data spatially. Interactive data queries provide a detailed overview of energy production and consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions in the individual municipalities. It also contains information on local energy consulting services or memberships of the associated municipalities in climate protection alliances.

Support us in updating the profiles! Missing data, incomplete or incorrect information, changes in municipal activities: We are happy to receive all this information and look forward to your feedback. We are also happy to integrate more detailed data into the energy balances. For example from climate protection and energy concepts or from utilities, as well as new power plants.

Due to the abundance of data and further processing, differences or incompleteness cannot be ruled out. No responsibility is taken for the correctness of the information. For the calculation of the energy profiles we are dependent on the availability of various data, some of which are published with a delay of about 2 years.
In order to improve the quality of the data and to relieve municipalities and counties of the burden of data collection, the Regional Authority FrankfurtRheinMain is working on a uniform methodology in working groups at federal and state level.
By selecting the name of the area (municipalities, counties, Regional Authority FrankfurtRheinMain) the respective energy profile is reached (in German).
