More solar panels for Nuremberg


Solar energy is a sustainable substitute for the current fossil fuels, such as coal and gas, that are used to generate power and that pollute the air, water, and land.

Moreover, considering the paucity of water, the fact that solar energy does not produce waste or contaminate water is essential. More and more cities seem to be turning to this extremely clean source of energy as a way to secure a more sustainable future.

In Nuremberg, the second-largest city in the German state of Bavaria, another major project recently kicked off, which is supposed to bring the city one step closer to its goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2035.

Mayor of Nuremberg Marcus König stated on social media: ”Today we commissioned a new photovoltaic system on the roof of car park P4 at Nuremberg Airport – it is currently Nuremberg’s third largest system with over 10,000 square metres and an estimated annual electricity output of 855,000 kWh.”

”Thank you that our municipal subsidiaries such as the airport, NürnbergMesse and N-ERGIE are also leading the way with VAG and helping us to achieve our goal of climate neutrality in 2035,” the mayor of Nuremberg further stated.

Mayor König added that expanding photovoltaics is even more crucial because Nuremberg can hardly rely on hydropower and wind electricity in the city.

”By the way: Nuremberg’s largest installation is also on a municipal building, namely at ‘Großmarkt.’ Mayor of Nuremberg Marcus König added. (photo credit: MICHAEL WILSON/Unsplash)
