The Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment in Berlin had commissioned a feasibility study "Climate Neutral Berlin 2050". The feasibility study was to examine the basic feasibility of Berlin's climate neutrality objectives and to substantiate the feasibility in a comprehensible way by means of target scenarios and concepts of measures. The study will be translated into concrete measures as part of Berlin's energy and climate protection program.


  • Comprehensive list of technical and policy action measures.
  • Evaluation of costs and climate impact of the measures
  • Staging and recommendation of timeframe for implementation
  • If implemented according to recommendation, CO2 reductions of >85% are achievable
  • Development of a controlling and monitoring tool to track savings
