With regard to the art project energyinart bioenergy|info|network|art the bio-energy region of Bayreuth plans to stimulate a critical, constructive and inspiring artistic debate on the topic of energy transition. At the same time, by means of specific projects, it is planned to develop and harness the regional bio-energy potential as far as the requirements of environmental protection, sustainability and social acceptability allow.

energyinart thus forms the connecting element in an overall concept for environmentally and socially acceptable use of the regional bio-energy potential. While the specialist projects form the content basis for the artistic debate, the energy art projects act as the source of inspiration and creative motor. They tap into new target groups and provide for high media attention.
The overriding objectives of the bio-energy region are to:

  • increase regional value creation through concrete measures to develop potential and improve efficiency of use
  • avoid conflict in the context of bio-energy generation
  • increase awareness, improve information and export knowledge.
It is intended to achieve the objectives via the following specialist projects, some of which will be realised in co-operation with the twin region Zweckverband Müllverwertung Schwandorf.
