Energy Concept

Being part of the World Heritage Site Wattenmeer, Borkum has set itself the goal of becoming emission-neutral by 2030. The Qffshore Quartier supports these plans with its forward-looking energy concept. By smartly combining the individual concepts for electricity, heat and transport, our aim is to achieve carbon neutral operation of the entire quarter.

Further ideas for enhanced sustainability are currently in the planning stage.
