STAR stands for Space, Time and Renewables. The STAR Energy Model is an affordable and reliable system to determine a community, city or region’s capacity for energy independence based on local renewable resources. Communities benefit from the information generated by the STAR Energy Model by easily building scientifically quantified scenarios for a secure, sustainable and prosperous future.
An estimated 11 billion Euros in new income, profits and taxes are captured each year in German communities that took the path to local renewable energy development. Local renewable energy autonomy creates jobs and strengthens security. It eliminates carbon in the direct energy mix and provides the basis for lowered atmospheric CO2
Our STAR Energy Model team and technology evaluates the present and future energy demand of urban and regional
areas, for residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural and transport uses. We calculate, compare and explain the potentials for heat, cooling, fuel and power demand reduction, efficiency improvements and local renewable energy generation. We visualise the capacity for energy independence in full-colour maps and charts - even scoping the potential for carbon sequestration. And we can advise communities in reaching energy independence practically and profitably, based on cost-benefit projections.
STAR energy autonomy models and scenario studies have been successfully completed and applied in small towns, larger cities, entire states and even very large regions across national boundaries.PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION
