With this Motion (NR.452), we would like to kick off our participation in the “Wattbewerb”. By participating in the “Wattbewerb” we hope to create another incentive to equip all suitable private roofs in Frankfurt with photovoltaic or solar thermal systems by 2035. The “Wattbewerb” was initiated by a broad alliance of climate protection organisations to accelerate the expansion of photovoltaics. As part of the competition, each participating municipality attempts to be the first to double its installed photovoltaic capacity per inhabitant.

Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
