Project SHERPA

SHERPA “Strategy to promote mountain huts renewable energy sources and their rational use world wide from Alps to Alps”.




The SHERPA project takes place within the scope of the “ALTENER II” program of the European Comission.

The objective of the project is the development of guidelines which support the dissemination of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and promote the rational use of energy (RUE) in mountain areas. In order to reduce the pollution of highly sensitive mountain regions which can be caused by tourism, the established guidelines may serve as a general example for the development of sustainable mountain tourism in other regions of the world.

The contributors of the project are: the French company Transénergie in corporation with the French Alpine Club CAF, the Institut für Solare Energieversorgungstechnik in Germany, the Otto-von-Guericke-University of Magdeburg, the German Alpine Club DAV, the Italian company Sasso SNC in Corporation with the Italian Alpine Club CAI and as a representative of East-European Countries, the Bulgarian Sofia Energy Centre (SEC).
