In order for Berlin to be able to achieve the self-imposed targets for expansion of photovoltaics (PC), great efforts still have to be made. The current instruments are not sufficient for this.

Refurbishment of school buildings for climate protection: Introductory educational material on the topic of heat transition in non-residential buildings
This educational material deals with the heat transition as an important part of the energy transition. It gives teachers at secondary level ideas for designing teaching units to convey the most important facts about the refurbishment of buildings.
Landlord-to-tenant electricity supply systems have the potential to involve the target group of tenants in the energy transition. At the same time, they also offer enormous innovation-potential on the consumption side.
Electricity Neighbours: Reform options for accelerating the roll-out of photovoltaic systems on multi-family buildings in Berlin
The state of Berlin and the federal government have set themselves ambitious goals for the expansion of photovoltaics (PV) by 2030. These goals can only be achieved if all market segments quickly start to grow and keep on growing, including the segment of PV plants on multi-story buildings.
The objective of this report is to provide an overview of the interlinkages between the renovation of school buildings and the climate and energy targets adopted for public buildings in Berlin. The report uses an analysis grid to systematically identify these interlinkages.
The reduction of heat demand through energy-efficient building refurbishment and the switch to renewable energies and waste heat in the heat supply are the two central components of the transition of the heating sector in Berlin.
Berlin has set itself ambitious climate targets. In this context, social aspects of the heat transition in Berlin have become an increasingly important issue in view of the scarcity of housing, rising rents and very different housing costs for households.
Solar energy is the most important renewable energy source that can be tapped in Berlin's urban area. The state government has therefore set the goal of covering 25 percent of Berlin's electricity supply from solar energy.
Energy refurbishments in Berlin: How costs and benefits of ambitious climate protection measures are dist
In order to achieve climate policy goals in the building sector, not only a transition of heating systems to renewable energies but also comprehensive energy refurbishments to reduce the heating demand are necessary.
Electricity Neighbours: Evaluation of the social and ecological effects of tenant electricity systems in Berlin
Berlin tenant electricity systems have positive ecological and socio-economic effects, but these remain relatively low compared to the technically available potential.
