Pin Post

One day after the elections to the Berlin House of Representatives, Pin AG has started delivering the voting notifications for the Berlin climate referendum.

Referendum seeks amendment to energy transition law

All those who were eligible to vote in the elections to the House of Representatives may vote in the referendum on March 26 as well - as long as they do not move out of Berlin. Berlin-wide, that is about 2.4 million people. The referendum was initiated by the alliance «Klimaneustart». Its aim is for Berlin to become climate-neutral by 2030 and not - as is currently planned - by 2045. To achieve this, the state's energy transition law is to be amended.
