Green electricity and green natural gas at Oktoberfest
Since 2012 all showmen, traders and proprietors at the Wiesn have been supplied with M-Ökostrom (a green energy tariff). And over 60 percent of showmen use the “M-Ökoaktiv” offer from Munich City Utilities. By using M-Ökoaktiv, in addition to using M-Ökostrom and M-Ökogas, they are supporting the construction of renewable energy plants by paying a premium on top.
The festival management thinks and acts ecologically too: Since 2000 all public spaces at Oktoberfest, the “Wiesn streets” and the public restrooms have been powered by green electricity.
In addition to M-Ökostrom, all of the over 50 food outlets at the Wiesn use M-Ökogas. By providing the eco-friendly M-Ökostrom and M-Ökogas for all, 1,000 metric tonnes of CO2 are saved each year.
