Klaipėda energy revival strategy

The aim of the project is to revive a historic territory of a coal-fired power plant built on the banks of Dane river in Klaipėda to it’s citizens and to create a network of public spaces strenghtening the river embankment, promoting recreational use of water while creating a multi-purpose center instead of an energy plant.

The development of cultural heritage sites, the development of commercial facilities, the relocation of production and other issues related to the development of the territory are complex, provoking a lot of debate and polarizing society and politicians. Therefore, a decision was made to perform a multi-layered analysis of the complex and a feasibility study of the conversion, the aim of which is to provide three possible scenarios for the redevelopment of the territory and to suggest the best scenario of revival for Klaipeda city.
