Evaluation of the InvKG and the federal STARK programme

InvKG = Coal Regions Investment Act 
STARK = Strengthening the Transformation Dynamics and Awakening in the Coalfields and at the Coal-fired Power Plant Sites

On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection, the IWH and the RWI are evaluating the use of the approximately 40 billion euros the federal government is providing to support the coal phase-out regions.

The research project examines whether the money is being used sensibly to achieve policy goals such as creating jobs, promoting growth and productivity, reducing regional disparities and cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
