“Energy efficiency industry believes Green Party most competent”

German Industry Initiative for Energy Efficiency (DENEFF)

Energy efficiency businesses say the Greens are the most competent among German political parties when it comes to their field, according to a survey by the German Industry Initiative for Energy Efficiency (DENEFF). Social Democrats and Christian Democrats (SPD / CDU) follow by a clear margin. “The campaign programmes of the parties could bring significant changes to these results – if the parties succeed in convincing companies with their proposals,” said DENEFF managing director Christian Noll in a press release with a view to the autumn federal elections.
