“Germans want innovative power electricity contracts”
Three in four Germans are interested in electricity contracts with a variable power price that depends on supply and demand, according to a representative survey by the Federal Association for Information Technology (Bitkom). 58 percent of respondents said their main motivation would be to support the generation of renewable electricity, 57 percent said they hoped to reduce their power bill. Half of respondents did not know their yearly power consumption, and more than a third did not know their monthly payments. 55 percent said they had never changed their power supplier, a move that can save many households several hundred euros per year.
