Power consumption advice for large household users
A research project by the Institute for Applied Ecology (Öko-Institut) and the Institute for Social-Ecological Research (ISOE) has shown that those households with the highest power consumption can be particularly successful when it comes to saving electricity. They can be motivated by showing them how much more power they use than other households and by receiving individual council, the study found. The seven “power consumer classifications” that the researchers established for comparison purposes, have been incorporated into the “power index for Germany” by the Ministry for Environment.
