Half of all Germans plan to invest in energy efficiency – survey
Almost every other German plans to spend money on increasing the energy efficiency of their home, Rheinische Post reports. In a survey conducted by Environmental Action Germany (DUH) and heating engineering company Vaillant, 48 percent said they planned to modernise the building they live in, whereas 46 percent pondered no such investment. The problem, though, lies in implementation: only one percent of the building stock is modernised every year, the newspaper writes. More than two thirds (68 percent) of respondents said they were ready to “personally contribute to the energy transition”, and 56 percent answered they wanted to have more information on support programmes and efficiency measures.
