“How tenants can lower their energy costs”

dena / Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

German household consumers save 10 percent of heating energy on average, if they receive a one-time energy efficiency counselling and monthly information on consumption, according to results of a pilot project coordinated by German Energy Agency (dena), reports Andreas Mihm for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. “Savings are small, though. They were 15 – 21 Euros net per apartment (69 square metres) per year” and depended on what measuring equipment needed to be installed and paid for, writes Mihm.
