Advisory services and financing models
Measures taken to increase energy efficiency include low emission cars, smart machines, environmentally friendly construction techniques and materials as well as recycling.
Buildings, for instance, account for 40% of the German energy consumption and one third of the CO2 emissions. The savings potential is vast. Therefore the German government wants all buildings to be climate neutral by 2050. Hence, the energy consumption of all buildings shall be gradually reduced to desired target levels.
Despite these potentials, measures like Energy Performance Contracting and off-balance financing do not pick up the speed expected. Nevertheless, business cases can already be found.
