Greater awareness of sustainability and, above all, the rise in electricity and gas prices are taking the energy debate from the political stage to German households.
Sustainable energy is not only an issue for the industry, but also its responsibility: how can we save energy, make it affordable and – above all – continue to make it available for everyone in our country – regardless of whether they live in an apartment building, a detached or semi-detached house, rent, own or live in an old or a new building?
Our Techem consumption data study 2022 contributes to this stocktaking. It shows where we stand, where we need to go, and what we can realistically achieve. It is based on the evaluation and analysis of data on consumption and costs for heating and hot water from 1.4 million German homes in around 120,000 apartment buildings in 2022.
The Consumption Figures Study 2022 reveals the high potential for reducing emissions through a combination of digital solutions and efficient user behavior. Assuming an increase in efficiency of about 15 percent, there is an additional savings potential of roughly 1.9 million tons of CO2e in Germany alone.
