Energy Efficiency in Buildings

In the building sector, Germany has set an objective of achieving a nearly climate neutral building stock by 2050. Currently, the building sector accounts for about 35% of the end energy consumption and about 30% of CO2 emissions in Germany. The German building sector thus has massive untapped potential for investment in energy efficient technologies and solutions. This translates into a substantial business opportunity for service and technology providers.
