Consumption and conservation of energy in small and medium-size business, trade, and the service industry; Energieverbrauch und Einsparung in Gewerbe, Handel und Dienstleistung

Abstract

The objective of the study was to empirically investigate the extremely heterogenous section of ''small consumers'' with regard to energy consumption and the purpose of use. The last representative survey -for Western Germany- was from the year 1982, and no energy-statistical data at all existed for the new states. Therefore, it was urgently necessary to update the data basis for application-oriented measures in economy and politics. The situation of rational energy utilization with regard to small consumers had been investigated only a little and there were no relevant data at all about energy-relevant areas, systems and equipment and no statistical knowledge on the energy-technical situation. The results of the study are expected to help to utilize the doubtlessly existing significant potentials of improving energy-efficiency by making available detailed in-depth branch analyses and representative results. Two practical measures are to be taken in the application phase of the study: working out information brochures about saving energy in the individual branches and carrying out a workshop for multiplicators who will be integrated in the realisation of en energy efficiency policy. Knowledge gained from the study will be used for implementation activities during the project already. [German] Aufgabe der Studie war es, den  More>>

[German] Aufgabe der Studie war es, den sehr heterogenen Sektor ''Kleinverbrauch'' im Hinblick auf den Energieverbrauch und die Verwendungszwecke empirisch zu untersuchen. Die letzte repraesentative Erhebung - fuer Westdeutschland - stammte aus dem Jahr 1982, und fuer die neuen Bundeslaender lagen keine energiestatistischen Daten fuer den Sektor vor. Daher war die Aktualisierung der Datenbasis als Grundlage fuer umsetzungsorientierte Massnahmen in Wirtschaft und Politik dringend geboten. Der Stand der rationellen Energienutzung war im Kleinverbrauch bisher noch wenig erforscht, Bestandsdaten ueber energierelevante Nutzflaechen, Anlagen und Geraete sowie statistische Erkenntnisse ueber die energietechnische Situation fehlten gaenzlich. Die Ergebnisse der Studie sollen dazu beitragen, dass die unbestritten vorhandenen erheblichen Potentiale zur Energieeffizienz-Verbesserung staerker als bisher ausgeschoepft werden, indem zugleich in die Tiefe gehende Branchen-Detailanalysen und repraesentative Ergebnisse zur Verfuegung gestellt werden. Zwei konkrete Massnahmen sollten im Umsetzungsteil der Studie ergriffen werden: die Erarbeitung von Informationsbroschueren zum Energiesparen fuer einzelne Branchen und die Durchfuehrung eines Workshops fuer Multiplikatoren, die in die Verwirklichung einer Energieeffizienzpolitik eingebunden werden sollen. Bereits waehrend der Projektarbeit wurden Erkenntnisse aus der Studie fuer aktuelle Umsetzungsaktivitaeten genutzt. (orig.)}
