Study: Energy efficiency can reduce German dependence on Russian gas by 50%

Published: 16/04/2014

Within 10 years, German dependence on Russian gas could be reduced by 50%. These are the findings from an Ecofys study for the German “Unternehmensinitiative Energieeffizienz e.V. (DENEFF). To achieve halving the dependence on imports of Russian gas, the efforts to realise the efficiency potential in industrial processes and cross-cutting technologies should be doubled. The urgency of action will further increase due to natural decline in today's important gas suppliers (such as the Netherlands).
