The German Energy Agency’s “heat from renewable energies” project uses intensive public relations work, information brochures and internet services to target property-owners, tenants, energy advisors and other technical experts. The aim is to enlighten the relevant market participants about the use of renewable energies in the buildings sector and to provide extensive information. The project was initiated by the German Energy Agency with support from the Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) as a follow-up project to the “Solar Heat Plus Initiative” in 2006 and provides a basis for planning together with information in respect offunding options and the relevant regulatory framework. These services are designed to increase motivation to use renewable energies and boost their acceptance. By means of competitions for property owners like “More value –heat from renewable energies” and “Germany’s most beautiful efficient buildings. Energy from wood-earth-sun”numerous detailed practical examples have been presented to a wide audience. A communication campaign on the market incentive programme and on the EEWärmeG similarly contributed to increasing demand for renewableenergies. This also results in growth in energy efficiency.
