For AK it is important that there is a focus on the social dimension of carbon neutrality and the energy transition, next to the ecological and economic dimension. The problem of energy poverty and the social effects generally caused by climate change and the energy transition are still not given enough attention, even though it is clear that not all households are equally able to afford energy efficiency measures or renewable energy sources to heat. Therefore AK calls for:

  • Focus of public funds for thermal renovation on buildings to achieve a particularly effective utilisation
  • Affordable and uncomplicated support for renovations as they are key for low-income and energy-poor households
  • Offering more options for qualifications and further training in the field of renovations
  • More rights and better protection standards for consumers in terms of heating supply
  • The creation of an energy and climate aid fund on national level
