The main topic is: "Contracting: Making energy efficiency possible". Contracting is highly valued in the market for energy services. Not only the German government has recognized this and included contracting in its 2nd National Energy Efficiency Action Plan NEEAP as a form of implementation for more energy efficiency. In its current coalition agreement, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia also calls for contracting to be expanded as a way of financing energy efficiency technologies.
The magazine also contains an in-depth interview with Gerd Marx, project manager of EnergyDialog.NRW and head of department at EnergyAgency.NRW, and Heinz-Jürgen Schütz, advisor to EnergyAgency.NRW on the subject of "Information, Motivation, Mediation".
