Germany is close to the centre of the European energy crisis caused by the interruption of Russian gas supplies. Apart from turning down temperatures and switching off public lighting, the real short-term answer is energy efficiency. The ESCOs should be at the centre of that agenda.

And if it is not, why this may be? With all eyes on the European energy market this winter, Rüdiger Lohse’s insights on the role of ESCOs are indispensable.
