Energy saving advice in Kiez: Evaluation of the project clevererKIEZ e.V. Wuppertal


In Germany, millions of households have difficulty paying their energy bills. One solution is energy consulting. The clevererKIEZ project was based on an integrative concept that links the labor market, social goals and environmental goals. As part of an intensive training program, the long-term unemployed qualified as energy consultants. Between 2010 and 2013, more than 1,000 households took part in the project. The report introduces the project and explains the results of the evaluation.
