The “energy saving check” is a common activity of the Deutsche Caritasverband (the social
organisation of the catholic church) and “Bundesverbandes der Energie- und Klimaschutzagenturen Deutschlands e.V.” In the county of Hannover the energy saving check will be executed by AWO Region Hannover e.V. and the Klimaschutzagentur Region Hannover.
This activity has several targets. On the one hand the electricity consumption and the related costs for low income households is to be reduced. On the other Hand it is a chance for long term unemployed persons to get practise and find a new job.
Last but not least this activity will take an important part in environmental and climatic protection. That is why it is sponsored by the ministry of environmental affairs.
