As a complementary study, KfW Bankengruppe and the ZEW have developed a second annual survey in the framework of the KfW/ZEW-CO2-Barometer: the KfW/ZEW-CO2-Barometer – Manufacturing Industry Edition. The aim is to shed light on recent developments in the German manufacturing industry driven by European climate and energy regulations as well as the German energy transition in particular. The survey covered topics concerning energy price expectations, investments in energy efficiency and the German energy transition. Main Results of the Survey: Most of the Companies Conduct Energy Efficiency Checks on a Regular Basis. Medium-Sized and Large Companies Are More Likely to Invest Energy Efficiency Measurements than Smaller Companies. Energy Consumption Targets Might Trigger Investments in Energy Efficiency. Grid Expansion is Considered as the Major Challenge to the German Energy Transition.
