Carina Zell-Ziegler and Benjamin Best published an article on energy sufficiency in the current issue of “Aus Politik und Zeitgeschichte”. The authors show the role of demand reduction for climate targets and why energy sufficiency is an indispensable part of potential strategies.
Furthermore, they show which policy instruments are discussed at the moment and add more ideas to reduce energy demand in the short, medium and long term as well as implementation examples.
