Energy Commercials From Germany

Energy Commercials From Germany


Renewable energy, electric mobility, efficient buildings and appliances are the future. In Germany, that vision of the future is not only deeply rooted in public opinion, but also official policy – labeled the “Energiewende.” Owning a piece of that future today is thus a really good sales pitch, especially when half of all Germans think that the “Energiewende” is going too slow!

During the past decade, renewable energy and energy efficiency have grown into a mass market over here in Germany. Growing demand leads to a growing variety of products, which leads to more competition. This development is good and desirable, as well as the source of some very cool commercials. So here are some of these cool internet and TV commercials I came across (the first one is in English, the rest are just in German, but I think you get the picture):

Varta Storage — Engion Family
A customizable Li-ion battery based home energy storage and management system.

1. So Germans exhibit the same stubborn resistance to smart meters that many Americans do?

 

I'm rather surprised by it here.

And it comes from the left and from the right.
