Data Types and Keywords

  • Data type: household survey, Scientific-Use-Files: factually anonymized
  • Keywords: consumer preferences, sustainable energy consumption


In 2009, energy (co-)decision makers in private households were interviewed to collect information on consumer preferences for sustainable energy consumption. Energy (co-)decision makers are people with major influence on the choice of electricity supply and consumption for the household (e.g. building energy retrofits or applied technologies). In a CAPI survey, 1,257 private households were interviewed, allowing statistically correct evaluations about varying age and income categories, and geographical units (regions north, south, etc.).
