The promotion of an ecological energy supply is the guiding principle and vision of the Grüner Strom Label e.V. Logical consequence is that in the criteria of the two quality labels Green Electricity and Green gas criteria for the decentralized, nature-compatible expansion of renewable energies are anchored. The certified Green electricity- and Biogas products This sets them apart from the broad mass of supposedly green energy products, as the issue of natural compatibility hardly plays a role in most products.
As part of the Dialogforum Naturverträgliche Energiewende, Grüner Strom Label e.V. conducted a non-representative online survey in 2017. About 250 participants took part and were asked about the compatibility of nature compatibility and renewable energies.
In recent weeks, we have already published results on the topics of solar energy generation, wind turbines and the use of biomass in biogas plants. Now follow the results on the fourth section, which deals not only with ecology but also with economy and social compatibility as central aspects of the energy transition.
A successful energy transition includes reconciling ecology, economy and social compatibility. In our survey, participants had the opportunity to rate the various aspects in terms of their relevance.
In summary, from the participants' point of view, the energy transition can only be successful if ecology, economy and social compatibility are taken into account, with ecological concerns being considered somewhat more important overall.
