 Increased energy efficiency through better thermal protection is one of the most profitable "​energy sources"​ today. The initial costs of these measures are even lower than the costs for normal fossil fuels. The value creation due to thermal protection measures will occur almost exclusively in the domestic economy, and will mainly benefit medium-sized businesses; the businesses located here have a high concentration of employment, so that consistent mobilisation of the economic potentials as shown here will have a significant employment effect.\\ Increased energy efficiency through better thermal protection is one of the most profitable "​energy sources"​ today.

-Given this win-win situation, an active initiative for improving the quality as well as the rate of implementation was strongly recommended in the study (see [[Basics:​Affordability:​Investing in energy efficiency:​Superior thermal protection is affordable#​Literature]]). With the KfW Development Loan Corporation’s new conditions for interest, such an initiative has now been taken: with interest rates that are 2 to3 % below that of the market rate [[http://​www.kfw-foerderbank.de/​DE_Home/​BauenWohnen/​index.jsp|kfw-Program (Internet page of the development corporation)]],​ it becomes even more economically feasible due to the amount of interest saved.+Given this win-win situation, an active initiative for improving the quality as well as the rate of implementation was strongly recommended in the study (see [[Basics:​Affordability:​Investing in energy efficiency:​Superior thermal protection is affordable#​Literature]]).
