The East German states are in pole position for the start of the heating transition. According to a survey by the energy company E.ON, almost three-quarters of eastern German homes have been renovated or partially renovated, not least thanks to subsidies for modernizing buildings after reunification. Peel Ports Group and E.ON announce solar and wind projects at the Port of Liverpool to help the UK's 2nd largest port operator to meet its goal of net-zero emissions by 2040. Berlin, Bremen and Hamburg are leading the way in CO2-saving heating. A recent data survey by the energy company E.ON shows that the German city states have the lowest CO2 emissions per person when it comes to heating. E.ON and the global investment manager Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners are jointly investing in the construction of a large-scale battery storage project in the UK.
