Energieberatung in English

Please note

The English part of this website is still under construction (just like the German one, which keeps growing over time). The main information is already available, but more pages will show up step by step. In the meantime feel free to browse the German pages also.

While this site is in English, it is still meant for persons in Germany only. I offer this service for people who feel more comfortable discussing improvements of their building in English rather than German.

I keep using some German terms (like Energieberater) and have translated them for information. As I am no lawyer, the translation may not be legally correct, but the meaning should be similar. I take no responsibility for any false translations, only the German expressions are binding.

When writing dates I use the German order Day.Month. rather than the American Month.Date.

About me

I am a mechanical engineer, focussed on plant and process engineering, with more than ten years experience on the job. In this time I have handled topics like solar thermal energy, flue gas and exhaust air cleaning, ventilation and energy recovery. I have managed several projects, also in other European contries.

I grew up in the Ruhr area and live in Alfter since 2012. I am married and spend my rare spare time as a volunteer with the local Red Cross community.

As Energieberater I can show you the technical solutions and the potential subsidies available. But you choose which measures shall be implemented. Therefore my main target is to find the best solution for you and your building. It is not about a house. It is about a home.
