eza! – answers to energy questions

eza!, the Energie- & Umweltzentrum Allgäu (energy & environmental centre allgaeu) is a non-profit organisation founded by Local Authorities in Allgäu, businesses and action groups to promote both, energy efficiency and renewable energies. We aim to provide "answers to energy questions".

eza! offers a wide range of services. These include publicity and events, energy consultations, training schemes for professionals and support for local and regional energy policies.

eza! monitors developments in technology and the market-place in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency, focusing on energy use in buildings.


The eza!-house, opened in 2002, is a show-case for demonstration, consultation and training. Formerly an old residential building in the centre of Kempten, it was renovated with support of the "High Tech Offensive Zukunft Bayern" program to provide an ideal centre for eza!`s work. The project demonstrates passive house technology in use, reducing the former energy demand for heating by 90%.
