With the GreenBuilding, GreenLight and Motor Challenge Programmes the European Commission operates voluntarily commitment schemes with the aim to increase energy efficiency in non-residential buildings, nonresidential lighting and motors used in industrial processes. By the end of 2011 the total of more than 1,000 Partners were registered. Every year the achievements of the respective Programmes are analysed in detail and published within Evaluation Reports. These Reports primarily focus on quantitative and technological analysis. In order to establish motivations and barriers, attitudes towards benefits and achievements, qualitative analysis based on questionnaires are also carried out regularly. Within the year 2011, an online survey was carried out for the GreenBuilding and GreenLight Programmes and presented within this Report. If possible the findings were compared to those findings established in the previous Surveys. Although the respective questionnaires in the various schemes are not harmonised, an effort was made to establish similarities and common tendencies amongst the key findings. In addition, the findings of the last qualitative Survey carried out amongst Motor Challenge Partners in 2009 were also included.
