The environmental law is a success story of the regulatory law. The Austrian law § 16 WEG 2002 (Wohnungseigentumsgesetz, Condominium law) is not. To increase the energy efficiency, I wanted to install (as a landlord of a shop), a heat exchanger in the ventilation of the air conditioning. One of the owners in the house was against. I wanted to buy an electric car and install a wall box to charge the car. All 100 owners must agree to these projects, – it’s hopeless. Many of the judges do not take into account in their judgment the problem of climate change, even if the home-owners are not disadvantaged by the measures to increase efficiency.
