The scope of this chapter is largely determined by the availability of data. Since there are no reliable statistics with which to characterise and aggregate fixed inputs, such as land or agricultural labour, on a common basis over the period analysed, the estimation of restricted cost functions is chosen for the representation of the structure of the technology. The generalised McFadden is used because it can be estimated on input to output ratios or intensity form, and global concavity can be imposed without restricting flexibility.

The result indicates that incentives to invest in energy saving heating technologies are higher for firms with small stocks of capital in invested in structures. The results may also imply that it is optimal first to depreciate the capital invested in structures before investing in new heating systems. Capital invested in machinery and installations has a positive and significant effect on adoption of energy storage and a co-generator with energy storage. Therefore, firms with a larger stock of capital invested in machinery and installations are also more likely to make an additional investment by adopting a co-generator with storage.
