In order to further improve regional sourcing and the environmental balance, considerations are currently being made to switch the energy supply from natural gas to biogenic energy sources.
In 2003, a biomass heating plant with an associated local heating network was built in the town of Gräfenberg. This local heating network is currently being significantly expanded so that more than 60 new consumers can be supplied with renewable heat from the existing biomass heating plant.
As part of the company’s own sustainability strategy, Danone GmbH is striving to renew its energy generation at the Ochsenfurt site. The goal is a CO2-neutral energy supply for the plant with hot water, steam and electricity.
As part of the company’s internal sustainability strategy, the company is expanding its existing energy supply with several wood gasification CHP units, biomass boilers, a large buffer storage and several PV systems. The aim is to generate climate-friendly and renewable electricity and heat to supply the company’s own production halls.
MAN Truck & Bus SE has set itself an ambitious goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 50% by 2025 compared to 2015. The introduction of the energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001:2018 in all plants and the continuous further development of the CO2 roadmap are essential building blocks for the Group on the way to achieving this goal.
In order to replace the climate-damaging fuel lignite with CO2-free heat, the site managers decided to connect the plant to the local district heating network of N-Ergie. In addition to the conversion of the heat supply, several optimisation measures in the local heating network were also investigated in order to achieve the maximum CO2 savings.
The service provided by eta Energieberatung comprised those planning services resulting from the application to the competent licensing authority for the construction and operation of a sewage sludge drying plant with bioenergy production.
To increase supply security and grid stability in their supply area, SWM is planning to use two large battery storage facilities in the Munich area. The project is being realised with the support of eta Energieberatung, from the initial idea to the implementation.
The optimization of the heat supply of the district building yard Neuses, by a biomass heating station, leads to a substantial saving of the emissions of CO2.
