A comparison of the capital, consumption and operating costs for the centralised and decentralised generation variants showed that the centralised variant (partial renewal) has significantly lower annual costs than the decentralised concepts. The cost difference is around €500,000 per year.read more
Energy saving with energy efficiency
You are responsible for the energy supplies in a large company, and your energy costs are far too high? If so, we are your energy efficiency partners. You can benefit from the experience of our 20 energy experts to help you save energy.
Increase energy efficiency - reducing energy costs
Has your energy supply grown steadily and been getting old?
Then it is very likely that you spend more on energy costs and maintenance / servicing than necessary.
In contrast to short-term efficiency measures, it is above all the long-term choices made in the energy production that are decisive for the competitiveness of your business.
For the generation of electricity, heat, cold, steam, etc., there are a variety of techniques or technology combinations. Once made decisions influence the conditions of your energy supply and thus your energy costs for a long time.
Is an energy consultancy worthwhile?
Definitely yes. Due to our long-standing advisers’ history we can guarantee that we will detect energy saving potentials in your company, too. We have advised more than 1,000 clients, who were able to achieve average savings of 5 % to 6 %. Individual measures even reached savings of over 50 %.
Where are your weak spots?
Often it looks different with the energetic infrastructure. The premise here is usually that the required amounts of energy must be made available safely. Although approaches to energy optimization are often in place, mostly the technical staff does not have the time to work out these ideas for decision-makers.
Increasing energy efficiency – this is how we proceed:
The first step of your project involves a detailed walkabout through your premises by our specialists. Hereby, the main energy consumers are investigated, and information is collected for in-depth processing of the task.
Based on the current state analysis, measures are defined for a more efficient use of energy. Apart from a detailed description of the measures, the necessary steps for their implementation are specified.
Possible savings are quantified, and the expected costs for their realization are determined. The resulting measures are summarized in a catalogue of measures and listed according to priority.
Based on the individual measures, an intelligent overall concept is developed, which covers energy production and usage across all areas and types of energy, taking into account possible synergies and/or retroactive effects.
„We found energy saving potentials in every company we investigated. Practically every time, they are located in the energy infrastructure and in energy usage.“
Marketing, strategy and quality management
We have created energy concepts for these companies and thus achieved significant savings.
The investigation created the prerequisites for a heating system dimensioned according to requirements. For example, the required heat output of the new system could be reduced from 6,000 to 4,000 kW initially. Compared to the existing heat supply contract, annual savings of more than 100,000 € were possible.read more
The investigation of the internal energy flows has shown that due to the insufficient hydraulics of the existing heating network, the already existing waste heat recovery from the cooling water circuit of the oil refinery cannot be fully utilized. The greatest cost savings were achieved by the recommended conversion to natural gas instead of heating oil.read more
