Reducing energy costs

Do you, like most others, find energy bills intransparent, and would appreciate assistance when checking them? If so, we can help you. We provide support, backed by many years of experience in exploiting all the possibilities for reducing ancillary energy costs.

Is it worth investigating ancillary energy costs?

Definitely. Energy costs often represent a substantial proportion of overall costs. Particularly with electric power, the actual energy prices (electricity stock exchange) have fallen clearly in the past years. But the ancillary energy costs such as power and energy taxes, EEG surcharge, grid tariffs, Grid Charges Ordinance NEV, concession levy, CHP charges or offshore liability levy are increasing continuously. Meanwhile, and depending on the company, ancillary energy costs are more than twice as high as the present energy price. And new charges are being added continuously, with the result that no end of this upwards trend is in sight.

However, this development is not a natural law. On the contrary, you have numerous options.

This is how we can support you:

  • Invoice auditing

Our services start with an audit of your bills and invoices. With a detailed analysis of your energy consumption data, we detect excess payments in the past, which can still be reimbursed.

  • Ancillary energy costs

Moreover, we analyse your ancillary energy costs. Here, we often find possibilities to apply for exoneration according to the law, which help to minimize energy costs.

  • Energy supply contracts

We also investigate to what extent your energy supply contracts are matched to your actual consumption. You should not pay for energy you do not need in the agreed amount or manner.

„Frequently, we can significantly reduce the ancillary energy costs of our customers. They bear no risk, and can only benefit. Our payment comes from the achieved savings, which are divided between us.“

The investigation has shown that several million euros in mineral oil tax can be saved annually through measures for heat extraction in test bench operation alone. In addition, heat and electricity procurement costs can also be reduced to a considerable extent. In contrast, the investments for heat extraction are relatively low.

The analysis of the existing cogeneration plant showed that the operation of the natural gas cogeneration plant is still economical. The use of biomethane would make ecological sense, but is currently not economical. The production of cold from the absorber is only recommended if the heat comes from the CHP. In addition, an electricity/natural gas tender was carried out.
