Optimizing energy procurement
Has energy meanwhile become a notable cost factor for you? If so, we can present possibilities for cost reduction. With a bundle of specific measures, we frequently achieve significant savings in energy procurement.
How does one purchase energy for a low price?
There is no universal purchasing strategy. Energy prices are influenced by numerous factors. Every day, our experts filter the essential market data, from which they develop an individual strategy that is precisely matched to your needs.
We can assist you as follows:
There are many options for purchasing energy – we prepare an individual purchasing concept for you.
- Risk and portfolio management
We also support you when preparing and implementing a risk and portfolio management system.
- Calling for tenders and contracting procedures
If you are a public purchaser, and must handle your energy procurement by calling for tenders, we can manage the contracting procedures in accordance with VergRModVo or VOL/A
- Energy marketing
The Renewable Energy Law (EEG) makes it possible. Direct marketing of electrical energy produced from renewable sources opens up possibilities for generating more revenue than the fixed EEG remuneration.
„Safeguard yourself when purchasing energy. Apart from an audit-proof and legally correct call for tenders, we can achieve rock-bottom energy prices for you. That goes easy on your budget and provides planning safety.“
Andreas SchmidHead of the Energy Procurement Division
We supported these customers in purchasing energy and thus reduced their energy costs.
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.
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.
Through eta Energieberatung a sustainable concept for a secure procurement of fuel assortments was developed and a regional market overview was created. In addition, a profitability analysis and a sustainability assessment was carried out.
The tender documents were prepared by eta Energieberatung for the EU tender. The result was an electricity price for green electricity that was below the price of the framework agreement negotiated with E.ON Bayern by the municipal umbrella organizations for the municipalities.
In the investigation of the energy purchase conditions carried out, it was found that the ordered load for district heating was clearly too high. By reducing the ordered heating power, the costs for district heating could be reduced by about 15 %.
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.
