Reducing energy costs
Benefiting from energy legislation
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:
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.
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.
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.“
In these projects, we were able to achieve significant reductions of the energy costs.
The realization of innovative steam generation with combined heat and power production consisting of a conventional steam boiler with micro gas turbine and GTA burner (gas turbine exhaust gas burner), renewal of the steam distribution with clean steam generators and a new ventilation system for the supply of high-hygiene areas were able to reduce the CO2 emissions by almost 20 %.
Various energy saving options have been studied in detail. The cost-effectiveness of an existing CHP was also analyzed under the changed conditions (new legal requirements). In addition, a call for tenders for electricity and natural gas including contract documentation was carried out.

The savings totaled more than EUR 1.000.000 and mostly have payback periods below three years. The study also identified approaches to recover the energy tax on natural gas. The implementation of this measure, which was accompanied by the experts of eta Energieberatung, has resulted in a considerable reimbursement of the energy tax.
