More than 100,000 euros saved on energy costs and 240 tons of avoided CO2 per year – for the automotive supplier BOS, energy-saving contracting with ENGIE is paying off.
"Energy efficiency first" is one of the principles of the EU's Green Deal. In this context, the focus is also shifting to the building sector.
ENGIE operates a special kind of energy center for the Danone subsidiary Milupa in Fulda. Under a long-term energy supply contract, it provides the useful energies for production.
There is still much potential to improve energy efficiency in the various types of non-residential buildings. Energy-saving contracting helps to overcome the existing hurdles.
With ENGIE Deutschland, Ritter Sport is increasing its energy efficiency in the Waldenbuch plant through the jointly implemented measures. The chocolate manufacturer now saves around 130,000 euros in energy costs and over 600 tons of CO2 every year.
Many schools are familiar with the situation: The need for modernization and refurbishment is high, but at the same time the capacities for the corresponding planning and implementation are scarce. The practical example shows how contracting can solve this dilemma.
Around five to seven percent of their operating turnover has to be spent on energy by hotels and produces around five million tons of greenhouse gases in Germany.
Germany's summers are getting hotter and sunnier, and the topic of solar energy is becoming increasingly relevant. Photovoltaic systems are efficient and independent of the price fluctuations on the power exchange.
Air conditioning in the museum presents the operators with some major challenges. Because the room climate must be right for the exhibits and the visitors – an enormous energy expenditure.
Improved energy efficiency reduces the energy consumption of buildings, reduces operating costs and protects the environment. Integration of energy management into facility management can support this.
