Energy Efficiency

BEA-Kunde Bartelt & Sohn: Effizienzsteigerung durch Energiemangement

Germany is the global leader in the field of efficiency technology. However, there are chances not only in export but also for the application on domestic markets.
The factor for success in this area is the energy productivity.

The plans of the federal government is to half the energy consumption in the next ten years, compared to the reference year 1990. This plan requires enormous efforts from trade and commerce, energy producers and large-scale industry, the public authorities, the housing industry and private consumers.
Starting points for additional savings in the manufacturing industry include compressed air systems, electric motors, pump systems, ventilation, refrigeration, heating and hot water as well as electronic data processing (EDP). Measures in the area of buildings include insulation, the use of renewable energies for hot-water production and the extended use of combined heat and power generation (CHP).
Due to their expertise, specialized energy service providers play a prominent role in the process of achieving the set efficiency goals. To coordinate the tasks, the federal government has established a federal agency for energy efficiency at the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA).
