The higher the energy efficiency, the lower the energy input, for example in the form of fuels, in order to achieve a certain benefit. This applies to buildings as well as to machines, household appliances or vehicles.
Why is energy efficiency on the rise?
Worldwide, the demand for energy continues to grow. But fossil energy resources are limited and their use is responsible for the greenhouse effect and thus for climate change. Therefore, these energy resources should be used as efficiently as possible.
For companies and consumers, higher energy efficiency has a cost-reducing effect; they can save money in the medium and long term by investing in energy efficiency. In addition, energy efficiency is an opportunity to meet increasing climate protection requirements.
What does the BEA offer?
BEA invests in highly efficient decentralised generation plants for heating, cooling or electricity. These include combined heat and power (CHP) units based on the combined heat and power (CHP) principle and, in addition, natural gas condensing boilers to generate peak loads.
The BEA advises public authorities, companies and private households on how they can optimise the energy efficiency of their buildings or appliances through technical modernisation, professional control or changed user behaviour and thus make them more efficient.
