The total consumption of electricity in Germany amounts to 450 billion kilowatt hours per year. The industry's share is 240 billion kilowatt hours, that is more than half.
The price structure and general political conditions are unstable. For production sites in Germany, it is crucial to have a safe, affordable and climate-friendly supply of energy.
It would already be possible today to lower primary energy consumption by at least a third through efficiency increases. But to do so, the technical possibilities would have to be utilised consistently.
For some companies this means That to survive in the market, they need a well-thought-out, sustainable energy concept. Because energy savings and increased competitiveness go hand in hand.
agiplan energy concepts: Extensive expertise from a single source
Our project experience has proven: meaningful plant structure planning is not possible without a comprehensive approach to energy. An overall view of the location is thus essential.
At agiplan, interdisciplinary project teams consisting of factory planners, production specialists, architects and energy experts work under one roof. To devise an agiplan energy concept, our experts collect data and information on the factory in order to obtain an overview of the energy requirements and the interrelationships in production.
Based on these data, it is assessed which technique is best applied. Is it possible to use combined heat and power units? Is a cooling tower viable? Is a radiant heating system feasible? Or is the use of solar panels cost-efficient?
Procurement costs and lifecycle costs determine the most economical way to produce electricity, refrigeration, heating and compressed air for the respective building.
