Energy Efficiency / 05. July

TÜV Rheinland Energy Forum

Although the German “Energiewende” energy transition brings new and exciting market opportunities, it also poses companies from all industries a variety of challenges. Along with concerns about energy efficiency and cost savings, industry leaders doing business from Germany are keenly aware of the need to secure global competitiveness.

High energy costs affecting market competitiveness

Tax imposed to support the expansion of renewable energy has increased substantially from its inception in 2000. Both private and industrial German consumers have paid billions to subsidize the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. Although some companies labeled as “energy intensive” receive a rebate on this tax, most German companies receive no discount at all, making doing business in the country very expensive. Company executives are scrambling to ensure their ability to compete on the open market, with some resorting to investing in factories abroad where the cost of doing business is lower. In light of these developments and the challenges posed by the 2015 amended Energy Services Act (EDL-G), TÜV Rheinland will hold interesting and informative energy forum events in the cities of Leipzig, Cologne and Stuttgart.

Highlights of the TÜV Rheinland Energy Forum Program

The afternoon events will focus on the DIN EN 16247-1 and ISO 50001 energy audits as well as certification and beyond. Best practice case studies of technical system solutions for the sustainable reduction of energy costs will also be presented. Expert energy auditors will discuss their experience and give tips for those preparing for follow-up audits as well as address the transition from energy efficiency to resource efficiency and the development of energy audits designed to bring companies cost advantages. 

Other topics include the constraints and rewards of a decentralized energy supply with CHP, development of a targeted measurement concept for energy monitoring and control during operation and the strategic optimization of energy acquisition via lean software.
