Energy Efficiency in Business and Industry

Energy Efficiency in Business and Industry

Save Money and Preserve the Environment through Efficient Energy Use

Consistently using energy efficiently can help you control your company’s energy costs. We at TÜV Rheinland can help industry and local governments introduce more energy-efficient structures. Certification as an “energy-efficient company” ensures continuous improvement of your energy efficiency through the use of measurement instruments and Continuous Improvement Process (CIP) to monitor and analyze energy use – and that, in turn, ensures greater cost-effectiveness.

Benefits at a Glance

With support from TÜV Rheinland in matters related to energy efficiency, you can:

  • Implement a continuous improvement process that increases efficiency by taking a comprehensive view of all sources of energy used
  • Benefit from the introduction of an energy management system that offers well-defined, systematic optimization processes
  • Polish your corporate image as far as sustainable development is concerned, by earning a highly recognized TÜV Rheinland certification

Certified Energy Efficiency

Our experts conduct the certification process in several steps and in close cooperation with your company. To reduce the complexity of the energy analysis, we break down your operations into typical consumption elements, each of which has specifically defined requirements. These, in turn, are also individually adapted to the specific circumstances of your company. Upon successful completion of the audit, you receive the “energy-efficient company” certificate. To sustain and further extend the savings achieved, we conduct periodic follow-up audits.

Five Steps to Becoming an “Energy-Efficient Company”

Step 1: The Energy Check

  • Data collection in an on-site visit
  • Measurement of energy consumption at specified points
  • Evaluation of the data

Step 2: Assessment and Analysis of Potential Savings

  • Assessment and analysis of the current state:
    Identification of typical consumption units and their applications Compilation of a list of questions
  • Target definition and optimization strategy
  • Development of scenarios and list of measures

Step 3: Planning and Cost/Benefit Analysis

  • Plan for implementing the proposed savings measures that were approved
  • Economic analysis of the measures planned

Step 4: Technical Implementation

Step 5: “Energy-Efficient Company” Certification

  • Evaluation of target achievement based on your specific list of criteria
  • Certificate and report
  • Follow-up audit

Evaluation of Energy Efficiency

When analyzing and evaluating sources of energy used, overall complexity is reduced by breaking the sources down into manageable elements of consumption. The energy efficiency of each element is then evaluated using a list of criteria specific to the application in question.

Example: A Hospital

Let’s examine a hospital with its typical applications: building shell, elevators, operating rooms, intensive care stations, treatment rooms, hospital rooms, kitchen, laundry, and a vehicle fleet. Each of these applications uses different sources of energy: air conditioning, medical devices, IT equipment, and lighting, to mention a few. The list of criteria that need to be evaluated each includes questions on management and the quality assurance system in place, along with various energy-related devices and installations that have a significant impact on energy consumption. We weigh the importance of each of these while incorporating them in the overall evaluation of energy efficiency.

The Target Threshold: 60%

“Energy-efficient company” certificates are issued to businesses that satisfy at least 60% of the criteria in the overall energy analysis.
