Module 1: Energy Management Status Check

Your first steps to successful energy management. You get a compact status report from us. It contains all essential data on energy consumption, current energy efficiency activities, as well as a list of measures for setting up an energy management system. The status check includes the following services:

  • Interview on-site with the person in charge of energy
  • Analysis of the results and a status report with instructions on the first steps for setting up an energy management system
  • Explanation of the results with recommendations for action
  • Check of possibility for making a claim for special compensation in compliance with §41 EEG for the delimitation of the EEG reallocation and existing funding possibilities

In the professional and premium versions, the status check also includes an alignment with the requirements of the relevant standard, as well as measure recommendations for attaining the certification stage.

Module 2: Potential Energy Savings Check

In the potential check our experts identify the relevant aspects of energy and energy savings potentials in your company. Our service package at a glance:

  • Visit on-site for inventory
  • Evaluation of the results and publication of a report with:
    • Description of the company's initial situation as regards energy demand and consumption
    • List of the processes and plants with the highest energy consumption
    • Evaluation of the building stock
    • Review of previous energy costs on the basis of benchmarks
    • Proposals for energy efficiency improvement measures with an approximate estimate for the savings, efficiency of essential measures, and information on existing funding opportunities
  • Explanation of the results with recommendations for action

Module 3: The Energy Audit

In the energy audit, we carry out an in-depth analysis of energy consumption. The aim is to develop a specific energy-saving concept. The scope of services includes:

  • Visits on-site for inventory and measurements
  • Evaluation of the results and publication of a report with:
    • Quantities and costs of total energy consumption
    • Status of energy consumption and results of the measurements
    • Priorities for efficient use of energy
    • Proposals for implementation of energy-saving measures
    • Proposals for use of renewable energies
    • Economic evaluation of proposals
    • Concrete recommendations for action with detailed instructions
    • Information on funding opportunities


After you have implemented the recommendations in your company, certification follows, either for the TÜV Rheinland standard or in compliance with the EN 16001 / ISO 50001 norm. It only takes six steps for our auditors to guide you to final issuing of certification.

Step 1: Optional Preliminary Audit
Our auditors conduct a preliminary audit, which also includes a site visit. They determine whether any requirements related with this standard have already been implemented in your company and, if so, which ones.

Step 2: Documentation Review
The audit team determines the extent to which your energy management system documentation already concurs with the requirements of the standard.

Step 3: Certification Audit
You demonstrate how your company applies its energy management system in practice, and our auditors test how effective it is.

Step 4: Issue of Certificate
If your company meets all of the criteria, your company is then awarded the certificate. It certifies the efficiency of your energy management system according to the relevant criteria.

Step 5: Monitoring Audits
Our annual monitoring assessments help you continuously optimize your processes.

Step 6: Certification Renewal
After three years the audit is repeated for certification renewal to ensure continued improvement in your processes. You document your commitment to energy efficiency and climate protection to your partners and customers.
