Our main focus is on energy, including energy efficiency, energy management and renewable energies.
Industrial energy management following ISO50001 improves efficiency in all departments, decreases costs and reduces negative environmental impacts:
- Review of the energy system
- Continuous data collection and monitoring of the energy consumption
- Regression analysis to identify variables and their influence on the consumption
- energy procurement
- correct operation of equipment
- continuous maintenance
- Implementation of organisational structures to continuously improve energy consumption
- training and awareness raising for staff
Our approach is based on the energy management standard ISO50001 and integrates relevant staff of an organisation to continuously improve efficiency. Technical and organisational aspects will be included, energy costs will be optimised and remain on an improved level. All actions are structured in an energy management system and results will be verified continuously. We have been dealing with energy management systems since 2002, when we first implemented this system in an Austrian paper mill. We know that the costs for implementation will pay back usually after some months.
Experiences could be gained during the implementation of the system in industries and municipalities in Austria, Germany, Armenia, Ukraine and Russia.
Savings will be verified following ISO50015 and IPMVP.
Energy Efficiency in hotels
Energy Efficiency is still no topic of importance in hotels and resorts, although energy costs increased during the past years significantly. Depending on the climate zone there are the following energy systems of importance:
- In Central Europe heating, ventilation and spas cause significant energy consumptions. However, also other areas areas such as the kitchen, the laundry or illumination do often show high energy costs.
- In Mediterranean areas, in Asia or Latin America air conditioning, ventilation and cooling are areas of importance for energy consultants, on some islands electricity generation and fresh water production often show low efficiency.
Our experience shows that initial savings can be achieved by continuous monitoring of significant energy users in comparison to variables and operating times. In a second step investments might be necessary to improve energy efficiency of equipment and systems, typically with pay back below 3 years.
It is of particular importance that all actions do not cause negative effects on guest comfort and service quality. In contrary, often these actions improve well behaviour for guests.
Our team has practical experiences in the analysis of energy systems of hotels and resorts in Central and South Europe, the Caribbean and Asia.
With our work we contribute to a sustainable and responsible use of natural resources
