DMG MORI AG was awarded the "Best Practice Energy Efficiency " label
Energy efficiency measures in companies and trade organisations contribute to the reduction of energy consumption and increase competitiveness. The "Best Practice Energy Efficiency " label of the nationwide campaign Energy Efficiency Initiative of the German Energy Agency (dena) awards company projects which have successfully contributed to the reduction of energy consumption. The Energy Efficiency Initiative is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economy and Energy. In 2015 dena awarded DMG MORI AG with the label "Best Practice Energy Efficiency" in the category "Plant-related projects".
DMG MORI had applied for the label with its 15-30 energy concept as a "Holistic energy efficiency concept, including renewable energies": the reduction of energy costs Energy costs are costs of producing energy (water, electricity and gas costs). These are calculated and allocated to the respective cost units using an overhead allocation base. by up to 30% across all locations by the end of 2015 compared to 2012. The aims of the program are environmental improvements and better competitiveness in order to benefit ecologically as well as economically. The focus of the concept, which was developed by GILDEMEISTER energy solutions, was the company's headquarters in Bielefeld, where a large number of individual efficiency measures were implemented.
In addition to the energy efficiency measures, emphasis was also put on the inclusion of renewable energies and storage technologies. These secure central corporate functions in case of blackouts, lead to cost savings and create an e-mobility infrastructure for employees and visitors. Among other things, the lighting was converted to modern LED technology in the production areas, ventilation systems were renewed and compressed air management systems were introduced. In addition, a site-wide energy monitoring system was installed. As a result, energy consumption was reduced by more than 3.4 GWh per year, thus saving almost 500,000 € in energy costs Energy costs are costs of producing energy (water, electricity and gas costs). These are calculated and allocated to the respective cost units using an overhead allocation base. each year. Based on the positive experience, similar concepts have now been implemented at other company locations.
- Introduction of a site-wide energy monitoring system
- New energy-efficient ventilation and air conditioning systems
- New energy-efficient lighting concept in the production halls
- Renewal of the compressed air system for minimizing losses
- Heating and cooling supply from geothermal energy
