Energy Management

ISO 50001 / DIN EN 16001
International Standard for Energy Management Systems


When introducing an energy management system, a tax reduction from 25MWh consumption has been announced to begin in 2013.

Under the energy concept of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), top priority is placed upon exploiting potential energy efficiencies. It has been announced, that starting in 2013, a tax reduction is possible for companies that have installed an energy management system. In addition, the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) states that receiving this tax reduction is based upon a company having its energy management system active in daily use.

An energy management system is an appropriate tool to lower a company's energy consumption and systematically reduce its long-term energy cost while actively contributing to climate protection.
