Whether adapting to the effects of climate change, ensuring energy security for your production site or achieving energy and CO2 savings targets to make your company competitive: there are many reasons to convert the energy supply of districts and industrial sites to renewable energies and low-carbon systems and to improve their energy efficiency. However, those who tackle the transformation of their local energy system must also face many challenges: For example, the integration of renewable energy often requires the adaptation, conversion or redesign of existing infrastructures as well as the development and integration of new solutions for energy storage and distribution. The multitude of local and operational conditions, framework parameters and technological options make a holistic analysis and planning necessary in order to reduce investment costs and maximize benefits. At the same time, it is important to gain the support and acceptance of your stakeholders – be they affected communities, companies, your employees or tenants.
Our scientists support you in solving these challenges. For example, by developing energy concepts for climate-neutral commercial and industrial sites and residential areas. This includes modeling local energy systems with regard to the generation, storage, distribution and use of electricity, gas, heat, cooling, steam and compressed air. We combine this systemic expertise with coordinated technological focuses: the development and implementation of solutions for the thermochemical conversion of biogenic residues, industrial high-temperature heat pumps, latent heat and battery storage and processes for the production of innovative insulation materials. Our portfolio also includes the analysis and integration of stakeholders to maximize the success of your transformation projects.
