Certification – Energy management DIN EN ISO 50001

Energy management certification has the primary goal of achieving continuous improvement in energy efficiency and energy savings in your company through the systematic evaluation of energy consumption, thereby reducing costs.

Energy consumptions and energy costs in the company become transparent and the possibilities for reducing energy consumption become visible.

With effective energy management, companies also make a significant contribution to the conservation of resources and climate protection.

Practical example

Medium-sized glass company with 113 employees; employer's contribution to pension insurance € 215,000; power consumption 3.6 GWh/p.a.; gas consumption 870 MWh/p.a. The company can save € 53,000 in electricity taxes and € 2,050 in energy tax from version 1 and 2. If the criteria from version 3 are met, more than € 100,000 in Renewable Energy Act levy can be waived.

All companies in the manufacturing sector can apply for up to three versions of the electricity and/or energy tax refund in parallel:

  • Version 1: Reduction of tax rates (§ 9b StromStG and § 54 EnergieStG).
  • Version 2: Peak balancing (§ 10 StromStG and § 55 EnergieStG)
  • Version 3: Special compensation scheme (Renewable Energy Act)
