Companies are often unsure as to whether their systems are energy efficient or whether measures to improve efficiency have been successful. With ÖKOTEC’s targeted energy performance indicators and systematic solutions, you can reliably track the success of your efficiency project goals.
Software requirements vary depending on their area of application. EnEffCo’s extensive functionality and supplementary modules ensure a results-oriented solution in a variety of domains, including energy and environmental management, facility management, managerial accounting, and production.
EnEffCo® has been certified by an external auditor to be in compliance with DIN EN ISO 50001. The software solution was praised not only for the way it integrates specific energy-related factors, but also for its support of system management activities.
Funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), this project aims to develop software that can automatically regulate systems according to energy efficiency criteria. The heart of the solution is an intelligent control system based on ÖKOTEC energy performance indicators, statistical methods and artificial intelligence. ÖKOTEC is cooperating with Bayer, Daimler and ThyssenKrupp in this project.
With “CO2realtime“, companies can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and save energy costs. One innovative aspect of the project is that the carbon footprint reflects real-time data for specific product. The “Real-time Product Carbon Footprint” project started in 2017 in cooperation with Hydro Rolled Products and with funding from the German Federal Environmental Foundation. The partner for communication is co2online.
The expansion of renewable energy in the German power grid offers appealing revenue opportunities for flexible consumption systems to balance out increasingly fluctuating generation. In the industrial sector, it introduces interesting possibilities for production and cross-cutting technologies. ÖKOTEC is testing these possibilities in various R&D projects. In WindNODE (part of BMWi’s SINTEG funding programme), ÖKOTEC is developing the concept of a technical interface for automated flexibility assessment and control and is testing the processes at pilot industrial plants. In “Phi-Factory“, scientists at TU Darmstadt, together with ÖKOTEC and industrial partners, are investigating how the supply of renewable energy can be harmonised with demand.
