Uniper: your partner for greater energy efficiency

Our approach

Our experience repeatedly shows that companies whose production processes consume large quantities of energy (electricity, heat, steam, and gas) have significant potential for optimizing their energy use. Our targeted solutions, which often involve only a small investment, typically increase these companies’ energy efficiency and sustainability while reducing their carbon emissions. We can help you comply with new environmental standards and respond swiftly to changing market conditions. Our solutions always incorporate the latest advances in energy technology so that the various phases of your manufacturing processes use energy better.

Guiding you to greater energy efficiency

We help industrial enterprises realize their energy-efficiency potential by:

  • choosing the best energy mix, which may include renewable energy
  • optimizing your energy-intensive processes
  • designing an integrated heat solution that recycles waste heat
  • utilizing embedded generation
  • exploring on-site energy-storage options
  • taking advantage of any government subsidy schemes.

Our offer in detail

Needs analysis/quick scan
Our quick scan is the first step toward the optimal strategy for you to continually enhance your energy efficiency and regulatory compliance. You can also use the scan to benchmark your current approach.
Our preliminary diagnosis of your energy situation provides you with an overview of your load profile, network costs, energy flow, and other key parameters. We scrutinize your production processes, advise you on whether an energy management system makes sense, and make initial recommendations for what action to take. A small investment often yields tangible savings.
As part of the quick scan at your facility, together we’ll look closely at your:
• energy procurement
• regulatory obligations
• production processes and other technical aspects.
We’ll also explore whether:
• you qualify for subsidies
• we can help you enhance your sustainability
• an energy management system makes sense for you
• you can achieve quick wins at minimal or no cost.
Energy monitoring and management
Detailed information about the energy consumed by individual machines, groups of machines, and technical processes is crucial for your company’s success. For this purpose, we recommend monitoring software, which provides a detailed visualization of the energy needs of your manufacturing processes. It tells you the precise amount of energy consumed at each metering points. After evaluating these data, we identify areas with improvement potential and propose specific measures.
Energy monitoring is the key to continuous performance assessment. We can help you:
• install a monitoring system
• manage and evaluate the data it generates
• put in place an energy management system that complies with ISO 50001
• obtain certification for the measures implemented
• benchmark your energy efficiency against that of your industry peers.
Comprehensive analysis
Determining the total improvement potential requires a detailed, company-wide examination of almost all points where energy is consumed. In particular, we scrutinize and assess the energy aspects of your manufacturing processes, which typically offer a variety of opportunities for greater energy efficiency and energy savings. After identifying the specific savings potential and possible actions to take, we can make recommendations and discuss with you how to prioritize them.
As part of this process, we:
• conduct an energy analysis of your manufacturing processes, in part to identify peak loads and untapped resources
• design a set of recommendations that may include embedded generation and/or innovative storage solutions
• conduct a feasibility study of our solution
• identify government subsidies for which our solution qualifies
• propose how to have your carbon footprint certified.
Planning and implementing the solution
The planning and implementation of energy-efficiency measures presents many industrial enterprises with significant challenges. These processes need to factor in timing, complexity, know-how, and costs.
• We manage all phases of the project, including technical upgrades:
  - conceptual planning and basic design
  - owner's engineering
  - technical specifications
  - project management
  - management of the consents process
  - support with tenders or procurement
  - site and safety management
  - construction
  - quality assurance and environmental management
  - claim and variant management
  - commissioning, acceptance, and handover
• We design contracting arrangements.
• We optimize your energy and asset mix.
• We optimize your supply contracts.
