Technical energy efficiency and monitoring of energy flows

Building blocks to success: Monitoring, efficiency, self-generation

Measures to reduce energy consumption through the usage of efficient technologies are a substantial part of any corporate energy management. The envistra team has extensive know-how in the key technology areas for the industrial supply of energy and utilities. We carry out an on-site technical analysis, our “energy check”, to identify and evaluate the efficiency potential of our client’s sites. On the basis of this analysis, we develop new concepts to increase potential savings. Particularly in the areas of compressed air supply, lighting, cooling, ventilation and heating it is possible to achieve high savings. In addition, we offer detailed knowledge about attractive subsidies available for project planning and implementation.


Having an independent power supply, for example with the help of combined heat and power generation, has become against the background of rising energy costs and even under the new legal framework a very economically interesting option. Taking advantage of this option requires careful analysis, as well as a detailed technical and economic evaluation. For self-generation to be economical, it is essential that your business enjoys high overall efficiencies, achieved through implementing a solid heat usage concept, upon which the design of the plant is based. Thanks to experience gained from numerous projects, we are able to support companies with this process, as well as with unconventional project ideas. Economic viability is based on current political and legal conditions and evaluated by means of cash flow analysis or the net present value method.

Whether you are employing an energy management system according to ISO 50001 or an “alternative system”, monitoring your essential energy usage is necessary. In the context of audits, especially energy-intensive companies are finding themselves under increasing pressure to meet the demands for the continuous recording of essential energy consumers. The main requirements for the monitoring of energy usage in the context of corporate management systems are:

  • Monitoring and analysis of significant appliances that are subject to the continuous improvement process - estimates should be gradually replaced by measured values
  • If necessary to begin with, estimated values ​​should be checked through periodic measurements
  • A central component of any energy management system is a monitoring concept, which documents energy requirements and the appropriate level of energy monitoring in a comprehensible manner
  • Measurements must be reviewed and verified at regular intervals to ensure that they are providing accurate and reproducible data

The envistra team can help you to develop an appropriate approach to monitor energy flows, which complies with the requirements of the ISO 50001. In addition to verifying estimates through periodic mobile measurements, we offer economical solutions for the continuous monitoring of energy flows tailored to the needs of your company. Our services are rounded off with client support, data analysis and regular tests of the measuring equipment.

For many companies, competent monitoring of energy flows as a basis for achieving energy savings is a new challenge.
