Energy management

ENERGY MANAGEMENT. YESTERDAY. TODAY. TOMORROW.

The company follows contemporary trends and adapts to the demands of its customers. Geoplin is environmentally aware and promotes alternative uses of energy.

 

Energy management solutions

Energy management serves as the basis for the efficient use of energy, a reduction in costs and increased competitiveness. To that end, energy consumption must be measured at all times, while the largest users and their efficiency and systemic impact must be identified. Control over energy flows is the basis for drawing up and implementing a programme for managing energy and reducing the consumption thereof. Through these measures alone, we can achieve a 5% reduction in all energy costs.

Contracted provision of thermal energy

Geoplin can plan, finance, build, operate and maintain a combined heat and power (CHP) system for you. During the selected contractual period, the company supplies you the agreed quantities of heat and electricity at the agreed price.

Advantages of these types of solutions:

  • setting up of a turnkey CHP unit,
  • an affordable thermal energy price,
  • set up of a CHP unit without the use of the customer’s own funds,
  • contractual maintenance and management of the CHP system, and
  • Geoplin assumes the technical risks associated with implementation of the investment in full.

Comprehensive energy management service

In cooperation with top experts from partner companies, Geoplin offers a comprehensive energy management service. This service is intended primarily for users who do not have internal resources or the competences for such challenges at their disposal. The company offers customers an energy audit, the drafting of bases for improving energy efficiency and reducing costs, the implementation of the necessary measures to establish control over consumption and the implementation of a reporting system.

Energy management information system

An online application for monitoring energy efficiency is intended for the owners and administrators of buildings and facilities who are looking for comprehensive information in one location regarding the status of and costs relating to an energy system. Public and private sector customers are able to gain insight into energy consumption, detect and rectify errors in the functioning of the system, financially plan various organisational and investment measures for energy efficiency and ensure the appropriate reporting. Via the information system, it is possible to identify various paths to the energy and cost efficiency of buildings. 

The system facilitates the following functionalities:

  • a real-time overview of the consumption and costs of energy products,
  • the automatic capture, storage and processing of data captured on location,
  • various analyses and the definition of financial and energy indicators,
  • the graphic and tabular presentation of the results of analyses,
  • the quick generation of reports on demand,
  • the automated calculation of real savings, and
  • the monitoring of the effects of investments in energy efficiency. 

The following advantages are gained through the use of the system: 

  • a comprehensive overview of energy and financial flows within the system, 
  • the identification of savings potential, 
  • the targeted monitoring and forecasting of energy consumption, and 
  • the identification of irregularities in the functioning of the system. 

Energy consultancy services include energy audits at your production facilities and the hiring of an energy manager.

Energy audit 

An energy audit serves as the basis for determining necessary activities to optimise energy consumption. It facilitates the identification of possible savings and the economic justification of investments in the optimisation or re-engineering of processes. In cooperation with experts from partner companies, Geoplin offers you:

  • a simple energy audit, or 
  • a comprehensive energy audit. 

Hiring of an energy manager

Energy consultancy services represent an effective approach to the long-term optimisation of energy consumption. Experienced energy consultants perform an energy audit and identify savings potential and opportunities to improve energy efficiency. 

Companies frequently do not have sufficient human resources at their disposal for energy management. Therefore, in cooperation with experts from partner companies, Geoplin offers you the hiring of an energy manager. 

The following advantages are secured by hiring an energy manager:

  • Energy consultancy services and energy management contribute to a reduction in energy consumption and related costs. 
  • Experienced experts from the field of energy and 
  • energy management contributes to the implementation of guidelines for 
  • energy management according to the ISO 50001 standard.

Consultancy and additional services for public tenders

For several years, energy end-users have been paying a price surcharge to promote energy efficiency based on valid legislation. Based on the programme (which includes energy efficiency measures) and public tenders, major energy suppliers are obliged to distribute funds collected to end-customers. Despite a sufficient level of expertise in the field of energy, participation in public tenders represents an obstacle due to a lack of experience and human resource potential.

Together with its contracted partners, Geoplin offers effective consultancy services and assistance in meeting formal conditions and in applying for public tenders. Forms of cooperation may be expanded to the entire range of services, from planning necessary measures and the selection of equipment to project monitoring and reporting.

Solutions for reducing energy consumption

Geoplin offers its customers solutions to reduce energy consumption that are based on an energy contracting business model. To that end, the company searches for the best ratio between reduced energy consumption and the necessary investment, and thus the shortest possible period of return on invested funds.

This service includes an on-site energy audit, the identification of possible savings and the efficiency thereof. In the next phase, project documentation is drawn up and a financing method chosen for the selected area. This is followed by project implementation and the introduction of a system of regulation and control, and the regular maintenance of the system during the contractual period.

Steps for implementation of the solution:

I. Performance of audit and definition of potential – based on an on-site audit of the current situation and the customer’s requirements, the energy manager assesses the potential for lowering energy costs. 

II. Formulation of an offer for project implementation according to the energy contracting model – Geoplin draws up a proposal for the replacement of the system and a projection of future energy savings.

III. Installation of the new system – the signing of an agreement on the reduction of energy costs is followed by the installation of the new system. 

IV. Generation of savings – following the start-up of the new system, the customer receives a monthly report presenting guaranteed and actual energy savings and a monthly instalment for payment. Calculation of the monthly instalment is based on guaranteed energy savings. A reconciliation is performed at the end of the accounting period. 

Advantages: 

  • the replacement of energy systems without investment,
  • a reduction in energy costs, and 
  • a reduction in energy system maintenance costs.

Solutions for own production of energy

By securing own sources for the production of thermal energy or electricity, a customer can provide a portion of electricity from its own production sources, and thus reduce its dependence on external sources and market fluctuations. By implementing such solutions, Geoplin and its partners can contribute to a 15% to 30% reduction in primary energy costs.

Contracted provision of thermal energy

Geoplin can plan, finance, build, operate and maintain a combined heat and power (CHP) system for you. During the selected contractual period, the company supplies you the agreed quantities of heat and electricity at the agreed price.

Advantages of these types of solutions:

  • setting up of a turnkey CHP unit,
  • an affordable thermal energy price,
  • set up of a CHP unit without the use of the customer’s own funds,
  • contractual maintenance and management of the CHP system, and
