G2Plus knows how to identify cross-industry energy efficiency potentials and use these to generate successful business results for its customers. In doing so, G2Plus not only reduces energy consumption, but also the CO2 emissions and thus the carbon footprint of organisations. The symbiosis between energy efficiency, sustainability and cost reduction in connection with the energy turnaround is attracting the interest of companies in every branch of the economy.
Research and education
Research and educational institutions are home to teaching, research and academic activities, and a communicative exchange is carried out in the form of meetings and conferences. Processes and organisational structures are complex, many-faceted and often vary greatly. At the same time, most institutions have a financial framework that is strictly defined by their respective funding bodies. For this reason, economically efficient building management is particularly important. Optimised energy efficiency saves substantial resources which can, for example, be used elsewhere to improve the organisation. By putting in place an energy-efficient strategy, research and educational institutions also demonstrate that they take a conscientious stance on resources and the environment. Sustainable management of this kind enhances the institution’s reputation and demonstrates that the means with which they have been entrusted are being used in a responsible manner.
Office and administrative buildings typically consist of individual workstations, meeting and conference rooms, infrastructure such as canteens, IT and archive rooms or, depending on the line of business, additional technical facilities as well. These buildings exhibit a relatively high level of energy consumption due to their complex building services systems (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems) as well as the building envelope. At the same time, even simple and cost-effective measures can achieve enormous energy savings. While workflows within companies are clearly structured, their energy processes, on the other hand, tend to be unclear. To achieve an optimal level of energy efficiency, buildings are analysed in detail, the collected data is evaluated using professional methods and the best possible measures for an efficient energy management approach are developed. A lasting reduction in energy consumption requires continual monitoring on the part of the energy company as well as optimally adjusted building services systems and conscientious user behaviour.
Hotels and recreation centres depend on the satisfaction of their guests. A sense of comfort and well-being is of top priority. At the same time, these buildings must be cost effective. A contemporary approach to management also focuses on the efficient use of buildings in addition to the service provided to guests. Hotels and recreation centres are companies that can reduce costs and significantly boost their profits thanks to an optimised energy balance. Savings and improved energy efficiency can be achieved in nearly all areas. By providing a sustainability concept, we also play a key role in supporting successful building management. Using energy and resources in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly manner can also have an additional positive effect. There is also proof that this improves the image of hotels and recreational facilities, thereby creating further added value in terms of marketing.
Hospitals work 24 hours around the clock and have a high level of energy consumption due to their specific building requirements. Areas for patients, staff and medical equipment have different heating, cooling and ventilation standards, in addition to the special hygiene requirements. Care facilities must also adapt to their residents’ needs and the support provided to them. For this reason, hospitals and care facilities have very high energy saving potentials. Energy is a cost factor that enables savings of up to 30%, typically in the areas of electricity, heat and (waste) water. An in-depth analysis and customised solutions for optimising energy efficiency are very worthwhile. Consuming energy in an efficient manner, exploiting energy saving potentials and purchasing cost-effective energy are part of a future-oriented facilities management approach at hospitals and care facilities.
Industry and production are increasingly linked to mechanisation and automation. Manufacturing processes are becoming more detailed and are usually highly specialised. Top-quality production must be carried out as economically as possible in order to guarantee profitability and success. We are contributing to these efforts by optimising companies’ energy efficiency and guaranteeing a reliable, failure-free supply of energy. Industrial companies have very specific building requirements and usually consume too much energy. By analysing systems and production processes in detail, we highlight weak points and suggest measures for improving energy efficiency. Whether heat, electricity or compressed air – in many cases, there is an energy savings potential of up to 30%, which can be achieved even with simple measures. The result is more cost-effective production and a better reputation thanks to the sustainable management of the company.
