Reduction of Energy Costs

Constant changes in legal requirements and complicated application procedures require up-to-date information and knowledge, to be able to take advantage of the full energy cost reduction potential.

The restructuring of the German power generation landscape as part of the energy and climate transformation imply ambitious challenges for producing companies. There are various possibilities, especially for energy intensive companies, to reduce these energy costs. However, dynamic legislation and complicated application procedures require constant development of "know-how" to be able to utilize all options for reducing energy costs.

Energy costs consist of the costs of electricity procurement (generation/purchase, sales, profit margin), grid charges, taxes, and other levies and surcharges. There are many approaches to reduce these levies / surcharges and charges by taking advantage of legal reduction options.
