Baer Energie & Meßtechnik has been awarded funding of 1.2 million euros from the German Office of Economics and Export Control (Bundesamt für Wirtschaft und Ausfuhrkontrolle) for its digital solution for the decarbonization of properties, which is part of the company’s BaerEstateConnect energy-saving project.
As part of the pilot project, energy consumption data for individual devices or entire plants must be recorded exactly and attributed to individual devices or plants (groups). This forms the basis for IT-based determination of individual savings potential. (“bafa Einsparzähler”). This is Baer Meßtechnik’s strength and the potential it offers.
With the BaerEstateConnect energy-saving meter project, Baer’s established strengths of energy and operational data acquisition are combined with the analytics of its associated partner companies, such as CO2Online’s energy saving account. As a result, the decarbonisation of municipal properties can be significantly advanced.
Firstly, steps with very good cost/benefit ratios are implemented to finance the necessary measurement technology. Data is transferred to CO2Online’s energy savings account to establish a building’s energy signature (baseline) and an information platform is created for customers.
This establishes a solid operational database with which the operational aspects of buildings can be optimised as well as creating a basis for additional value-added services. The savings from lower energy costs enable customers to make increasingly targeted investments for more cost-intensive measures.
