In the field of energy concepts we have already carried out a wide range of different projects at FfE GmbH.
In the course of preliminary planning, we develop an energy concept that includes baseline study of the local buildings, real estate and technical equipment of buildings, as well as selection of eligible packages of measures to reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption. The measures include a description of the current situation, a procedure description and a cost estimation. For example, potential problems, e.g. obsolete, uncontrolled ventilation equipment or oversized boilers, are disclosed. Based on such findings, optimisation measures are worked out. Experience has shown that, in this respect, significant energy savings are often possible even at comparatively low investment.
This stage is followed by a design planning that contains the first sketches and an initial cost calculation of the overall system.
As well as existing installations, new systems also often show a high energy saving potential, despite a first class design, because the installation does not always run as expected. This can have various reasons, for example:
- Demand rates were oversized (generous estimate with security surcharges, consideration of planned, but not implemented extensions in the plant design, demand reduction due to redevelopment or change of use)
- New framework conditions: Due to energy price increases and lower prices for high-efficiency pumps or insulation, some measures become profitable, although at the time of the system planning they were seen as unprofitable.
- Execution errors and defects: Adjacent pumps interchanged and connected incorrectly, logical errors, bus faults and failures, incorrect control parameters, defective sensors
After commissioning, the systems were not adjusted or optimised to the real operating conditions.
These potential savings can be revealed in the course of a metrological examination. The investigations are based on the existing measurements. If a larger measuring volume is required, our comprehensive measuring equipment inventory with data loggers will be at your disposal.

Then do not hesitate to contact us directly. These appraisals can range from individual systems to entire plants. The aim of these detailed appraisals is to develop a sustainable energy concept for machines or entire sites.
