Energy management and energy policy play key roles at Viessmann. Thanks to our energy management system (EnMS), we’ve created an organizational structure that lets us systematically improve energy efficiency, energy use, and energy consumption.
The energy management system is visualized on an energy cockpit with flow diagrams. Counting stations set up in the pipeline network provide information about current consumption and about the amount of energy produced in-house or used through heat recovery measures.
Material flow diagrams provide a clear overview of where a particularly large amount of energy is used and where the highest costs or emissions occur.
An important prerequisite for optimizing the energy demand is the systematic development and presentation of energy and material flows in the company. That’s why we conduct a detailed material flow analysis for this. It acts as the basis for understanding the individual processes and procedures in the overall system. Load profile analyses broaden the obtained findings using statistical measurements and processes.
The analyses are aimed at defining measures and processes in a structured manner so that we can reduce energy consumption and thus also costs and emissions.
