Optimising company energy costs

PrintMailRate-it

A significant trend is currently noticeable in all segments of the energy market towards own electricity generation. The reasons for this are firstly higher electricity rates for end customers and secondly lower electricity generation costs due to decentralised energy generation. The lowering of the feed-in remuneration for electricity generated from renewable energy and higher taxes have also led to the more frequent implementation of own electricity generation projects as this is a way to increase added value.
