Objectives and Strategy
The Berlin Energy Agency was founded in 1992 as a private limited company on the initiative of the Berlin senate with the aim to identify energy saving potentials and to facilitate the implementation of renewable energy sources. Equal partners of the Berlin Energy Agency are Deutsche Ausgleichsbank (public law corporation), Bewag plc. (utility) and the State of Berlin.
Innovative projects that guarantee the reduction of energy costs on the one hand and reduction of CO2-emissions on the other hand have so far been developed and realised for industrial plants, small and medium-sized companies, hospitals, housing companies as well as for public and non-commercial institutions.
The Berlin Energy Agency acts on local and regional level as well as internationally as a project co-ordinator in the framework of various EU-supported projects.
The Berlin Energy Agency has two main scopes of business:
- Energy Supply Services
The Berlin Energy Agency offers consultation in development and realisation of advanced energy management, which comprises
- Analysis and concept development
- Planning and call for tenders
- Award of contract and project controlling
- Monitoring and evaluation
- Training and qualification
Consumption and costs are reduced by
- Rational use of energy
- Cogeneration of heat and power
- Renewable energies
- Energy-saving construction
- Integrated traffic concepts
As an operator the Berlin Energy Agency takes over the financing and planning, the installation and operation, the control and accounting of energy supply at its own risk. The services comprise
- Combined heat and power/district heating
- Photovoltaics and solarthermal plants
- Cooling and pneumatic systems
Our experiences as an operator secure the know-how needed for the concept development in our consulting division
