2014-08-13 | Any energy not used is the best way of saving the climate and your money. To do so, it may often be a good thing to get rid of old device and invest in new and energy-saving products. Primary costs may be a bit higher in some respect, but reducing your energy costs means this pays off fairly quickly.
For GreenDay, our Landshut facility singled out three energy-saving projects:
1. Saving electric power.
The past months saw 1,500 fluorescent tubes being replaced by LED lamps which consume less than half the energy of the tubes. This makes Landshut enjoy savings of about 288,000 kWh per year – which corresponds to the average power consumption of about 192 single households or €40,000 per year.
2. Less CO2 and noise.
The new crude gas truck in Landshut is extremely low in emission. Compared to a diesel truck, it emits up to 20 percent less CO2. And it makes only half the noise of a diesel truck.
3. New system.
At the beginning of the year, ep Landshut replaced their old heating system in the hazardous goods warehouse. The new system supplied by one of our customers is still in the trial phase, but the estimated annual savings already amount to 51,000 kWh – this corresponds to the average power consumption of 34 single households.
