Industrial companies operate in the most diverse areas and produce a wide variety of goods. However, what they all have in common is that they consume a high amount of energy – regularly.
In the last years, energy costs in Germany have been skyrocketing and energy supply has turned into a complex task for industrial companies. Hence, exploiting cost reduction potentials has become a top priority. There is room for savings in the areas of surcharges, network costs and energy taxation, but also in the field of CO2 costs and energy procurement. An important option for industrial companies is the development of company-owned generation systems to meet their own demand for electricity and steam on-site and in a cost- as well as resource-efficient manner. Using an energy management system is another means to reduce costs. And last but not least, energy procurement conditions may well be improved.
There is a growing demand for advisory services concerning energy supply networks at airports and industrial sites. Unless the generation facilities are classified as so-called customer facilities in line with the existing energy law, an exhaustive set of rules supplementing the generation and supply obligations that companies must observe when operating area networks that are so-called closed distribution networks or even public supply networks. In this case, an effective regulation management is vital for operators of industrial sites and airports.
What is more, privatisation and outsourcing projects of airports and industrial sites often give rise to a wide spectrum of sector-specific issues, ranging from company structuring (corporate and tax law) to public procurement issues relating to tenders for supply contracts and other project contracts.
BBH provides consulting services in all of these areas. Here, our clients include representatives of the chemical, metal, paper, glass and food industry but also operators of industrial sites and airports.
