By improving energy efficiency in production, companies are not only able to lower energy consumption and cut costs but also increase productivity, allowing them to gain a competitive edge. There is an enormous energy-saving potential in manufacturing enterprises to be tapped if the right energy efficiency measures are taken. Among these are innovative energy-efficient technologies, enabling energy to be used more effectively while adapting industrial production to fluctuating energy levels and optimally integrating production equipment into both the manufacturing and urban environment in terms of energy.

Our energy efficiency experts offer our customers a balanced range of advisory services, from identifying efficiency opportunities in production plants through implementing tailored concepts for corporate energy management systems right up to selecting appropriate financing models.



Energy management and optimization

To consistently lower energy consumption and improve energy efficiency, Fraunhofer IPA helps companies implement energy management systems, perform energy audits and conduct energy efficiency projects.


Energy-efficient technologies and processes

By focusing on innovative technologies and processes already during planning and procurement, Fraunhofer IPA enables its customers to tap major energy efficiency potential.


Urban production

From the energy point of view, the term “urban production” means including a production plant’s environment in energy management processes. Fraunhofer IPA gives advice on concepts and technologies that help to tap this potential.


Industrial Microgrids and Energy Storage Systems

Digitalizing energy flows, industrial smart grids are the solution customers need to optimally control energy efficiency and energy flexibility in production. Fraunhofer IPA assists with development, design and implementation processes.


Energy policies, strategies and financing

Fraunhofer IPA advises on the use of technical solutions and eliminates obstacles hindering customers from implementing energy efficiency measures.
