Innospec has been using EnEffCo® at the Leuna Industrial Park since 2016 for targeted load management to reduce power grid usage fees. EnEffCo® continues to be used for integrated energy monitoring solution to enhance flexibility and efficiency.
Innospec Leuna GmbH is a manufacturer of various specialty chemicals. The company’s high pressure industrial compressors are a significant source of electricity demand in the manufacturing process. To reduce energy costs, the company sought to take advantage of a special regulatory provision: companies that have 10 GWh of demand during at least 7,000 hours per annum qualify for significantly lower grid usage fees. To fulfill this requirement, the company realized it needed advanced energy management and monitoring software.
ÖKOTEC first performed a comprehensive assessment of the company’s production processes and technical systems, in part by conducting on site measurements.
Using power demand forecasts generated by the EnEffCo® solution, ÖKOTEC developed a targeted load management strategy.
As implemented in the EnEffCo® solution, the strategy allows the company to avoidor delay the activation of interruptible loads, thus optimizing power demand.
