digitales Energieeffizienz-Controlling mit EnEffCo® bei KME Germany

Implementation of EnEffCo®

EnEffCo® is a digital solution for monitoring energy efficiency that has been implemented at the Osnabrück site, which comprises over 3,000 metering points, since 2021. KME uses EnEffCo® to optimize costs and save resources, in addition to monitoring and benchmarking.

The Challenge

With eight production sites in Germany, France, Italy, China and the USA, KME is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of copper and copper alloy products. To manage its energy efficiency, KME was looking for an innovative digital solution. The software should not only monitor and benchmark, but also identify opportunities for cost optimization and resource saving.

With the implementation of EnEffCo®, we successfully automated a significant portion of our monthly energy billing process, resulting in time savings and reduced error sources.”
