What Does Energy Efficiency Mean?

Posted by Dalkia Solutions on Jan 15, 2021 5:15:27 PM

Energy efficiency. It’s probably a term you’ve heard tossed around as an idea to improve your facility’s bottom line and CSR, but what does energy efficiency mean? Essentially, it means using less energy to perform the same task. In this case, that means reducing fossil fuels and reducing your business’ carbon footprint by making current energy sources more effective.

According to the Environmental and Energy Study Institute, energy efficiency is one of the most cost-effective ways to clean the air we breathe while simultaneously reducing energy costs. Dalkia is here to help your business accomplish both tasks, by helping to implement a path to sustainable energy.

Reduce energy costs by making your business energy efficient

It’s not just about going green; it’s about saving you some “green,” too. Making the energy transition to a more sustainable solution pays off in the long run for multiple reasons, not the least of which is reduced energy expenses. In fact, some of our customers have found that greening efforts end up paying for themselves, dramatically lowering operating costs and increasing a facility’s value.

An added bonus to investing in the sustainable future of your business is that your brand image among consumers will be positively affected.

How your business can achieve energy efficiency in 2021

Dalkia offers multiple services to help achieve energy efficiency goals:

  • Digital services like building controls can assess real-time data for more efficient operation of your facility.
  • Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, uses natural gas to produce heat and electricity more efficiently than traditional central power plants.
  • LED lighting and controls can lower your electricity bills by using more efficient bulbs, and incorporating sensors to shut off lights when rooms or areas aren’t being used.
  • HVAC systems are often the largest energy consumer in an industrial building, but upgrades can address and solve efficiency problems in refrigeration, boilers and ventilation systems.
