Imtech: 'Green' energy solutions more profitable thanks to the Imtech Climate Protection Program

(PresseBox) (Mettingen, ) Gouda - Imtech (technical services provider in Europe) recently received permission from the German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt) to introduce the Imtech Climate Protection Program. This programme enables the bundled transformation of realised energy savings and reduced carbon emissions into carbon emission rights that can be traded on the European market.

Imtech CEO René van der Bruggen: 'Increasing sustainability features high on our customers' agendas. Not just in connection with their own CSR ambitions, but also due to strict EU regulations. Imtech helps to realise these objectives by thinking along about clever energy solutions that spare the environment and cut back costs. With the introduction of the Imtech Climate Protection Program, Imtech has ensured that investing in 'green' solutions has become even more profitable.'

Imtech Climate Protection Program

Within the Imtech Climate Protection Program, Imtech bundles the energy savings and reduced carbon emissions realised for its customers, transforms these into carbon emission rights and subsequently trades them on the European market. Every year, the revenue from the sale of the emission rights is transferred pro rata to the participants' accounts. This way, Imtech gives its clients a financial incentive to invest in sustainable solutions like geothermal heat storage, the generation of own energy from biomass and thermal energy.

PowerMatching City: Intelligent energy consumption thanks to 'Smart Grid'

A good example of the convergence of sustainable Imtech solutions is PowerMatching City; a project demonstrating an energy infrastructure of the future, which was launched in early March 2010 in the municipality of Hoogkerk. Within the project, the households generate their own energy thanks to a heat pumphigh efficiency boiler combination or a micro Combined Heat and Power unit that has been installed in each of the homes. To optimally use the generated sustainable energy - which is difficult to store - the project utilises a smart grid. Smart grids are decentralised energy networks that are linked to the energy network and that optimally coordinate the supply and demand of decentrally generated sustainable energy, so that as little energy as possible is lost. Imtech is a collaborative partner in the project, which - with neighbourhoods and industrial estate meeting their own energy needs - is a fine example of sustainable area development.

ICARUS

With the ICARUS project, Imtech also raises energy awareness among its own staff. In ICARUS, energy consumption is measured in employees' homes and also reduced thanks to energy conservation tips. Across Imtech, 200 employees in Europe are currently taking part in the project. Housing corporations and other nonprofit organisations have since shown interest in a project based on ICARUS.
