1 Energy Transparency: Bridging the Gap Between Huge Energy-Saving Potentials and Their Actual Realisation by Stakeholders in Large Organisations EFR Meeting June 25th, Berlin
2 In this Presentation eco-taxes & their alternatives saying hi to an astounding market deficit the charm of energy-transparency
3 Prices Do Matter
4 Guessing Real Instrument Costs but: political cost is high
5 An Astonishing Market-Deficit on the one hand: Multi-billion-spending on small environmental improvments (e.g.: cars) on the other: enormous and ecomically viable conservation potentials in the consumption of energy, water, etc. remain almost untouched – since decades Are prices and eco-taxes the wrong approach?? No but: In key segments of the economomy, these incentives still dont reach the relevant actors!
6 The Problem Energy measurements are too sparce and too centralised. Cost centers mostly pay their energy bills in a socialised manner with no relation to a user-pays principle. Purchase departments consider the sticker price of an investment, not the life-time cost. Facility managers usually feel no real incentive to conserve energy for their clients. etc. Energy-cost related transparency and incentive systems lack on the lowest level of large organisations.
"Radical Energy Transparency" - Creating a New Quality in Energy Conservation -
8 Root of the Idea Perceived need for energy transparency foundation of DEZEM, February 2003
9 Background Today: large conservation potentials abound in the distributed consumption of energy (often %) yet, surprisingly little is being done DEZEMs Theses: conservation options and success monitoring must become extremly easy to understand for top management and everyone else involved technical and behaviour-based measures are equally important the issues must reach their target groups emotionally!
10 DEZEMs Contribution technologies for monitoring – en masse easy-to-use transparency, for professionals, top management and unskilled workers: detailed/relevant/realtime/mouse-click information in money terms - not in physical terms only clear-cut success-monitoring for all acticities new services based on complete energy and cost transparency development of incentive systems & stories for reductions in the cost of energy, water, etc.
11 realtime internet analysis (here: office building with typical base-level consumption above 50% of long-time total)
15 Office fridge: -62% (target temperature adjusted)
16 some DEZEM hardware elements for data measurement and transfer
17 dezem clients Wuppertal Institut für Umwelt, Klima und Energie, Wuppertal Axel-Springer-Verlag, Hamburg Ifu, Hamburg / Uni Lüneburg Otto Versand, Hamburg Bewag AG, Berlin PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Frankfurt a.M. IBS GmbH, Bensheim FH Pforzheim / LOFO GmbH, Weil am Rhein egs Plan GmbH / Siedlungswerk, Stuttgart Deutsche Telekom AG, Darmstadt Kreis Rendsburg / Energiestiftung Schleswig-Holstein, Kiel DaimlerChrysler AG, Stuttgart Schools in Duisburg and Vilshofen IGS, Braunschweig / Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Arbeit, Berlin Deutsche Messe AG, Hannover Nestlé AG, Hamburg Reemtsma / Imperial Tobacco, Berlin others
18 Usual Project Steps Step one consumption patterns of the clients office buildings or production facilities, on one attractive platform – in realtime via inter- or intranet benchmarking and definition of priorities for step two Step two details according to set priorities: building sections, machines and – if necessary – down to the individual wall outlet; all on the same platform Step three development and implementation of cost-cutting energy strategies (load- and consumption management through technical measures modified use patterns, cost- center billing, etc.)
19 Conclusion emotionally attractive Energy Transparency is able to resolve the above market-deficit bridges the gap between saving-potentials and actual success brings life into the issue makes energy costs a matter of choice Thus, smart energy transparency should lower the political cost of eco- taxes and catalyse progress toward climate protection.
