Hall of Fame 2016

On the occasion of the 5th ener.CON Europe, the leading networking conference on energy efficiency for asset intensive industries, we.CONECT has bestowed the renowned ener.CON Europe award for the third time.

1st Place: e.Luterbach

The winning projects main target was to design and build a state of the art powder coating plant that runs environmentally and cost optimized. With the help of PinCH software developed by the University of Applied Science Lucerne, an optimized heat recovery network and energy supply system was developed. As a result 270,000 kg CO2, 120,000 Euro and 30 % energy could be saved within a year. The award jury was convinced by the high innovation level and the amount of energy that was saved. Fabian Luccarini presented the project and thanked his whole team.

2nd Place: Voith

The energy and resource efficiency project from Torsten Kallweit and Dr. Tim Dreessen from Voith achieved annual savings of 6.5 million Euro. Voith was one of the first companies in the plant and mechanical engineering sector to establish an Ecological Business Management (EBM) to obtain an economic added value by considering the ecological aspects of energy and material. A group-wide standardized green controlling process with associated integrated tools was the key to success. Every year, a total of 52,704 MWh of energy, 737,078 m3 water and 1,907 metric tons of material have been saved. Torsten Kallweit and Dr. Tim Dreessen were happy to receive the prize.

3rd Place: Continental Automotive

The third price went to Continental Automotive for the project Green Plant Regensburg, presented by Dr. Benjamin Fuchs. The ISO 50001 certified plant is one of the most energy efficient plants within the Continental Automotive Group worldwide. Thanks to a 2013 built energy center, cooling and heating is recovered and the energy consumption was reduced. The use of new air compressors and vacuum pumps led to an efficient supply network. The lighting in the production was converted to LED. Within 5 years, the KPI ‘energy consumption per product’ showed an increase of energy efficiency of more than 30 percent. A team of 30 people from different departments is the driving force for energy projects.
