Purchase of electric utility vehicles

Electric mobility, a key element in the decarbonisation of your company

In order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, replacing internal combustion vehicles with electric vehicles is crucial. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions linked to the transport of people and goods keep rising within the European Union. This concerns all types of vehicles, and a transition is necessary to meet national and European targets.

Purchasing these vehicles in principle requires the installation of one or more electric charging station(s) and can be supplemented by the installation of photovoltaic panels.

Key steps and aspects to consider when planning and implementing this change are outlined below.

Energy savings on IT equipment

How to reduce electricity costs through intelligent use of IT equipment

The growing use of IT equipment inevitably leads to an increase in energy consumption, whether due to the execution of software applications, communications via LAN/Wi-Fi networks, etc.

The link between IT equipment and energy consumption is not directly visible, as electricity consumption is not dissociated from the other electrical installations available within the company.

Carrying out a sustainable IT diagnostic enables company managers and employees to optimise their digital environmental footprint and consumption.

Electricity savings thanks to server infrastructure

How to reduce electricity costs thanks to your company’s server infrastructure

In most companies, the need for a server room has become a matter of course. Unfortunately, information on the energy consumption of the technological equipment used is not necessarily available prior to installation. IT infrastructures require a lot of energy and represent high costs, which are generally accepted as they are. However, there is great potential for savings.

With a view to optimising the server infrastructure, the following steps indicate a recommended analysis approach.

Optimising a company’s lighting system to save on electricity consumption

Energy savings: lighting, a key element in energy consumption in the workplace

Lighting accounts for around 10% of electricity consumption in buildings. The potential savings are quite varied and depend heavily on the condition and management of the lighting system. In order to unlock the full potential, this measure proposes a range of optimisation measures, from simple practical initiatives to a complete overhaul of the lighting system.

Installing a charging infrastructure for electric vehicles on company premises

Electric mobility, a key element in decarbonising your business

Electric cars are part of the solution to successfully decarbonising your company’s vehicle fleet. It is also essential to set up a suitable charging infrastructure within the company so that the logistics of charging can be managed internally. For greater autonomy, the system can be combined with a solar power installation.

Installing photovoltaic panels on company roofs

Photovoltaics: an environmentally and financially interesting alternative for your company’s electricity production

A photovoltaic installation enables you to produce renewable electricity and to decouple part of your electricity costs from market price fluctuations. Beyond self-consumption, there are other support mechanisms that can represent an interesting economic model, such as the guaranteed feed-in tariff or the market premium resulting from a call for tenders. The installation can be financed from your own funds or by a third-party investor, who can also take care of its planning and completion.
