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.

Support the active and decarbonised mobility of my employees

Promote soft mobility within your company

In order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, minimising the use of the vehicle fleet and promoting soft mobility alternatives is crucial. This measure aims to reduce the company’s carbon footprint by reorganising the company’s general mobility.

Considering the country’s special situation in that public transport is free, employees should make more use of it by changing their consumption habits.

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.

Hall and workshop heating

Adaptations for heating halls and workshops

Company halls and workshops, often characterised by large open spaces and high ceilings, present a particular challenge when it comes to installing an energy-efficient, targeted heating system. The ideal heating system for halls must therefore be able to heat the different work areas individually and produce heat at the right height.

Halls and workshops have specific heating requirements due to their size and use. It is therefore essential to carry out a thorough requirements analysis before installing a new heating system.

Optimising the cold production system

Controlling the operation and running costs of your company’s cold production system

Cold production is used to cool a room or an element, preserve food products, control the temperature of a process, or activate air conditioning.

Optimising the performance of components and their use leads to significant reductions in electricity consumption. In addition to the cold production unit, this also includes the distribution system and the cooling system.

Optimising the operation of existing cold rooms

Keeping your company’s cold rooms running smoothly

In food production and related sectors such as catering, sales and gastronomy, respect of the cold chain is essential. Cold rooms are essential for establishments handling large quantities of food. The electricity consumption of this equipment is very high, especially during the summer months. It is therefore crucial to optimise its use.

The approach described below helps to optimise the use of the system.

Installation of a new domestic hot water (DHW) production system

Changing your domestic hot water system

The use of domestic hot water varies from company to company. In some cases, it is used for sanitary installations and cooking, while in others, hot water is used for manufacturing or to assist in the production of materials or services. As a result, it is important to put in place the right solution, tailored to the specific situation.

Below is an approach that shows the stages and benefits of changing your domestic hot water (DHW) production system.

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.
