The EE ENERGY ENGINEERS GmbH is proud of the wide range of knowledge that its staff in all key topics in the fields of energy and energy efficiency have, as well as in the comprehensive national and international project experience for over 20 years. The preservation and development of these expertise is a key corporate goal.
Our holistic approach to advice and support our customers is based on the combination of our many areas of expertise. Especially for the goal-oriented cooperation between our experts in the fields of renewable energy, mobility, energy conversion and distribution, and energy efficiency in buildings.
- Renewable energies
Because of the exhaustion of fossil fuels (crude oil) , the increased use of renewable energy sources (biomass, geothermal, solar, hydropower and wind power) is a key component of practical climate protection and a key issue for the success of the energy transition. Moreover, renewable energies represent an economic factor which is already contributing significantly to the stabilization and growth of diversified energy economy.
In recent years, enormous technical progress has been achieved in the field of renewable energy. Thus the cost of such plants have dropped significantly, however the technical capacity and practical experience with the technology, has clearly increased. Despite the fact that the initial market incentive program of the German Federal Government expired in the field of photovoltaics in 2014 and the funding opportunities thus no longer are at the original level, it still is an interesting support scheme for several installations of photovoltaic systems in many cases. It is crucial that for every investment a detailed analysis of evaluation of existing funding schemes is needed.
For any technical solution in the renewable energy sector we have our own team of experts, which have built up in the past 20 years a wealth of experience in terms of technical integration and efficiency.
- Energy Efficient Buildings
About a third of the provided final energy in Germany is used for heating up buildings or water. Simultaneously, there is a large potential in the construction sector to cut energy costs, preserve resources and to contribute to climate protection. Cuts of energy requirements by more than 70 percent were achieved by already realized redevelopment projects. - Incurred under the premise of efficiency investments. The importance of the energy performance of buildings is particularly evident in currently playing in the comprehensive policies and programs of the Federal Government.
Equally important is an energy-efficient and climate-friendly design of new buildings. Again, we were able to demonstrate the technically and economically feasible modern building technology in many practical examples.
To assess the energy efficiency of buildings or solidity to plan, it requires both comprehensive knowledge in the area of the building envelope, as well as in the field of plant engineering. In addition, it it crucial to take into account the effect of the interaction of all elements.
For this reason we combine our competent building efficiency architects and engineers so as to here again we can afford a comprehensive consultation in detail.
- Energy Conversion and Distribution
About 559 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity have been generated in Germany in 2015. Approximately 49 percent of this amount was produced by power plants using fossil energy sources and about 15 percent from nuclear power plants. Within the aim of the Energy transition, Renewable Energies as well as smaller and decentralized generation units will become more important. However, about 60 GW of conventional power plant capacity will still be necessary for a safe supply in 2050.
Future requirements for fossil fuel power plants regarding efficiency as well as environmental compatibility and durability, will increase significantly. At the same time, they have to ensure security of supply and work economically. On the other hand, the power grid will distribute electrical energy and in addition to that, adopt other tasks such as energy storage and communication between buyers and sellers.
Our employees have many years of experience in various fields of energy conversion and distribution. From the initiation and support of (research) projects, the management of clusters and networks (design, construction and implementation), through the creation of local / regional energy concepts to the conceptual development of instruments to support public institutions, we are an advisory capacity.
Mobility is the backbone of a modern industrial society. However, the mobility sector in particular faces growing challenges. Buzzwords such as traffic jams in urban areas by intense rise of traffic, establishment of low-emission zones to limit the baneful environmental impacts of transport locally, or strong increasing fuel prices as an expression of limited resources, characterize the need for action.
Numerous players such as Traffic planners or the automotive industry try to meet these challenges with modern transportation systems like inter-modality as well as new and much more efficient vehicles and drive concepts.
For over ten years, our experts in the field of mobility work both in technological developments (modern fuels, fuel cell technology, electric vehicles, etc.) as well as on innovative transport concepts, especially in urban areas. A central focus of our work is the combination of transport and energy infrastructure to enable and promote/support the implementation of renewable energies in the transport sector.
