Energy Management

The application of electric energy and domestic gas in large quantities has led Georgsmarienhütte GmbH to concern with proper energy management at an early stage so that all activities in minimising the use of energy are bundled.
Thus, Georgsmarienhütte GmbH was the first steel mill in Germany to be audited according to ISO 50001.

In Which Areas can Energy and at the same time Energy Costs be saved?
what constricts Energy Saving and what can everybody do to save Energy?

With this questions the Georgsmarienhütte expert team in the area of energy management is concerned. They arrange that energy politics and energy saving goals are brought into reality. Plant and department managers are responsible for the implementation of energy saving goals.

Opportunities to save energy are available in every area: Energy saving is twice as beneficial: On the one hand it saves costs and on the other hand it reduces environmental burden caused by energy usage.

An appeal for employees to engage in energy saving is i.a. provided by the internal suggestion system for improvements. 
In the year of 2010 the employees submitted 60 suggestions for energy saving with an overall saved amount of 27.000 euros. As an extra premium the submitters of the implemented improvements received a voucher for energy consulting in their own homes.

In addition the following activities already took place:

  • Energy education of 750 employees
  • Training of two employees to internal energy management auditors.
  • Energy savings through elimination of leakages, optimisation actvities and supply of district heating.

To Ensure our Location and to work against increasing energy costs Georgsmarienhütte GMBH has set the following goals:

  • Reduce demand for energy
    Through an all-embracing and continous data collection of all energy carriers the processes are analysed according to their demand for energy and appropriate adjustements are induced.
    Peak demands are reduced and essential energy provision are optimised.
  • Increase energy efficiency
    Through application of the best available and economically arguable technology we constantly increase the energy efficiency of machines and facilities. Operating times are reduced and adjusted to demand as well as the automation level of facilities is increased.
  • Energy saving affects us all
    Through involvement of all employees into the processes of energy management an extensive motivation to support the activities in reducing energy demand and increasing efficiency is created. Everybody can help and has good ideas according to the saying: "Every little helps."
