Energy management at the IPB comprises all planned and implemented measures to ensure a minimum energy input for the required performance.
Energy Initiative Halle (Saale)
The IPB is member of the Halle (Saale) Energy Initiative. Companies, research institutes, the city of Halle (Saale) and other institutions, together with the Stadtwerke Halle and EVH, agreed on the declaration of intent to shape the transition to alternative energy resources in a cooperative effort. Further information on the energy initiative is available at: https://energieinitiative-halle.de/
The institute had a cost increase in the area of electricity of about 47% in the years 2008 to 2012. Since further cost increases were expected due to the increase in levies, countermeasures had to be taken. By introducing energy management, it was possible to reduce media consumption by about 15% by 2019. This reduction in consumption is based on about 90 individual measures.
All members of our institute have an influence on energy consumption and thus are responsible for an efficient use of resources. Management and Board of Directors control the measures of the energy management. Since February 2013 our energy management team meets regularly once a month to coordinate the energy saving measures and to implement them in the departments. The members come from all departments and serve as contact persons for all institute employees, who are interested in this topic and want to influence it.
For further information and questions please do not hesitate to contact our energy manager Tino Körner.
