On the occasion of the 5th ener.CON Europe, the leading networking conference on energy efficiency for asset intensive industries, we.CONECT has bestowed the renowned ener.CON Europe award for the third time. The prize honors projects that achieved outstanding performances in energy efficiency. Experts from Tata Steel, Covestro and Bosch Rexroth have formed this year´s jury that evaluated and nominated the submitted projects. Dr. Malte Homann, Global Energy Excellence Manager at Covestro (formerly Bayer Material Science) guided through the evening. The third price went to Continental Automotive for the project Green Plant Regensburg, presented by Dr. Benjamin Fuchs. The second place has been awarded to Voith, a multinational corporation based in Germany. Torsten Kallweit and Dr. Tim Dreessen were happy to receive the prize for the project Energy and resource efficiency at Voith. The winner of the evening was e.Luterbach – a manufacturer for powder coating and painting systems. Fabian Luccarini presented the project High efficient powder coating plant to the audience and thanked his whole team. The prize money of € 1,000 has been donated to the social startup Kiron.

The winning projects main target was to design and build a state of the art powder coating plant that runs environmentally and cost optimized. With the help of PinCH software developed by the University of Applied Science Lucerne, an optimized heat recovery network and energy supply system was developed. As a result 270,000 kg CO2, 120,000 Euro and 30 % energy could be saved within a year. The award jury was convinced by the high innovation level and the amount of energy that was saved. Find out more about the project in this video:

The energy and resource efficiency project from Torsten Kallweit and Dr. Tim Dreessen from Voith achieved annual savings of 6.5 million Euro. Voith was one of the first companies in the plant and mechanical engineering sector to establish an Ecological Business Management (EBM) to obtain an economic added value by considering the ecological aspects of energy and material. A group-wide standardized green controlling process with associated integrated tools was the key to success. Every year, a total of 52,704 MWh of energy, 737,078 m3 water and 1,907 metric tons of material have been saved.

The ISO 50001 certified plant in Regensburg/Germany is one of the most energy efficient plants within the Continental Automotive Group worldwide. Thanks to a 2013 built energy center, cooling and heating is recovered and the energy consumption was reduced. The use of new air compressors and vacuum pumps led to an efficient supply network. The lighting in the production was converted to LED. Within 5 years, the KPI ‘energy consumption per product’ showed an increase of energy efficiency of more than 30 percent. A team of 30 people from different departments is the driving force for energy projects

On behalf of the award winners, we.CONECT supports Kiron. Kiron Open Higher Education is a non-profit organization whose mission is to remove the barriers for displaced people to access higher education. The goal is to empower people to integrate not only on an economic level into the labour market, but also on a social level into society. The students complete the first two years online and the third year at one of the partner universities, where they obtain an accredited university degree.

The next ener.CON award will be given out in March 2017. Your contact person for further questions about the ener.CON Europe and the award:
