Climate protection and profitability in harmony from day one – only with CutPower

An IREES study commissioned by the Federal German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety and published in December 2013 determined that in the sector of medium-sized industry in Germany up to 2020, the implementation of viable measures would generate an increase in GDP of approx. 3.5 billion euros, as well as associated reductions in costs and an accompanying rise in net employment of approx. 40,000 full-time jobs.

On the basis of energy-efficiency measures, the primary energy requirement of the European Union can be reduced by two thirds by 2050. That is the conclusion reached in a study conducted on behalf of the Federal Ministry of the Environment and presented at the end of 2012 by the Fraunhofer-Institut für System- und Innovationsfor­schung ISI (Institute for System and Innovation Research). That study concludes that increasing energy efficiency offers enormous potential. At the same time, roughly 90 per cent of all savings measures would be self-financing. Through CutPower, energy costs could be significantly lowered and even result in surplus savings.

CutPower can make a decisive contribution to the planned reduction by 80 per cent by 2050 of greenhouse-gas emissions in the European Union. If all measures outlined in the above study were implemented, a further annual sum in the billions could be saved. The Fraunhofer ISI maintains that in 2050 savings would already total roughly 500 billion euros per year.

The Fraunhofer ISI has calculated that private households alone boast annual savings potential of 125 billion euros, in particular in the building and heating sectors, while industry could lower its energy bills by 100 billion euros per year by the year 2050. Only with CutPower can climate-protection targets be met.
