Case Study

erío accelerates energy efficiency

Task

Potential reductions in energy consumption and CO2 emissions were to be identified at enterprise rent-a-car on the basis of an assessment of a representative branch. Five measures could be developed that boasted an amortisation period of less than two years. enterprise rent-a-car intends to incorporate the results into its Sustainability Strategy and implement them across its network of branches.

Objective

As part of the “20% energy efficiency 20% cost savings” sustainability vision, a representative branch with vehicle preparation facilities was to be examined to establish the existing potential for reductions in energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Clarification of how the achieved results could be used to create synergies was also to be investigated along with the identification of prerequisites for a rollout across the entire network of branches.

Consultation

The consultation concentrated on the areas of lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation and building shell as well as the optimisation of the IT structure and water consumption. In respect to lighting, various scenarios were developed that took the corporate identity into account.

Result

Overall, five measures could be developed within the scope of the pilot project with amortisation periods of less than two years. In terms of liquidity, a needs matrix tailored to the requirements of the company was also developed. This enables enterprise to implement the measures step-by-step and facilitates a refinancing via the respective savings made. The corporate cash flow is therefore not excessively burdened.

Result

Overall, across all assessed areas, the following results could be achieved:

erío developed five measures to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. enterprise rent-a-car intends to implement the results across its network of branches.

 

Besides the cost savings, the identified reduction of CO2 emissions will comprise a part of the company’s Sustainability Strategy and be used as a tool for acquiring and retaining customers. A rollout of the measures across the entire branch network is in the pipeline.
