The constantly growing consumption of scarce resources, such as energy, is a key problem. We urgently need intelligent innovations that reduce consumption and increase efficiency. This includes not only ever more energy-efficient motors for our products, but also completely new concepts such as the DC Factory. This avoids conversion losses, utilizes synergies and better integrates regenerative generators. We not only want to support these developments, but also make a contribution ourselves.
That is why we have invested in a photovoltaic system with an energy management system and buffer storage to serve the heating and mobility sectors. This allows us to test the innovations of tomorrow on a small scale, ask new questions and find solutions. We are also looking at peak shaving in the use of energy, COP values for our heat pump and synergy effects in the intelligent control of motors on conveyor technology. By purchasing electric vehicles and integrating a charging infrastructure with up to seven charging points, we were able to make optimum use of photovoltaic power. For this purpose, we have our own
charging station and the brand aChargerwas launched.
With our ecological awareness, we were able to expand our business area to include a new branch and make the company even more future-proof. Because once the potential of sector coupling has been fully grasped, visions such as the DC Factory become much more important.
