Good reasons for EnAW participation

  • Cutting energy costs

    On average, an EnAW participant reduces its electricity costs by roughly 13 000 francs per year. Participation pays off where annual energy costs are 20 000 francs or more.

  • Be assisted by professionals

    Our roughly 100 authorized energy specialists from across Swiss ensure that every enterprise receives cost-effective efficiency solutions from a single source.

  • Reclaim CO₂ tax and network surcharge

    By concluding an EnAW target agreement, enterprises can request the target proposal for the refund of the CO₂ tax and the network surcharge.

  • Exemption from cantonal detailed provisions

    To implement the cantonal large-scale consumer model, our consultants draw up specific efficiency and CO₂ targets for each enterprise or for an energy model group.

  • Implement individual measures

    On the basis of cost-effective energy-saving potential, we formulate energy - and CO₂ reduction targets and develop a customized list of cost-effective measures for each company.

  • Benefit from support programmes

    We maintain a number of partnerships in Switzerland so that you can benefit from a variety of support measures on offer in the field of energy efficiency.

«Working with the EnAW keeps us constantly abreast of the latest statutory or technological changes and of where we can obtain what types of funding.»

Six steps to lower costs and sustainability

  • 1

    Energy check-up at the enterprise

    The EnAW consultant looks at the enterprise for energy savings potential. Amongst the things analysed are building services, the building envelope and the production process.

  • 2

    Company-specific efficiency measures

    Based on the information from the energy check-up, the EnAW consultant suggests appropriate efficiency measures. The measures are guided by the cost effectiveness principle. The company decides when to implement which measures.

  • 3

    Concluding a target agreement

    Based on the measures catalogue, the company management and the EnAW consultant determine how much energy and CO₂ the establishment should save. The savings target is written into a target agreement.

  • 4

    Implementing the measures

    The enterprise itself implements the measures step by step. The EnAW's consultant is on hand to provide help and advice.

  • 5

    Annual monitoring

    Each year it is verified whether the agreed target has been met. The enterprise documents its own energy consumption and the measures taken in a simple, web-based tool.

  • 6

    EnAW label «CO₂ & kWh reduced»

    If the outcome is positive, the enterprise receives the EnAW label «CO₂ & kWh reduced».

«With the energy model we aspire to the highest standards in a complex energy management process while efficiently exploiting any economic savings potential.»
