CO2 reduction of over half a million tonnes
CO₂ intensity is a measurement whereby CO₂ emissions can be compared, independently of growth. CO₂ intensity shows effective CO₂ reductions in comparison with simultaneous CO₂ emissions.
So far, the CO₂ intensity of EnAW participants has improved continuously throughout the second commitment period under the revised CO₂ Act and Kyoto Protocol (2013 to 2020). The year 2018 witnessed CO₂ reductions of 551 615 tonnes thanks to a range of measures. Overall CO₂ emissions still amounted to 4 068 381 tonnes in 2018. CO₂ intensity for the year 2018 is therefore 88.3 per cent.
THE MEASURES IMPLEMENTED SINCE 2013 CUT CO2 EMISSIONS BY 551 615 TONNES IN 2018.
More than three million MWh of energy saved
Energy efficiency is a measurement whereby energy consumption can be compared, irrespective of growth. Energy efficiency shows how much energy has been saved in comparison with simultaneous energy consumption.
The energy efficiency of EnAW participants improved steadily over the second commitment period. Thanks to a range of measures, 3 273 599 megawatt hours of electricity and heat were saved in 2018. At the same time, 36 078 727 megawatt hours of energy were consumed. Energy efficiency for 2018 is therefore 109.9 per cent.
THE MEASURES IMPLEMENTED SINCE 2013 YIELDED SAVINGS OF 3 273 599 MEGAWATT HOURS OF ENERGY IN 2018. OF THAT AMOUNT, ELECTRICITY ACCOUNTED FOR 1 136 842 MEGAWATT HOURS.
