  • STEAG UHL – creating an efficient compressed air supply together

    Compressed air is one of the most expensive forms of energy. This makes it all the more surprising that in a wide variety of applications, there are substantial energy losses as a result of unused waste heat, leakage and non-optimised compressor control. Many companies have potential for significant energy savings in their compressed air systems.

    Industrial compressed air production facilities in Germany use around 16 TWh of power per year. This represents around 7% of Germany industry’s total power consumption. There is potential for optimisation of up to 25% across the entire compressed air production process. This means potential total savings of up to 4 TWh, or nearly 2 million tons of CO2, per year.

    The fact that compressed air energy consumption represents a significant proportion of a company’s total energy use frequently offers major untapped potential for savings that could be realised with a customised optimisation concept.

    We understand complex production processes

    By implementing an intelligent measurement concept with associated measures (e.g. eliminating leaks, optimising existing system configurations and units using compressed air, more efficient use of waste heat), we help you to boost your energy efficiency by up to 30%.
