Carbon Footprint Disclosure Obligation under CSRD

What is the carbon footprint disclosure obligation under CSRD all about? Who is affected, and how can you proceed? – EnExpert explains Who is affected by the CSRD? The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), a European Union directive on sustainability reporting by companies, has been in force since 5 January 2023. For some companies, this […]

Advanced energy management software

In a world increasingly concerned with sustainability and efficiency, advanced energy management software has become a necessity for organisations.

Energy efficiency in the EU

The European Union (EU) is constantly increasing its efforts towards more sustainability and independence from energy sources from third countries. The European Green Deal initiative targets a cut of greenhouse gas emissions of 55% by 2030 by increasing the share of renewable energy production, but also by fostering energy efficiency.

What is an energy management system (EMS)?

Everyone is talking about energy management systems at the moment. But what is it all about? How does an EMS work? And what advantages does it bring with it? EnExpert explains!
Energy Management 
Energy management describes the management, influencing and monitoring of the energy consumption of an entire building or even an entire company. 

Energy management is used when you want to reduce energy consumption. Energy saving measures can be taken by a targeted recording of the energy flows. These are becoming more and more popular due to rising energy prices.
Advantages of energy management 
Consequently, energy management offers several advantages. 

Three reasons for energy management!

More and more companies are implementing energy management. But what are the advantages of energy management and how useful is it really? EnExpert explains!
First, energy management allows a company to accurately record and display energy flows. This can help a company uncover irregularities and energy hogs. In addition, a company can develop energy-saving measures based on the energy flows. All this leads to significant energy and cost reduction.

The advantages and disadvantages of a photovoltaic system

A photovoltaic system is a renewable energy source that converts sunlight into electrical energy. At the moment it is becoming more and more popular among private individuals and companies. But is the purchase of a photovoltaic system worth it? EnExpert lists some advantages and disadvantages that should be considered when deciding on such a system.
Sustainable energy source: photovoltaic systems use the sun’s energy, making them a sustainable energy source that is independent of fossil fuels.

Cost-effectiveness: although the initial cost of a photovoltaic system can be high, it can be very cost-effective in the long run because energy production is free and operating costs are minimal.

Low maintenance: photovoltaic systems require little maintenance and have a long life span, making them a very reliable energy source.

Saving energy in communities: How energy management and energy management systems can help

In times of climate change and rising energy prices, it has become increasingly important for municipalities to increase energy efficiency and reduce costs.
Saving energy in municipalities can play a crucial role in this. But how can municipalities optimize their energy consumption? In this blog post, EnExpert explains how energy management and energy management systems can help reduce energy consumption in municipalities.
Energy management – what is it?
Energy management refers to the systematic planning, control and monitoring of energy consumption in a company or, in this case, in a municipality. It involves optimizing energy flows and consumption and improving processes for generating and using energy. The aim is to reduce energy costs and at the same time reduce environmental impact.

Photovoltaic system in energy management

More and more private persons, hotels and companies rely on photovoltaic systems.
However, there is often a lack of targeted control and use of the electricity generated in order to use the photovoltaic system efficiently. An energy management can help here. How? EnExpert explains!

The photovoltaic plant 

The photovoltaic system is a renewable energy source that generates electricity by converting sunlight into electrical energy. This type of energy generation has increased greatly in recent years and is now one of the most important sources of renewable energy in the world. In energy management, photovoltaic system plays an important role as it provides sustainable and cost-efficient energy supply.

Energy efficiency in buildings

Energy efficiency in buildings is of great importance, as buildings are responsible for a significant share of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
Improving energy efficiency in buildings can help reduce energy consumption and associated costs, while also reducing CO2 emissions

There are many ways to improve energy efficiency in buildings. One way is to improve the building envelope, for example by using thermal insulation and energy-saving windows. Heating and air-conditioning systems can also be improved by using energy-efficient technologies such as heat pumps or solar collectors.

Another option is the use of renewable energies, such as solar energy or biomass. This can help reduce energy consumption while also reducing CO2 emissions.
