(Smart) Energy Efficiency Services

(Smart) Energy Efficiency Services –  new beginnings in the market and in politics?! This question was formulated by MPW in conjunction with DENEFF during a joint congress event. Experts from the energy efficiency (services) sector took the opportunity to attend this meeting in great numbers.

First Dr. Johannes Franck, a lawyer at Schürmann Wolschendorf Dreyer of Berlin, presented the ramifications of the European General Data Protection Regulation on the use of data for Smart Metering. Karsten Ahrens, a partner and lawyer at MPW Legal & Tax, then went on to present ideas for (smart) energy services in the housing industry. Afterwards, Stefan Scherz of engineering services company Ingenieurdienstleistungen IDL, presented the competitive tendering model of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in the context of electrical energy efficiency. In his keynote speech, Stefan Besser, the Head of the Division “Energy Efficiency Policy and Rational Use of Energy” in the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy, discussed current political developments and plans with participants. Next, Ruth Offermann of Prognos AG, expanded on the development of the market for (smart) energy services in view of relevant studies. This was followed by a presentation by Ralf Schade of Enoplan Ingenieurgesellschaft für Energiedienstleistungen mbH, in which he put forward the view that smart measurement services can provide a basis for additional business models in the energy services sector. In this way, analysis of non-uniform consumption patterns for additional services is facilitated. Dr. Stephan Theis, Managing Director of econ solutions GmbH, made the observation that a picture is worth a thousand words, meaning that potential sources of energy savings can be quickly and easily identified from a load profile. In the afternoon, Georg Wilke, Project Manager at the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, presented the results of the E-Carflex Business project, which was funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI). Following this, Leon Gielen of Delta Energy & Environment, Edinburgh, gave an account of the highlights of the "Energy Services Innovation Multi-Client Study 2015".  Objectives, requirements and practical examples of energy efficiency networks, which may also be an interesting business domains for energy services providers were discussed by Dr. Dirk Köwener, Managing Director of LEEN GmbH (among other things, supporter of the Lernenden EnergieEffizienz-Netzwerke. In conclusion, Anna Färger, Managing Directors of MPW Consulting GmbH, and StB Kathrin Neumeyer, Partner at MPW Legal & Tax, presented the MPW study entitled "The Energy Services Market until 2022", which sheds light upon the constraints that have an impact on the market from the perspective of energy service providers and how future market development might look.

As a conclusion to the day, the key points to take away are: the market is experiencing new beginnings. Policy wants to move with it. Energy providers can't hide in their comfort zone – as efficiency providers, smart players will increasingly be able to tap into the market to an ever greater extent and win over new customers. The sector needs to act!
