Energy Efficiency Act Obliges the Public Sector to Save Energy
Municipalities and Public Institutions to Become Role Models in Sustainability Management
With green.screen, Public Sector Organizations Get Ready for the Energy Efficiency Act and Smart City
The Energy Efficiency Act still exists only in draft form, but it could become a central guideline for sustainability-oriented energy and environmental management in the future for public-sector bodies, among others. There is already pressure to act as a result of the Renewable Energies Heat Act. Since 2009, it has explicitly required the public sector to use a proportion of renewable energies in buildings that are being newly constructed or renovated. On the other hand, municipalities are required to record and document GHG emissions in accordance with the uniform municipal accounting standard BISKO.
In short - the public sector is to be trimmed to sustainability at full speed. After all, the legislator sees them in a pioneering and exemplary role in climate protection.
Saas-Based Sustainability Platform for Consumption Monitoring
Beyond legal requirements, all companies and organizations have a strong economic interest in countering the sharp rise in energy prices. The simplest means is to consume energy as sparingly as possible. In particular, the indispensable heat supply offers leverage through intelligent heat utilization. Great cost pressure also weighs heavily on indoor swimming pools, for example, which are operated by local authorities in many places.
Economical energy consumption requires consumption monitoring, because this creates consumption transparency. Only what is measured and documented can be improved in the long term. This is where green.screen, the SaaS-based sustainability platform from Arvato Systems, comes in.
For Whom Is green.screen Suitable?
- Municipalities: administration, various offices, schools, swimming pools, public transport, building yard, waste collection, recycling yard, street lighting, etc.
- Counties: Administration, various offices, etc.
- Institutions of the federal states: administration, offices, district governments, courts, police, state enterprises, etc.)
- Federal government facilities: Federal government properties (e.g., government buildings, federal military sites, railroads, postal service, KfW), federal agencies (e.g., labor, BNetzA, foreign trade), federal services, courts, etc.
Regardless of where the public sector bodies are located or what their function is, the green.screen sustainability platform enables them to play their exemplary role in achieving climate protection goals in a holistic manner. Thanks to the platform approach, all relevant data can be collected, aggregated and evaluated. This is done on the basis of the highest IT security standards and is DSGVO-compliant.
