In their business field “renovation of existing buildings” they replace oil / gas heating systems through generating geothermic energy with or without the combination of solar energy and they install a cooling and heating system which is later fixed to walls and covers. Thus they play a crucial part in reducing CO2. In their strategic business unit “new buildings”, they provide total energy solutions. Finally, they offer strategic and operative consulting services to optimize energy efficiency and reducing CO2 along the supply chain. They also help their customers to raise funds. Following a systemic approach, they optimize the complete system energy pile / deep drilling heat pipes – heat pump – solar / photovoltaic unit including process measuring and control technology. As they integrate their strategic project partners right from the beginning in the planning phase of a construction project they reduce interfaces and increase efficiency thus they offer professional project management in combination with a systemic (consulting) approach.
