Mission Climate Protection

Exemplary: Daimler AG operates the plant in Rastatt with a Berlin, July 20, 2011. Daimler AG is progressing on climate to lead by example. An innovative energy concept has been implemented in the Mercedes-Benz plant in Rastatt. The environmentally friendly geothermal plant of the plant uses two heat pumps. It serves the groundwater as a source of energy, which is fed into the heat pump by extraction wells. Here, incyte expresses very clear opinions on the subject. To heat the heat pump drawing power from the ground water, to cool the energy supplied to the groundwater. This climate-friendly system work saves around 5 million kilowatt hours of energy and about 800 tonnes of CO2.

Energy efficient and sustainable use this is in regard to the current EU directives on climate not only for consumers, but also for companies of great importance. Heat pumps operate up to 75 percent with renewable energy from the environment: soil, air or water. Compared with fossil heaters, heat pump has proven about the greatest CO2 savings potential. This is a study to the CO2 emissions comparison of the (Department of energy economy and application technology) if TU Munich. An efficient heat pump saves already today around half of CO2 compared to a fossil heating”, so Karl-Heinz Stawiarski, Managing Director of the German heat pump Association The use of heat pumps therefore makes an important contribution to the implementation of the EUKlimaschutzziele. Because in addition to the reduction of CO2 emissions, the heat pump works very efficiently. The goal of improving energy efficiency by 20 percent, that Europe has set itself for 2020, to be achieved by the new proposal for a directive. Our proposal aims, to make our use of energy in everyday life more efficient and a more effective control of their energy consumption to help citizens, public institutions and the industry, which should ultimately lead to a lower energy bill”, explained Gunther Oettinger, Commissioner responsible for energy matters, a press release of June 22, 2011. That is so Heat pump not only with regard to the reduction of CO2 emissions and the integration of free environmental energy, but also in regard to the energy consumption that is more environmentally friendly than conventional heating systems. The Daimler AG acquires a role here and creates thus an incentive for more large companies carry out energy audits and heat pump systems
