Product Portfolio
  • Solving major tasks with expertise and efficiency.

      • HOCHTIEF Energy Management helps you to:

      • One of the most successful organizations on earth is the ant population. These tiny animals master even seemingly overwhelming tasks without losing their patience.

        Their working principle: optimum efficiency.
        This covers not only an intelligent and therefore highly efficient deployment of energy, clear communication, short distances and decisionmaking procedures, but also a sharp instinct for precise timing, team spirit and the ability to rapidly find solutions in real circumstances. With this approach, ants manage to cross deep
        chasms, master obstacles and stem heavy loads – achieving the virtually impossible, reason enough to take a closer look at this principle.

        The core business at HOCHTIEF Energy Management is the efficient use of energy – following the example of our industrious friends.

        The difference: we offer our customers a comprehensive range of contracting services and other auxiliary services relating to the supply of energy and media. We endeavour to always produce
        clear, traceable relations and keep tabs on the whole process: from the individual needs situation,
        to the conversion of energy enduse into effective energy and media, distribution and billing to the actual procurement of energy.

        Trust in us as your reliable partner for greater energy efficiency, lower operating costs and reduced environmental pollution.

        • Increase energy efficiency
        • Reduce energy costs
        • Create cost transparency
        • Improve the corporate result
        • Free up capacity for core business
        • Avoid risks for company and efficiency
        • Optimize operation and life cycle of buildings, facilities and infrastructures
        • Reduce CO2 emissions
        • Lean on a strong and highly qualified partner

        We take the weight off your back in fields whichare not part of your core business.

      • Best approach: the shortest route to your goal.

      • Efficiency also means reaching your goal without diversions, acting pragmatically, focusing on individual challenges and implementing the corresponding solution. To increase efficiency, we begin by analyzing the customer’s individual needs. Our engineers examine the existing facilities and processes, before developing end-to-end options, to ensure a reduction in energy consumption. In a second stage, we assess how effective energy or media can be best supplied and distributed for the case at hand. We identify existing energy losses and find solutions which increase efficiency for the long term. If required, we also support you in the procurement of energy.

        Our ability to provide these services with precise timing and absolute efficiency is based on our internal “navigation system”. Our long experience and the continuous exchange of knowledge within the HOCHTIEF corporation enables us to rapidly identify the best solution for your situation.

  • Efficiency, intelligence, transparency. The underlying system counts.

      • Products and services: an intelligent system for tailor-made solutions.

      • Independently working team players: these minute insects have mastered the art of harmonizing two contradictory factors. Above all, they understand how to invest their own efforts in achieving the best result for all: a successful role model also pursued by HOCHTIEF Energy Management. The energy efficiency approach
        permeates the entire company: the controlling unit profits from improved figures, the environment from lower CO2 emissions and the management from greater capacity for core business while marketing enjoys the enhanced corporate image.

        Contracting means the fulfillment of contractually defined promises such as effective energy savings, lower costs and emission reductions. The investment is either refinanced through the energy savings or by the supply of effective energy and media.

        HOCHTIEF Energy Management is your onestop partner for a wide variety of services. Our contracting models ensure that the required effective energy and media, such as heat, cooling energy, air, water or compressed air are made available cost-effectively and reliably.

        Our products and services create added value for our customers – throughout industry, in hospitals and public property, large complexes and facilities.

        Energy-saving contracting:
        We invest across the sectors in state-of-the-art technology and share the savings with our customers. The refinancing of the required measures is secured by the savings achieved. This guarantee also applies when the customer handles the financing of measures alone.

        Energy supply contracting:
        We supply the required effective energy and media at fixed prices, from facilities upgraded and operated by our company. We manage operations and guarantee savings through costeffective prices for the entire duration of the contract.

        Full service contracting:
        Full service contracting presents an extended type of conventional contracting which also includes other services, e.g. infrastructure services for production sites and properties.

        Technical facility management:
        We provide technical services to achieve and maintain economically and environmentally friendly operation of technical systems.

        Energy services:
        Other services cover energy procurement, meter management and billing (ENBIS©). We help to maintain transparency.

  • Experience, expertise, teamwork – we combine all three qualities.

      • Experience meets innovation: ready for new projects.

      • Where a diversity of services are united, the capacity exists to master even major challenges. The same applies to the ant population. The key factor is to utilize the strengths and expertise of the individual and to invest this so that the whole team profits. The structures at HOCHTIEF follow this principle. HOCHTIEF Energy Management belongs to the Services unit of the HOCHTIEF stock corporation. We have been responsible for
        planning, financing and realizing energy and media supply measures since 1987. The HOCHTIEF stock corporation provides integrated services for all life cycle phases of infrastructure projects, properties and facilities, with a view to creating and then enhancing sustainable, future-oriented value. We cover the entire process chain from development and planning to construction and logistics, portfolio management, operation and management.

        We work on a modular basis, for an optimum interconnection of all services. This comprehensive project perspective facilitates efficient management to the benefit of our customers.

        Always on board: the combined expertise of an international construction provider, synergies and decade-long experience, which automatically flow into each new project. Solutions for diverse projects and challenging targets pave the direct and therefore shortest route to the customer. And our experts? These are always available, motivated and committed to solving your tasks and working together with you to scale new heights.

        This gives you the peace of mind that you need. Rely on HOCHTIEF to continuously enhance the values you entrust to us.

  • Contracting

  • More efficiency. Guaranteed.

  • Our contracting portfolio helps customers to cut operating costs, operate their energy systems more efficiently and reduce CO2 emissions. We plan and realize efficient solutions for your individual challenges and then monitor the ongoing facility state and energy consumption. As contractor, we bear the efficiency guarantee risk. Our full service contracting option provides additional technical and infrastructure services on top of the basic portfolio.

    • Energy saving contracting
    • Energy supply contracting
    • Full service contracting
  • The reliable path to contracting

  • To enable us to guarantee our customers maximum planning security, we have added a number of upstream steps to the actual contracting process. The aim here is to permit accurate advance analysis and long-term assurance of the project cost efficiency.

    Rough analysis / potential analysis
    A rough analysis is used to establish realizable cost-cutting and optimization potential on the basis of the present energy consumption, facility condition, conditions of use, facility capacity utilization and the required investment.

    Cost-effectiveness assessment
    Together with the customer, we examine and assess the economic viability and feasibility of the project. If the general concept does not conclusively show that the identified savings potential and the joint implementation of the contracting project are not economically realizable or will not yield reasonable profits, the project is not continued. The customer does not incur any costs for this stage of the project. If, on the other hand, the identified savings, the optimization options and the related investments are in line with the customer's expectations, the project enters the next phase.

    Detailed analysis and cost-savings concept
    In the course of the detailed analysis that follows, the data available is examined in more detail and supplemented by collecting further details. On this basis, we develop a cost-savings concept and a financing plan to cover the investment, if required; define guaranteed savings, for which we bear the efficiency risk, and develop a binding offer. If the results of the rough analysis are not confirmed by this in-depth examination, the project again ends at no cost to the client.

    Contract conclusion
    If we are commissioned to realize the project, the fee agreed in advance for the detailed analysis and concept is deducted from the overall project costs.
