By 2030, emissions in industry are to be reduced by at least 58% in Germany. Renewable energies, battery storage and the flexibilisation of electricity demand are the determining components for achieving the long-term target. As a leading marketer of power flexibility, ESFORIN alreadymakes a significant contribution to CO2 reduction in Germany - without having to wait for the further expansion of renewables or storage technologies.
TÜV Rheinland certified the considerable CO2 reduction by ESFORIN and its‘ customers through ESFORINs marketing of available power flexibilities in intraday trading. In addition to the calculation method, the auditor TÜV certifies the total CO2 savings of over 197,000 tonnes for the year 2021. The savings are comparable to the emissions of over 760,000 flights from Düsseldorf to Palma de Mallorca for one person or of approx. 30,000 medium-sized cars with an average of 20,000 kilometres driven annually in Germany per year.1
The CO2 reduction is achieved through the intelligent use of flexibilities of ESFORIN customers. Depending on the electricity exchange price and thus the availability of renewable energy, e.g. industrial or biogas plants are ramped up or down to make room for renewable energies in the grid. The aim is to integrate as much renewable energy as possible. This not only saves CO2, customer also contribute to grid stability.
ESFORIN customers can have their annual CO2 savings calculated and issued as a certificate by TÜV Rheinland on the basis of the certified calculation method.
