Energy transition, efficient use of resources, and the switch to renewable energies are topics that the BURGER GROUP has been pursuing with great vigor for years. We do this for the sake of the environment, but also to reduce costs.
For over 75 years, we have operated our own hydroelectric power plant, which generates over 650,000 kWh of electricity annually.In addition, three photovoltaic systems provide around 220,000 kWh of electricity annually at peak times. By way of comparison, this energy generated from renewable resources could supply around 300 two-person households with energy for an entire year.
But extracting energy from natural resources does not automatically mean using it efficiently.For this reason, the BURGER GROUP operates an E-Power system that makes it possible to reduce total electricity consumption by around five to six percent. With an annual electricity consumption of just under six million kWh, this means a reduction of a further 300,000 kWh per year. Independently of this, all BURGER sites in Germany produce with green electricity.
Our energy management system is certified under DIN 50001.
