Energy efficiency optimization at Möller Bil
Möller Bil conducts automobile sales and workshop operations in its own properties at 10 locations in the Mälardalen region. Its total annual energy consumption amounts to approximately 17,000 MWh (electricity and heating). ÅF has been given the task of optimizing the company’s energy use and costs.
The goal of the assignment is to reduce total energy consumption by around 20% through the use of simple methods and cost-effective investments. The facilities will also be modified to create a more comfortable indoor climate and easier maintenance. In addition, costs will be reduced through more efficient operating agreements and correct rates. ÅF will finance all investments and then bill them out in exchange for 80% of the savings according to the model for energy cooperation. In phase 1, the existing equipment will be optimized. This was started already during the first on-site visits to the facilities. In phase 2, simple investments will be made to address direct deficiencies and shortcomings. In phase 3, more large-scale and cost-intensive rebuilding will be carried out.
In Phase 1, energy consumption has been cut by approximately 7%. Phase 2 will then reduce consumption further by around 9% compared to the base year. Phase 3 will begin after year 2 and at that time, energy consumption will be reduced additionally so that the established targets are met. The expected payback time for all consulting costs and investments required to reach the set targets is around 1 year.
