Energy Efficiency

Climate and energy policy are becoming ever more intertwined.

This concerns Germany with the energy turnaround policy, the German Renewable Energies Sources Act and the Energy Services Act, and on the European level with the triple goal of CO2 reduction, energy efficiency improvement and renewable energy development.

This is why FutureCamp started years ago to expand its core competencies in emissions trading into the areas of energy and energy efficiency.

Today, we provide a wide range of services for the energy sector, industry and SMEs and can carry out energy audits according to DIN EN 16247-1 in accordance with the Energy Services Act with three BAFA-listed auditors of our own.





Integrated Management Systems

FutureCamp helps you to utilize the synergy effects of integrated management systems in your company.

Management systems for quality, environment, occupational safety and energy are often introduced in companies as parallel systems. In addition, they are not always optimally implemented, which reduces their effective further benefit. Integrated systems, on the other hand, make a significant contribution to increasing a company's profitability, meeting quality requirements and legal regulations, and achieving environmental and climate protection goals.

Our service portfolio for you includes:

  • Introduction and further development of management systems according to DIN EN ISO 50001, DIN EN ISO 9001, DIN EN ISO 14001 and EMAS
  • Supporting the conversion to standard revisions as well as the integration of management systems
  • Conducting workshops and employee training
  • Conducting context, opportunity/risk and stakeholder analyses
  • Conduct internal audits.
  • Development of key figures and targets

Angelika Berghald has been working as a consultant at FutureCamp Climate since 2016, primarily in the areas of energy, management systems, LCA and carbon footprinting. As an experienced project manager, she supports clients in all issues relevant to these areas. As a recognized representative for quality, environment and energy according to ISO 9001, 14001 and 50001, she supports clients in the introduction and further development of management systems and carries out internal audits in companies.

Energy Management Systems DIN EN ISO 50001

Since 2009 FutureCamp has assisted its customers in the implementation and further development of energy management systems.

Following the reform of the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), the introduction of energy management systems in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001 remains essential for industrial enterprises with power consumption rates above 5 GWh that want to continue drawing benefits from a reduction of the EEG apportionment in the special compensation scheme.

According to the amendment to the German Energy and Electricity Tax Act, a cap on the German eco-tax – the so-called “Spitzenausgleich” – can only be granted to companies that generate energy savings. They must introduce an energy management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001 or an environmental management system in accordance with EMAS.

We offer very individual support services for the efficient implementation and further development of an energy management system in your company.

Our services include the following work packages:

  • Taking stock of the existing situation by collating usable data and defining the energetic starting point
  • Carrying out an energy assessment and documentation of optimization measures
  • Drafting a set-up and process flow description, including documentation in a management handbook
  • Drawing up energy performance indicators to monitor achievement of energy goals, etc. according to the requirements of ISO 50003/ 50006/ 50015
  • Execution of internal audits and training of internal auditors
  • Supporting the external certification process

"Energieeffizienzmaßnahmen spielen seit vielen Jahren sowohl wirtschaftlich, als auch klimapolitisch eine wichtige Rolle. Energieaudits und Energiemanagement-Systeme sind aus unserer Sicht ein entscheidendes Vehikel zur Erreichung internationaler Klimaschutzziele und bedürfen entsprechender Aufmerksamkeit."

Dr. Christian Pacher deals with operational and technical issues in the context of emissions trading and supports our customers with the introduction and further development of energy management systems.

Life Cycle Analyses (LCA) - Product Life Cycle Assessments

FutureCamp supports you in the preparation of a life cycle assessment in all four steps in accordance with the DIN EN ISO 14040/14044 standards.

Life cycle analyses (LCA) or product life cycle assessments describe and evaluate the impact of products, services or processes (e.g. transport) on the environment, taking into account the entire life cycle ("from the cradle to the grave") and the various environmental impacts (e.g. greenhouse effect, acidification, eutrophication, destruction of the ozone layer, soil pollution, resource consumption). Life cycle assessments are used, for example, to compare the sustainability of products, to optimise the supply chain, to identify hotspots or to avoid shifting environmental impacts to other areas.

In addition to selecting the appropriate impact categories, defining the scope of the analysis and the product system is an essential basis for collecting the necessary data and analysing and interpreting the LCA results. In addition to selecting the appropriate impact categories, defining the scope of the analysis and the product system is an essential basis for collecting the necessary data and analysing and interpreting the LCA results.

  • ideciding which products and services are essential for your environmental performance and how these can be analysed and evaluated,
  • the professional and technical development of a life cycle assessment for the selected products or services,
  • establishing the processes so that a regular review of your environmental and sustainability performance is possible,
  • preparing and communicating the information in a target group- and standard-compliant manner and
