TÜV SÜD’s exhibit at Hannover Messe focused on the introduction of its newly developed “Energy-Efficient Systems and Installations” certificate.

“Plant producers that deliberately focus on energy efficiency when designing their systems will now be able to provide their customers with convincing documentation of their efforts,” says Frank Schröter from the Energy Systems Department at TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH in Dresden. “In the certification process, our experts assess the energy efficiency and the extent of potential savings generated by new plants and systems. They compare the current status with the potential savings resulting when the technology in use undergoes optimization.”

During this process, not only the plant’s technical components must demonstrate their energy efficiency, but TÜV SÜD’s experts also investigate whether the plants continue to be energy-efficient in later operation by monitoring a range of different operational statuses and modes of operation. The assessment incorporates the technical and economic framework conditions and costs throughout the plant’s entire life cycle. TUV Rheinland appraises, tests and certifies technical equipment and products according to international quality standards and then registers those in compliance.
