BEA – Germany
The Berliner Energieagentur GmbH (BEA) is a private Energy Service Company. The Agency was founded in 1992 on the initiative of the Berlin House of Representatives to open up energy saving potentials and to promote the use of renewable energies. Equal shareholders are the State of Berlin, Vattenfall Wärme AG, GASAG Berliner Gaswerke Aktiengesellschaft and KfW Bankengruppe.
Innovative projects that save energy costs and reduce carbon dioxide emissions have been developed and implemented for public and nonprofit facilities, real estates and building companies, industry, trade and service companies as well as for hospitals.
The Contracting Department of Berliner Energieagentur is specialised in supply with small and micro combined heat and power units (CHP). As contractor, the agency finances and operates these units. The agency has equipped more than 40 sites in Berlin and its surrounding with highly-efficient energy centres in commercial, residential and public buildings. Twenty of these objects are equipped with small CHP installations that produce ninety percent of the electricity that is required at the site and 100 percent of the heat base load.
The Consulting Department of Berliner Energieagentur provides support for the development and implementation of a modern energy management. The array of services provided includes the preparation energy concepts and surveys, advanced training and qualification measures and facility management.
Since 2003 the International Know-how-Transfer Department of Berliner Energieagentur transfers the agency’s knowledge on efficient use of energy to other countries.
