Envidatec GmbHThe Envidatec GmbH has more than 10 years experience in the investigation of the energy efficiency of buildings and facilities. Special attention is given to ensure that the optimisation potential is viewed holistically and measures sustainable effects. Another topic with almost all customers is to investigate economic aspects of the use of renewable energies. The Envidatec company specializes also in energy management with innovative technical concepts and solutions to permanently reduce the energy consumption in buildings and companies. Reduction of the energy consumption by customers results in a significant contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions. Due to good cooperation with the Hamburg and Vienna universities, already in the past Envidatec GmbH participated in various research projects. It also is managing an Energy Efficiency Network (EEN) in Northern Germany. The headquarters of Envidatec are located in Hamburg. There is a partner company in Vienna and a branch in Ekaterinburg.
