JÄGER relies on ener­gy management

Elec­tric­i­ty and gas price sub­si­dies help briefly

Han­nover Ener­gy Alliance: Renowned com­pa­nies from Han­nover respond to the ener­gy crisis

On 21.11.2022, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of busi­ness enter­pris­es and the state cap­i­tal of Hanover met to make a joint appeal to the city soci­ety to save ener­gy. The JÄGER Group relies on reli­able ener­gy man­age­ment and the know-how of its own employees.

A chal­lenge for the econ­o­my and society 

Ris­ing elec­tric­i­ty and gas prices threat­en inter­na­tion­al com­pet­i­tive­ness. Elec­tric­i­ty and gas price sub­si­dies help in the short term, but in the long term the state can­not sub­si­dize ener­gy. That is why the JÄGER Group is focus­ing on prod­uct and process inno­va­tions in order to halve com­mu­ni­ty ener­gy con­sump­tion as far as pos­si­ble in the next 24 months. Only if com­pa­nies, cit­i­zens and pub­lic insti­tu­tions dras­ti­cal­ly reduce their con­sump­tion, demand will decrease, which in turn will low­er the prices for raw mate­ri­als and ener­gy. Low­er ener­gy con­sump­tion and the pri­or­i­ty expan­sion of renew­able ener­gies are the pre­req­ui­sites for a con­tin­ued high qual­i­ty of life and well-paid jobs in Ger­many and Europe.

Elas­tomers and ther­mo­plas­tics are com­par­a­tive­ly ener­gy-inten­sive in pro­duc­tion and pro­cess­ing. For this rea­son, the JÄGER Group intro­duced an ener­gy man­age­ment sys­tem as ear­ly as 2012 with the aim of mak­ing pro­duc­tion at the Hanover site cli­mate-neu­tral and inter­na­tion­al­ly com­pet­i­tive by 2030. Due to the Russ­ian war of aggres­sion on Ukraine and the asso­ci­at­ed ener­gy cri­sis, the mea­sures that were planned until 2030 must be imple­ment­ed with­in the next 24 months.

Ener­gy com­pe­ti­tion and fur­ther sav­ings measures

In addi­tion to the com­pre­hen­sive ener­gy man­age­ment, the employ­ees of the JÄGER Group were also moti­vat­ed to sub­mit sug­ges­tions for fur­ther sav­ings mea­sures in an ener­gy com­pe­ti­tion. The aim is to use the know-how of those employ­ees who are most famil­iar with the process­es in JÄGER’s pro­duc­tion facil­i­ties and who influ­ence them on a dai­ly basis. As a result, numer­ous promis­ing sug­ges­tions have already been col­lect­ed in the cur­rent competition.

In addi­tion to pro­duc­tion, var­i­ous sav­ings mea­sures were also imple­ment­ed in the admin­is­tra­tive build­ings. In accor­dance with the new reg­u­la­tions for non-pub­lic build­ings, the room tem­per­a­ture was low­ered to 19°C and all non-safe­ty-rel­e­vant light­ing in the inte­ri­or and exte­ri­or areas was also switched off. Since the light­ing is basi­cal­ly oper­at­ed with LEDs, the sav­ings effect is ini­tial­ly to be assessed as low, but the sym­bol­ic val­ue is all the high­er, since cur­rent­ly any kind of ener­gy waste must be avoided!

Appeal to the community

Gen­er­al­ly speak­ing, beyond eco­nom­ic ben­e­fits, the eco­nom­i­cal and effi­cient use of ener­gy often con­tributes to greater social jus­tice and pro­tec­tion of our envi­ron­ment. This is demon­strat­ed, for exam­ple, by low­er ener­gy costs for social­ly dis­ad­van­taged house­holds or few­er emis­sions of cli­mate-dam­ag­ing green­house gas­es. As a com­pa­ny, we want to be a role mod­el for our employ­ees and fel­low cit­i­zens and make the great­est pos­si­ble con­tri­bu­tion in this crisis.

Togeth­er we can over­come the cur­rent ener­gy crisis!
