dena 2018 Energy Efficiency Award for MeteoViva and Fraport

Industry & Regulatory News, Company News, Energy Management and Conservation, EMEA
MeteoViva and Fraport are the proud recipients of a Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena) 2018 award from the German Energy Agency.


Despite its modern, state-of-the-art headquarters building, Fragport AG achieved a 19 per cent reduction in energy-related operating costs after adopting a digital solution created by MeteoViva - an accomplishment that won both companies the prestigious national award.


As the winners of the "Energy Efficiency: From Clever to Digital" category, the companies were also recognised for their intelligent application of data in improving the efficiency of building technology, following a 20 per cent reduction in carbon emissions within two years of the implementation of the new system - an achievement that was all the more remarkable as Fraport's HQ building at Frankfurt Airport is already certified to Platinum standard by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).


Commenting on the award, Dr. Stefan Hardt, MeteoViva managing director, said:

"The fact we managed to achieve such significant savings in a building constructed according to already excellent environmental standards demonstrates the potential of our predictive approach." 

The award also affirms Fraport's on-going commitment to sustainability which is enshrined in a commitment to reduce emissions across the group by just under 50 per cent before 2030.


As Dr. Stefan Schulte, Chairman of the its Executive Board, explains:

"Reflecting our commitment to operate as a responsible corporation, this goal represents a significant part of our contribution to protecting the climate.


"The partnership with MeteoViva is an invaluable milestone in our endeavour to further improve the energy efficiency of our buildings, facilities and processes."


Fraport is already planning to introduce MeteoViva's system in its other buildings.
