No chance for energy guzzlers

A company can optimize its electricity consumption only if it knows how much power it actually uses at a specific place. By using smart sub-meters that can be read remotely, we have a transparent overview of energy consumption in individual areas of our office buildings and depots. In this way, we can specifically target equipment that guzzles energy.

We have already fitted all DB Long Distance depots and some DB Regio depots with these remote-controlled smart sub-meters over the past few years, and DB Energie provides other customers, suppliers and electricity grid operators with the meters too.
