Concept / Feasibility Studies
Concept and feasibility studies provide comprehensive answers to questions of energy supply, distribution, and generation, forming the basis for evaluation and decision-making.
- Assessment of new installations Integration and expansion of production facilities
- Process expansions and conversions
- Conversion of primary energy systems to sustainable energy supply systems in view of carbon neutrality goals.
- Solutions for new or expanded installations
Components of a concept study can include:
- Site and needs analysis Construction concept
- Planning and design
- Coordination with regulatory authorities
- Investment cost budgeting
- Reporting and documentation of results
Energy and process systems need to be reconsidered over a longer-term cycle due to political and economic changes. This could involve switching to alternative fuels or the adoption of different technologies, such as combined heat and power. In addition to heat supply, we also examine other energy sources, such as compressed air, refrigeration, or ventilation technology. We place a particular emphasis on low-carbon or carbon-neutral energy sources and their efficient utilization.
In conjunction with a feasibility study or an energy concept, an assessment of the economic viability of various plant variants is conducted using our proprietary economic analysis tools.
Potential facility expansions, retrofits, and improvements are identified, presented, and evaluated in the course of a study. Subsequently, renewal concepts are implemented.
The feasibility analysis enables:
- Verification of the feasibility of the task
- Definition of potential conditions (or key criteria)
- Solution variants
- Creation of documentation for the analysis.
