In the course of its strong expansion, the company drew attention to itself through intensive search for new warehouse space at the Feldkirchen site. Mayor Janson took this as an opportunity to visit Efficient Energy to learn in person what the clean cooling pioneer does.
"We are cooling and heating with the natural refrigerant water. Our technology is clean, safe and economical. We are thus driving the change towards an environmentally friendly refrigeration market," explains Efficient Energy CEO Georg Dietrich. The climate-neutral refrigeration systems called eChiller find applications in cooling of machines, industrial processes, buildings and data centers.
In addition to the question of the existence and development of new commercial areas at the Feldkirchen site, the two discussion partners also exchanged views on other topics that are currently facing both politics and business:
- Climate change: at 7%, the share of cooling in global warming is twice as large as that of global air traffic
- Exploding energy prices: Refrigeration accounts for 17% percent of global power consumption (and rising)
- Synthetic fluorinated refrigerants (F-gases): Risks in conventional chillers and EU-wide regulation for use of F-gases by 2030 (80% reduction)
- Shortage of skilled workers
- Regional suppliers and supply chains
