Elektrolyse AG coats surfaces with metallic coatings, in particular for high-voltage distribution, aircraft and mechanical engineering. Almost 90 percent of the manufactured workpieces are exported directly or via customers. The company competes with suppliers worldwide and is therefore exposed to considerable price pressure.

Benefit from liberalization? Why, surely!

In the international competitive environment of Elektrolyse AG, a supply of cheap electricity is essential in order to survive on the world market. The decision to switch to a new electricity supplier was easy for the company thanks to sound advice on procurement and switching processes. Due to their individual requirements, Elektrolyse AG finally decided on a fixed-price product with planning security for several years. The actual conversion was then not even noticeable – apart from the savings that the company has made since then.

Further cost savings through photovoltaics

In order to achieve further energy savings, the company plans to produce its own solar power in the future. A photovoltaic system on the 2800 m2 roof surface of Elektrolyse AG will be able to generate up to 30 percent of the energy required in production over the next few years.

For the future, we could imagine implementing a storage solution for solar power at some point in the future.
