Since the first energy crisis in 1973, TCKI has been active in the field of energy cost savings in building-ceramic production plants. We use a combination of activities to reduce energy costs, such as:
TCKI has performed the annual energy monitoring within the ceramic industry for some time now based on European tenders for RVO NL. Energy reports for the Dutch government are drawn up based on these figures.
In addition, we have facilitated Energy Efficiency Plans for many years, including recently for 20 building-ceramic production plants in Belgium and 40 building-ceramic production plants in the Netherlands. Building-ceramic production plants use this information to determine their energy saving possibilities for the coming years.
This approach uses the combined efforts of TCKI´s measuring group and advisory group. We can also advise other sectors – outside of the ceramic industry – in the field of energy.
