Optimization of incidental energy costs

The so-called ancillary energy costs, which go beyond the pure energy price, actually account for a large part of the total energy costs of companies. It is worthwhile to take a closer look at this issue, especially in order to be able to reliably take advantage of the various, in some cases considerable, relief options that are of existential importance to companies. This sometimes requires a multitude of complex steps in a constantly changing and increasingly confusing regulatory environment, and various deadlines must be met. Our experienced and well-versed experts always have an up-to-date overview of the regulatory situation and will be happy to advise and support you with regard to the optimisation of your ancillary energy costs, including communication with the relevant authorities and other third parties, insofar as we are permitted to do so by legal regulations, so that you can concentrate on your core business, in particular on the following topics:

  • Special equalisation scheme EEG (BesAR)
  • Privileged treatment in the case of grid-side levies (KWKG levy, offshore levy,
    § 19 StromNEV levy)
  • Special forms of grid usage
  • Energy and electricity tax – reliefs and exemptions
  • Refund of concession fee

Furthermore, a review of your energy bills by our experts will usually lead to further savings, as on average one in ten bills is incorrect.

For legal services and/or tax advice, the provision of which is reserved to lawyers and/or tax advisors according to legal provisions, we cooperate, for example, with various law firms renowned in the energy and environmental sector, such as Ritter, Gent & Collegen and Hoffmann Liebs, which competently handle their legal and/or tax issues directly.

Please do not hesitate to contact us in case of need.
