Optimo plus for higher energy efficiency

On behalf of ProKilowatt and the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), we bundle electricity-saving measures and energy-efficiency measures for industrial, commercial and service companies. The new incentive programme Optimo plus 2019 motivates companies to invest in their energy efficiency, as a way of actively and purposefully saving electricity.

Investing together to reduce electricity consumption

By participating in Optimo plus, you make a significant contribution to climate protection, as well as a sustainable investment. In turn, we identify your potential for energy efficiency and monitor successful implementation. In addition to professional support for your project, you receive funding from us, amounting to between 20 and 30 percent of the total investment.

All throughout the implementation process, from the consultation and analysis through to the monitoring and efficiency review, we work closely with partner firms, such as Harter GmbH, Vonesco Control AG, Zumtobel Licht AG and our acquisition partner Swissgalvanic.

In a straightforward way, we guide you through the administrative procedure, cut the red tape and provide financial support according to goal attainment.

How does the Optimo plus 2019 incentive programme work?

1. We conduct a rough analysis, determine your potential savings and assess your suitability for an incentive measure.

2. If necessary, we conduct a detailed analysis and identify appropriate measures.

3. We work out the terms of the incentives for savings and implementation, and approve implementation of your measures.

4. We monitor implementation and performance, and provide the corresponding financial support.

If you already have your own plan of action, we will gladly check it for you and approve it for Optimo plus if it suits one of the incentive measures. Naturally, you can also work together with a firm of your choice instead of one of our preferred partners. Such consultancies / planning firms / implementation firms can also contact us and initiate funding.

Incentive measure 1: Efficient drying

Goal: Replacement of hot-air dryers with more efficient condensation dryers.

Main target group: Swiss electroplating, aluminium and foundry companies, as well as industrial and commercial firms.

Criteria: You own a hot-air dryer and wish to switch to a condensation dryer with heat pump.

Incentive measure 2: Efficient direct current

Goal: Replacement of old inefficient rectifiers and rectifier connections with modern electronic rectifiers and optimisation of control.

Main target group: Swiss electroplating companies.

Criteria: You run an oil-cooled thyristor-controlled rectifier or a conventional rectifier with another cooling medium and want to replace it with an electronically controlled rectifier.

Incentive measure 3: Efficient lighting

Goal: Replacement of old inefficient lighting with modern LED lighting systems.

Main target group: Swiss electroplating, aluminium and foundry companies, as well as industrial and commercial firms.

Criteria: You wish to replace your current conventional lighting with a new LED installation. ProKilowatt does not approve funding for so-called retrofit LED tubes.

Incentive measure 4: Other efficient consumers (non-specific measure)

Goal: Replacement of old inefficient devices and installations with modern components/installations/systems.

Main target group: Swiss electroplating, aluminium and foundry companies, as well as industrial and commercial firms.

Criterion: Willingness to prove savings via performance measurement.

What we have achieved so far

With Optimo plus 2014 and 2015, we have already implemented successful efficiency measures for a number of different companies, making considerable electricity savings. In total, with an investment sum of around CHF 5.5 million, 55 GWh of electricity has been saved during service life, with funding amounting to CHF 740,000. We have selected some examples for you here.
