Case study: shared benefits in energy
This case study illustrates a new approach where the customer and supplier both receive benefits from contracting together.
Read through this page on Siemens website to find out how Siemens and Pilkington Glass used this approach for contracting together in order to ‘reduce energy consumption in glass manufacturing’. You will find that a link to a pdf with more detailed information about this case study is available from the bottom of that page.
You may also be interested in a more technical description of this type of contract, from the European Commission Joint Research Centre Institute for Energy & Transport, which is available from a link at the bottom of this page.
Do you see any problems with this approach?
Are there any situations in your work environment where a similar contract might be possible? What difficulties would need to be overcome?
