Target audience: The division, Energy systems, works with energy optimizing studies towards the national and regional energy administrations as well as municipalities. By Spring 2003, more then 50 energy system studies had furthermore been carried out for public authorities. Other targeted customers are energy companies such as district heating and power generating companies. Another target group are industries with heavy industry consumptions, for which energy saving studies and energy optimisation studies are carried out. Also the efficient use of energy within the building and build environment sector is part of the target group of Energy system division.
