The industrial output of French companies has fallen by 14% in the past 10 years. At the same time, energy bills have gone up by 11%. The figures speak for themselves. Energy efficiency is not just an environmental challenge: it is also an excellent way for industry to hone its competitiveness.
Our innovative solutions can effectively reduce energy bills in industry.
More about energy services for industry
According to Bruno Lechevin, Chairman of the French environment and energy management agency (ADEME), French industry could shave a total of 20% off its energy bills by 2030 through more efficient energy use, innovative technological solutions and staff training. And that is just an average; in some sectors, such as food processing and mechanical engineering, the figure could be as high as 30%. By curbing energy consumption, industry will also significantly contribute to the fight against global warming.

Industry could cut its energy bill by 20% by 2030
Dalkia manages 2,000 industrial sites in France, helping customers to reduce their energy bills in two ways:
1 - Unlocking energy savings
By optimising use of industrial utilities to reduce consumption (of steam, hot water, cooling, chilled water, compressed air, vacuum environments, controlled atmospheres, etc.) and by supplying these utilities with optimal energy efficiency to reduce related costs.
We help companies to reduce their energy use through a range of integrated services including individual assessments, streamlined supplies, O&M contracts, major maintenance and refurbishment work, and more. We also offer remote solutions to manage the energy performance of utilities through "Synapps", based on a digital network that enables real‑time data collection and analysis by experts, who can then request that work immediately be carried out by technicians on site where needed.
2 - Recovering energy sources that would otherwise be lost
This is vital. Factories give off heat. Yet in most cases that heat is simply lost. We recover it for use either elsewhere in the factory or off site to supply other plants, homes or public buildings. In industry, recovered heat can be re-used either on site to unlock energy savings or off site to create an additional source of revenue. These solutions also provide a seamless fit with the circular economy model promoted by the energy transition.
