Case Study


The goal at ONE COLOGNE was to identify potentials in operation, to reduce costs, and to implement savings in energy and CO2. At the same time, a modern and demand-oriented control system was to ensure a permanent high level of comfort in the building. Both aspects contribute the AEW‘s ESG strategy.

46 700 € annual cost savings (2,23 €/m²/a)
237 MWh annual energy savings (11,36 kWh/m²/a)
66 t CO2 annually reduced emissions (3,13 kg /m²/a)
