Even though energy consumption was already at a very low level thanks to the compact building concept, our manufacturing plant in France (TMMF) has made further reductions. They have cut energy consumption by 57% compared to 2002 levels thanks to close monitoring, smart insulation, and state-of-the-art lighting.
Moreover, TMMF is investing in renewables. Every year, 2.5 tons of CO2 are saved thanks to a rooftop photovoltaic membrane, as the one in the picture on the right. Another saving of 18.4 tons of CO2 per year results from a solar wall that heats the outside air flowing into some of the workshops. Recently, a gas boiler was replaced with a biomass boiler, resulting in CO2 savings of 1,285 tons per year.
