Energy use

Amazone operates two combined heat and power plants with an electrical output of 600 kW in Gaste and Altmoorhausen which produce both electricity and heat. The electrical energy is used to power the machine tools, and the heat is used as process heat for the paint shop. This results in an efficiency level of more than 90 % – hardly any other power plant can achieve this. We were awarded a certificate for energy management according to DIN ISO 50001 in 2014.


The primary objective here is an annual energy saving of 3%, which we have always been able to achieve or exceed so far. Our trainees take part in the Energy Scouts project of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce and thus contribute to the efficiency and sustainability of our company at an early stage. In 2015, they received an award for their campaign “Ohne DICH geht es nicht” (“It won’t work without YOU”) as part of a competition organised by the Mittelstandsinitiative Energiewende und Klimaschutz (SME initiative for energy transition and climate protection).

  • Lighting has been converted to LED technology
  • Power consumers with a high stand-by consumption have been replaced

The result: We save a total of 2 million kW/h a year.
