Funding for energy-efficient projects from ERDF and Rhineland-Palatinate

Funding for energy-efficient projects from ERDF and Rhineland-Palatinate

Tehalit, a Hager Group company located in Heltersberg, was looking for possible sources of funding for energy efficiency improvement projects when it came across the funding provided by the European Regional Development Fund and the German State of Rhineland-Palatinate.

This funding is used to support energy-efficient projects by covering up to 20% of the project costs (maximum sum: €200,000).

Tehalit is currently investing in two major financially intensive areas of innovation in the context of digitalisation, standardisation and energy management.

1. New generations of extruders that are not only digitally linked but also over 25% more energy-efficient than their predecessors. The number of types is currently being reduced from 5 to 2.

2. After upgrading to LED inserts, the lighting in the toolmaking and aluminium departments and in metal production is now over 60% more energy-efficient than before.

Both of these projects were submitted by Michael Schwarz, responsible for energy management at Tehalit, and are now being funded.
