Agriculture

For agricultural enterprises, energy costs often add up to between 5% and 20% of total operating expenses. Smarter energy use, sustainable business development and intelligent procurement drive savings for the agricultural sector.

Agricultural business and energy management

Agricultural businesses can influence their energy expenses in three different ways.

  1. Procuring electricity and gas at favourable times
    This is COMCAM’s No. 1 expertise. By smartly analysing the energy market, we can procure energy in better ways.
  2. Consuming less energy
    Any kWh you don’t use is the cheapest kWh. This can be achieved through excellent insulation of buildings and more energy-efficient business operations, for example, using LED lighting.
  3. Generating your own energy
    You can do this through solar panels or windmills. This will make you less vulnerable to energy supply and price fluctuations as an agricultural enterprise. Any self-generated kWh will earn you the most by not having to pay network costs and energy taxes.

Earning money through sustainable energy generation

An agricultural organisation can make money through the following sustainable energy generation methods:

  • Proceeds from green certificates
  • Incentives for sustainable energy production (or netting arrangement for small consumers)
  • Feed-in compensation (via feed-in contract/PPA)
  • Imbalance compensation (grid stabilisation)
  • Avoiding procurement by using sustainably generated energy yourself

Client case horticulturist

This horticulturist managed his own energy portfolio. Depending on price evolution, he sold his procured gas with the expectation of repurchasing it later during a price dip. But this didn’t work out.

Your energy-related challenges

Each sector has its specific challenges and requirements regarding energy consumption. This also applies to the agricultural industry. Do you recognise the following questions?

  • Can I better align my energy consumption with my energy supply?
  • Will my energy supply remain steady in the future?
  • What will I save if rates are clicked smartly?
  • Does it make sense to switch from gas to electricity now?
  • What opportunities does sustainable development present for my business?

COMCAM answers these questions and, if you want this, helps you improve your energy situation. We do this through Energy Portfolio Management. We also offer advice tailored to your agricultural enterprise.

Do you have more than one connection?

It is increasingly common for agricultural companies to have more than one connection on the same plot or registered parcel. As an agriculturalist, if you combine and/or merge these different connections administratively, you may calculate the total consumption and register that amount all at once.

Regarding legal obligations and energy tax set-offs, the connections are counted as a single connection. COMCAM takes care of energy tax refunds. An average dairy or arable farmer can rapidly yield benefits of up to € 12,000 over five years.
