Save energy and water with Techem

In order to protect the environment it is essential to budget the energy and water consumption. Natural resources are valuable worth preserving. Techem offers both efficient solutions for water and energy savings based on years of experience. Read more about Techem's engagement to preserve natural resources in our sustainability report.

Save energy - lower costs

Each year, we measure and allocate heating and water costs amounting to three billion euros. With more than 55 years of experience in the business, we can assure that our devices and services demonstrably reduce heating and water consumption by 20 to 30 %. That is because precise measuring and billing based on the actual consumption make residents more aware and create an incentive for the careful use of heat and water. Not only do our services have a positive impact on your budget, they also protect essential global resources.

Saving water is a responsibility

Efficient water saving solutions – from Techem


Will one day drinking water become an unaffordable luxury? While water is in short supply in some parts of the world, water consumption worldwide is rising steadily: by 20% per decade in the past 50 years. This makes water ever more precious - and more expensive.

This is why it is so important to monitor the consumption of this resource carefully.  Thanks to consumption-based recording and billing and also intelligent consumption control, energy and water consumption can be lowered and costs reduced.


Facts about water

  • a human needs 2 to 5 liters of water a day to survive
  • Over 2 billion people do not have access to clean drinking water
  • 5,000 people die each day due to a lack of water
  • In 2030 nearly half of the global population will live in areas where there is a lack of water (UN estimate)

Yearly water and energy savings

  • Approx. 13 billion kWh of energy
  • 903,000 apartments could be heated with this energy amount saving
  • 3 million tons carbon dioxide emissions
  • Approx. 37million m³ water
  • 461,000 households could be supplied with this water amount
