The German Energy Agency’s Compressed Air Campaign is the successor campaign to “Efficient Compressed Air”, aimed at industrial companies, small businesses and the plant engineering sector and using brochures, tools and internet portals together with extensive press and public relations work. The aim is to inform the respective agents about the energy optimisation of existing compressed air systems and the energy-optimised production of new compressed air systems. The campaign focuses on topics such as the provision of specialised technical information on compressed air systems, from compressed air production to heat production and life-cycle costs, as well as e-learning in the framework of a tool for the energy optimisation of compressed air systems. Since 2008 this measure has been an integral part of the “Energy Efficiency Initiative” umbrella campaign, more precisely the “Efficient Electricity Usage in Trade and Industry” section. The campaign has indirectly strengthened market penetration of energy-efficient compressed air systems and their components and companies have been increasingly sensitised to this issue. In addition, growth in demand has boosted the development of innovative energy-efficient compressed air systems.
