Substantial savings through remote management

Varma Mutual Pension Insurance Company is one of Finland’s largest real estate owners and developers. Caverion has helped Varma to achieve energy savings since 2011 by taking care of technical maintenance and managed operations in more than 80 properties owned by Varma. Roughly 50 of these properties are connected to Caverion’s round-the-clock remote management.

Since 2011, the national energy efficiency agreement in Finland has obligated Varma to commit to 6% energy savings by 2016. 70% of the desired savings were achieved during the first two years, during which time some 350 measures aiming to reduce energy consumption were carried out.

The annual savings have amounted to approximately EUR 500,000, which is equal to the energy costs of 470 electrically heated single family houses.

The savings have been achieved primarily through adjustments of existing systems, small-scale modernisations - and through remote management.
