Thermography for buildings and plant

locate energy leaks and save costs

Thermographic measurement of a municipality: saving heat energy, a major energy factor, greatly helps reduce its carbon footprint.

innogy thermography process: locate energy leaks and save costs

Building insulation plays an important role in cutting heat energy levels. But substantial efficiency gains can also be achieved without fully refurbishing the building envelope. To do so, it is necessary to identify weak points in the masonry.

Because all objects give off heat energy, the thermography process is ideally suited in this regard. The measurement results can be clearly seen on infrared images, which provide information to analyse energy performance.

The measurement service:

  • innogy helps municipalities and their inhabitants to measure the energy efficiency of their buildings. Once the measurement is done, we draw up a building report, including informative images and comments containing specific recommendations.
  • Thermographic measurement is done by a professional service provider during the winter to make the most of the seasonal conditions.

Advantages for municipalities

  • An active contribution to climate protection
  • Positive public perception
  • Financial outlay for the municipality is minimal
  • Citizens are mobilised and sensitised to the need to save energy

  • The inspection is performed under normal operating conditions, with no need to shut the system down.


Photovoltaic thermography from innogy: fault detection service for solar power systems

Solar power system at a school: thermography from innogy can rapidly detect and fix faults.

The measurement service:

  • innogy makes it possible to quickly locate possible faults at a cell or module level, as well as wiring errors. Once the measurement is done, we draw up a building report, including informative images and comments containing specific recommendations.
  • We use a pallet truck or an innovative hexacopter to inspect the system while in operation

Advantages for municipalities:

  • There is no impact on the effectiveness and economic efficiency of the system.
  • The inspection is performed under normal operating conditions, with no need to shut the system down.
