About us

At HE Consulting our main expertise is to help industrial clients achieve significant energy savings at their manufacturing facilities. Our approach is different from that of our competitors and from what most people believe energy management is about. The methodology we developed has proven to deliver for our clients large energy savings within only a short time period. 

How can we support you?

However, we are not satisfied with merely identifying a savings potential for our clients and put it in a paper report. ISO 50001 certification or an energy audit with HEC means that in addition to certification preparation or reaching compliance we will not stop supporting you until the initially defined savings potential is delivered and until you see this in a reduction of your energy bills. We call  our unique methodology QUEST, standing for quick energy savings technique. 

What makes us different?

  • We make energy visible in a way that you will understand. Different from conventional monitoring of consumptions we teach you to work with energy data in a new way. 
  • Among other, we focus on the human factor in energy management and help you with introducing and then fostering the concept of „energy culture“ in your company, meaning a paradigm shift where the responsibility for energy consumption does not lie any longer exclusively with the energy manager. 
  • We use and deploy rapid and effective data tools and methods but will stay with you as long as it takes until you have acquired these and can use them independenly without our support. 
  • We will ask you to pay for our services only after it is apparent that they will deliver the results and objectives that we have defined together at the beginning. This makes the program self-financing

What do our clients say about working with us?

Years of experience and results to be proud of 

Our company was launched as a start-up in 2013 a after this only short time on the market we have been able to convince such large players as Skoda-Auto or Knorr-Bremse about the benefits of our QUEST methodology for industrial energy savings. In many instances initial pilot programs have led towards long term cooperations over several years with our clients.

Surely we did not start from zero. We feel fortunate that our key employees were able to gain valuable experience from working at the leading international consulting firm ERM (Environmental Resources Management) in assignments across the world. This also explains why our second area of expertise lies in environmental and health and safety consulting. 

 

Brussels and Prague

In 2015 we expanded our activities to Belgium where we work with several renowned companies including Audi Brussels. Martin Policar leads our Brussels office. 

We care

Each year 10 % of our profit goes to support the international movement and organization „The Hunger Project“, that focuses its effort strategically on ending hunger and extreme poverty in the world. With each and every euro saved in your company through our program you will not only improve your company’s bottom line but also empower those, who need it most, to lift themselves out of their poverty.   

Our support for the Hunger Project is not a mere coincidence. This unique organization involves people suffering from extreme poverty in areas of chronic hunger not as recipients of benefits but as the main change agents to end hunger. Hungry people are not a problem but the key to the solution. Similarly, we have learned that people are not the problem in energy management, and only a complete (and expensive) automization can lead to savings. Instead the focus on the human element in energy management and the involvement of our client’s staff to play a vital part in energy management is what makes our program such a good value and delivers sustainability. Involving people at multiple levels and training them with tools that deliver quick yet solid results is what works in energy management just as in ending hunger.

The owner and CEO of HE Consulting has been involved as a fundraiser for the Hunger Project for many years in his free time and strongly advocates the principles of empowering people for any positive change. You can learn more about the Hunger Project, their activities and how to become personally involved here.
