Knorr-Bremse, headquartered in Munich, Germany, has signed a collaboration agreement with E&C Consultants. The global market leader for rail and commercial vehicle braking systems will be supported by the energy consultancy firm to shape, develop and implement its energy procurement strategy at a global level.

With more than 100 years of experience, Knorr-Bremse pioneers the development, production, marketing and servicing of state-of-the-art braking systems in over 30 countries around the world. E&C will be providing support starting in Europe and the Americas.

Among the energy services that E&C Consultants will be providing to Knorr-Bremse are robust energy risk management, data management from the local to the global level, exhaustive portfolio monitoring and analytic market intel, in addition to ad hoc updates on regulatory frameworks affecting the energy consumption of all supported countries.

By partnering with E&C, the global market leader for break systems for rail and commercial vehicles joins other large businesses from the automotive sector that the consultancy firm has been advising for almost 20 years over all continents.

“Thanks to the support provided by E&C, we will be prepared if the energy markets will turn volatile again”, said Stefan Evers, Director Indirect Purchasing at Knorr-Bremse.

Jens Lievens, Co-CEO at E&C Consultants, said “I am proud to announce our partnership with Knorr-Bremse. Their global profile and commitment to excellence align with E&C's values. I am confident that our teams will provide the best possible energy market expertise to support Knorr-Bremse in achieving their ambitious goals, especially when it comes to protecting them from market volatility with our energy risk management as well as keeping their global energy data under control with ePoint, our unique data management platform”.
