- Energy saving: saving on bills
- Reduction in peak of power used: recorded in the bill
Energy consumption and waste reduction is increasingly important. Energy efficiency measures are gaining increasing recognition as a tool for attaining a sustainable energy supply, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving the safety of the supply, and reducing the costs of imports, but also for favouring the competitiveness of the country’s economy.
Energy efficiency constitutes, therefore, a strategic priority.
Low energy quality generates disruptions and malfunctions that have an impact of almost 4% of turnover (source: Leonardo Energy).
Energy efficiency is not limited to lowering electricity consumption.
Our Enersolve solution improves power quality and, as a result, improves performance and the life of electric and electronic equipment, also generating a significant indirect saving, lowering both maintenance costs and those of replacing worn equipment.
A smaller environmental impact frees resources to be able to invest in other sectors, for the benefit of the people and regions on which the hidden costs of pollution fall.
Guarantees on environmental benefits confer value to the companies and bring additional environmental and economic advantages.
Many countries have implemented policy incentives for energy efficiency with tax benefits.
In Italy, for example, as part of the “Industria 4.0” plan, a tax incentive was introduced that reduces taxes as a result of investments in capital goods aimed at energy efficiency.
Investments in energy efficiency solutions entail a fast return on investment and enhancement of the company image. Continuous monitoring via the Enercloud platform makes it possible to verify equipment performance and the plant’s electric parameters in real time, thanks to the implementation of alarm signals via text message or email.
Ortea Next, always attentive to innovation, could not step back from this challenge and, thanks to its solid expertise acquired over the years by engineers in the Research and Development department, it has developed the Enersolve energy efficiency smart device.
The adoption of solutions for energy savings entails significant benefits in terms of return on investment and corporate environmental sustainability.
ComEC is the ideal solution for commercial, residential, and SME applications.
Enersolve and Powersines improve both energy efficiency and energy quality by extending the life cycle of production plant equipment.
The benefits produced by energy efficiency are not only economic, in fact the company that installs this equipment in its plant contributes significantly to the protection of ecosystems, reducing the main air pollutants and the amount of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
The on-board instruments make it possible to read and record the values of all the plant’s electrical parameters, processing energy-saving data in real time. The method used is based on the ESPRO protocol principles approved, after three years of joint studies, by ENEA (the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development).
The ESPRO protocol provides for a dynamic savings measurement: it is not based, in fact, on measurements before and after the implementation of energy efficiency measures but rather on a continuous and dynamic measurement of savings parameters.
We began with a quote by Galileo Galilei: “Measure what can be measured, and make measurable what cannot be measured”.
The ESPRO protocol takes into account continuous variations in the two main factors that contribute to the final result: the power source and the combination of the load mix. Only continuous measurements of these quantities, which constantly and significantly vary, make it possible to determine, with certainty, the efficacy of the measures.
The measurements are carried out every 15 minutes and, in the 30-second measuring window, the saving is frozen for 10 seconds, thus obtaining an actual difference between the instantaneous power and what the system would have used without the Enersolve installation. The measurement is repeated for the machine’s entire service life.
The total energy saved during the day is the sum of the individual measurements that repeat the method involved in the IPMVP (International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol) 96 times per day and exceed the VDE standard requirements, intercepting the change in load mix sample by sample.
The platform is able to show the telemetry of the measurements collected by each machine as a time series. In this way, the user can analyse their behaviour by comparing different measurements on the same graph so as to highlight any anomalies.
Data is stored on databases specifically designed for logging time series, allowing rapid dashboard display or exportation to spreadsheets.
