ENERGY EFFICIENCY

THE BENEFITS

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.

  • Economic benefits: savings in terms of less consumption, less maintenance, and greater duration of equipment
  • Environmental benefits: less electricity consumption = fewer CO2 emissions

Indirect savings

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.

Impact on the community

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.

Tax incentives

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.

The Enersolve solution

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 intelligent device.

Enersolve improves both energy efficiency and energy quality, lengthening the life cycle of production plant equipment.

The benefits produced are not just economic; in fact, companies that introduce Enersolve into their own system contribute, significantly, to protecting ecosystems, reducing the main atmospheric pollutants and the quantity of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere.

The real challenge was that of developing a reliable and realistic energy saving measuring system – a challenge that was brilliantly met with the Enercloud platform.

Thanks to the Enercloud measuring platform, the savings obtained are contractually guaranteed.

Power Quality

  • Improvement in energy quality: reduction in plant management issues
  • Elimination of voltage fluctuation: greater load efficiency
  • Elimination of voltage asymmetry: reduction in plant losses
  • Elimination of “voltage recovery”: elimination of failures and increase in equipment’s average service life
  • Reduction of electrical stress and abnormal stresses on loads: increase in the average service life of equipment
  • Reduction in maintenance: reduction in indirect costs

Cloud monitoring

  • Continuous monitoring of energy parameters: Enercloud platform
  • Certified monitoring of energy saving: ESPRO certified solution
  • Identification and storage of abnormal events: extraction of data by Enercloud
  • Sending of alarms via text message or email: information on events and state (programmable thresholds for specific alarms)

But, in practice, what is the effect of introducing Enersolve to the system?

The graphic below, downloaded from Enercloud, shows the active power absorbed by an actual plant. The lower part with Enersolve, the upper part without.

 

In this graphic, the consumption of the system can be seen, day by day, with (green bar) or without (red bar) the Enersolve system.

The energy saving calculation system obtained from Enersolve solutions was approved by ENEA after 3 years of joint studies.

Enercloud is a cloud platform of our Enersolve “Smart Energy Efficiency Devices”.
