If the launch of energy efficiency initiatives has, in recent years, become imperative for environmental reasons, this concept is now reinforced by social and economic repercussions.
The readjustment of energy prices on the markets is underway after the shock experienced on the electricity (with peaks over €500/MWh) and gas (reaching €240/MWh) PGMs at the beginning of March. The geopolitical situation and subsequent developments could lead to a reduction in gas flows to the West, which is estimated to be worth a further increase of up to 25% from July onwards.
Persistence of the Ukrainian conflict, in fact, together with financial speculation, could lead to a staggering increase in energy costs of more than 160% by 2021.
There is an immediate need to drastically reduce direct consumption and increase, as far as possible, the share of own energy production from renewable sources.
Buying energy produced from renewable sources from the grid, although virtuous from an environmental point of view, may nevertheless not be sufficient from an economic point of view. Electricity produced by large photovoltaic parks, for example, is still sold by free market operators to end users at stock exchange prices, which are primarily linked to the trend in gas prices.
Energy efficiency as a competitive tool
Launching energy efficiency initiatives for industry can, however, run into financing problems. This is why we decided to provide a service that covers all aspects of this optimisation project.
Our multi-disciplinary teams are able to deal with technical (from consumption analysis, design, connection practices, installation and ordinary/extraordinary maintenance of the asset), financial (operational rental) and legal aspects to provide you with the most suitable solutions in lightening your environmental footprint, but also to help you gain independence from market fluctuations:
- One point of contact for your project management
- Our total independence from lenders and credit institutions
- Expertise in energy management, financing and data analysis
- The integration of all asset-related costs (maintenance, insurance, energy consumption) and duration of use
