Energy Audits

The energy diagnosis or energy audit is the main tool for analysing energy: auditing is the only way of understanding how energy is consumed and where action is necessary to improve its use.

Energy audits are used to find out details about consumption, compare the existing technologies with the best available on the market and optimize costs, certifying the saving obtained and reducing the environmental impact. The service can be modulated and personalized on the basis of the particular features of the situation examined and any specific requests. It is also possible to take advantage of some of the savings obtained through white certificates or EEC (Energy efficiency credits).

ENGIE has certified EMEs (Energy Management Experts) within the company and offers a service with high standards that guarantee the validity of the energy audits up to 4 years from the date on which the audit report is drawn up.

ENGIE accompanies the companies in their sustainable development to convert it into a competitive advantage.

Following an energy audit, the ENGIE professionals, together with the company, elaborate the technical solution best suited to increase the energy and environmental performance of the systems. From the design and construction of cogeneration and trigeneration plants and renewable sources to the integrated energy and facility management services, the ENGIE offer is multidisciplinary to work alongside the customers in managing their energy processes, throughout their production chain, guaranteeing continuity and safety.

 

SUCCESS STORY: City Council of Verona

Management, optimization, requalification and monitoring of a vast plant complex, made up of about 400 users, distributed across the entire municipal area, including: the Palazzo della Gran Guardia, a centre for international exhibitions and events, Palazzo della Ragione, a centre for shows and exhibitions, Palazzo Barbieri, the Town Hall, and the Castelvecchio Museum.

Following a preliminary energy diagnosis of the buildings, the project developed around some energy efficiency operations, such as the installation of modern multi-burner condensing boilers. In addition to this, a remote control system that allows thousands of technological and environmental parameters to be monitored constantly from the control room or from mobile devices has been connected. Finally, an information system for managing calls from users has been set up. It includes the identification data of the buildings and the plants, as well as the detailed maintenance plan complete with the activity schedule. The results obtained enable the energy saving target to be reached: about 515 tonnes of CO2 avoided, the obtainment of 220 type 2 energy efficiency credits, with consequent economic benefits, as well as greater environmental comfort.
