Our company requested the energy audit of the Torrita di Siena headquarters by ESAERG S.R.L., the energy service company certified according to the UNI CEI 11352 standard, identified by Legislative Decree no. 102 of 2014 and authorized for the preparation of such diagnoses. The diagnosis will be conducted and carried out according to the provisions of Article 8 of Legislative Decree no.102 of 2014, the reference documentation produced by ENEA and MISE and the reference technical standards, with particular regard to UNI CEI EN 16247 (Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4).
The energy audit aims to provide adequate knowledge of the energy consumption profile of the entire Cassioli site (methods of use of the site, measurement and accounting of qualitative and quantitative data) by identifying and quantifying the opportunity for energy savings in terms of costs and benefits. A correct Energy Diagnosis will make it possible to understand the real share of electricity – motive+, thermal or refrigeration – that is consumed by a specific department or by “production lines”; it will essentially allow us to understand how much the heating, air conditioning, lighting or compressed air system “weighs” on the overall energy needs of the plant.
Indeed, that Diagnosis can represent the first step towards a new management approach and the rationalization of internal processes, with the aim of equipping our company with an energy management system according to the ISO 50001 standard and then transforming the legislative obligation into a real opportunity for the company itself, identifying the “state of affairs” or “zero” time of the activity (in terms of energy), in order to understand how to think about efficiency measures (such as, for example, the use of LED lighting, the increase in photovoltaic production, the efficiency of the thermal power plant, the efficiency of the factory pneumatic system or the use of electric vehicles).
The energy audit will cover all the energy vectors (electric, thermal or cooling energy) used in the Torrita production site and will consider the supply, internal generation, distribution and final use of each of them; it will also consider the data from analysis and monitoring of the site’s consumption, including the fuels (diesel) used by the means of transport for goods and for Cassioli staff.
