EPC Reducing 20% of SME’s Overall Consumption in Italy

SEA will present a significant case study based on a real EPC project carried on for Eurocarbo S.p.A., a worldwide leader sintered material company.

According to the contract, SEA is managing various energy efficiency measures in four different company sectors.

The entire cycle of an Energy Performance Contract has been respected. SEA finances the whole project and is responsible for the design, installation and O&M. Eurocarbo will get a 20% reduction of the overall consumption; thanks to the savings, the client will have the chance to use its capitals to invest in activities directly related to its core business.

Main economic facts:

  • Investment 330.000 €

  • O&M 27.400 €/year

  • Annual savings 105.000 €/year

How can Utilities Succeed in the Emerging Energy Value Eco-system? Synchronize Business and Engineering Operations

Solar, Battery Storage, EV Charging, Micro-grids and other Energy Technologies would create new opportunities of co-creation of  value between Utilities, its Customers and Partners. Utilities have to evaluate the various business cases and select the best possible business model for the same. A key to the success for an Utility would depend on  how well they can leverage their engineering operations to come up with an effective operating model to install and maintain these energy technologies. They would also need to leverage their business operations more effectively to ensure a more data enabled, situation aware and  responsive model for making the energy value ecosystem viable and sustainable.

  • What are the Operating Models Utilities are adopting to address this new emerging business?
  • What new approaches will be required to create synergy between the Utility's Business and Engineering Operations to cater to the lifestyle of the customers?
  • How can Utilities leverage the emerging technologies to enable a viable and sustainable energy value ecosystem?

The Power of Data Analytics to Drive the Evolution of a Smart City

  • After rigorous work on data integration, the team is now using new approaches to reveal insights from their resulting Big Data.  These insights influence all use cases across the breadth of the ASCR, but mostly in smart ICT and LV grid control, driving at operational and strategic grid planning and near real-time management.
  • Smart ICT use case including operational and strategic grid planning and grid load forecasting.   The district is able to achieve greater accuracy in forecasting which reduces total costs and environmental impacts. The district benefits from a feedback loop whereby they are able to quickly analyze the efficiency of their optimization strategies with a view to continuous improvement.
  • LV grid control use case including LV grid management and smart meters for grid monitoring.  The district is able to consider how they can shift from “passive” grid optimization by analyzing events and effects, to “active” grid optimization and grid management. This will extend to distributed intelligence based on distributed devices (field-tested prototypes).
