We improve Cosentino group's energy consumption
CLEAN, NON-POLLUTING ENERGY
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
1 in 8 people still do not have access to electricity. In order to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, it is necessary to increase the use of renewable energy from 25 % today to 38 % in 2025.
ACCIONA is positioning itself as a key player in addressing the growth in energy demand while curbing the progress of global warming and promoting the transition to a decarbonized energy model.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy is responsible for 74 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the new needs of humanity and to minimise their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its related effects to be a strategic priority. The Company is working to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
ACCIONA improves energy activities for the Cosentino Group, the most notable of which include energy audits at all centres, the execution of engineering studies, implementation of solutions to improve efficiency and real-time consumption monitoring through ACCIONA's Renewable energy control center (CECOER)
The most notable activities include:
- Analysis of energy consumption information.
- Conducting energy efficiency audits or diagnostics.
- Energy management, analysis and identification of energy-saving opportunities.
- Presentation of energy efficiency initiative proposals.
- Energy consumption monitoring/measurement.
- Implementation, financing and implementation of initiatives.
- Management of grants for energy-saving projects.
The replacement of lights with new versions, estimated to be 65% more efficient, as well as the replacement of high-consumption equipment, represent a significant reduction in the environmental impact and CO2 atmospheric emissions.
- Client: Cosentino
- Start of contract: 2017
- Location: Cantoria (Almeria), Spain
- Services: provision of energy services in the Cosentino industrial park (Cantoria, Almeria, Spain)
ACCIONA monitors factory consumption and distribution points in real time at its Digital Energy Services Control Centre in Madrid. The data obtained, processed using Big Data and Data Analytics techniques, detects abnormal patterns of power consumption and activates an early warning system.
Since the contract began, ACCIONA has developed audits and studies of energy efficiency initiatives and has implemented energy efficiency projects in Energy Services in the Cosentino industrial park. One of its projects has been to upgrade the interior lighting of its warehouses to LED lights and to upgrade the exterior lighting.
