According to the Digital Energy Efficieny Report 2021 (DEER 2021), the energy efficiency market has been significantly impacted by the COVID19 health emergency, with investments declining by 19.6% in 2020.
The aspect that will most influence the direction of investment in the energy efficiency market will be the evolution of the regulatory environment.
In this context, both the 2030 National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan (NIPEC 2030) and the EU strategy towards zero net emissions by 2050, the European Green Deal, should be taken into account.
The PNIEC 2030 is a fundamental tool that marks the beginning of a major shift in our country’s energy and environmental policy towards decarbonisation.
The aim is to implement a new energy policy that ensures the full environmental, social and eco-nomic sustainability of the national territory and accompanies this transition.
The environment and consumers require the market to adopt solutions that reduce emissions and the impact of industry on the environment.
Therefore at IBT we are convinced that energy efficiency and decarbonisation are no longer an op-tion or a revolutionary choice.
WHY SHOULD COMPANIES INVEST IN ENERGY EFFICIENCY?
The measures envisaged by the European Green Pact range from radically cutting emissions to creating jobs in clean industry and supporting the European regions most affected by this transi-tion.
To do this, a number of main objectives are set, namely:
- Starting the journey towards a profound economic and social transformation to achieve full climate neutrality
- Becoming the global driving force towards a green economy
- Implementing an effective and sustainable circular economy strategy
- Increasing energy efficiency and reducing dependence on external energy sources
Energy saving is not only about cost containment, but today more than ever it involves cultural aspects, the elaboration of an ethical concept of distinction between willingness or unwillingness to take charge of our future on this Earth.
WHY IBT GROUP IS THE LEADER IN HIGH EFFICIENCY SOLUTIONS
Innovative technology exists and has been offered for more than 20 years.
IBT Group, exclusive partner of Capstone Green Energy since 2001, realizes energy efficient projects and solutions with the most modern and innovative technological applications. Starting from the realization of a technical and economic feasibility study, IBT can study and present the best customized solution to maximize investments and achieve high performance.
Among the energy-efficient solutions, IBT Group can provide, thanks to the partnership with Capstone Green Energy Corp. and Century Coroporation, cogeneration and trigeneration plants that optimize the consumption of primary energy and ensure the reduction of environmental impact, cutting emissions and significantly lowering costs. Capstone’s oil-free gas turbine technology, the only patent in the world and the result of ten years of research, guarantees the total absence of lubricating oil inside the turbines thanks to the use of air bearings.
In cogeneration plants, which simultaneously generate electrical and thermal energy in the form of water or hot air, steam and thermal oil, the average saving is over 30%. As an extension of the cogeneration systems, IBT’s trigeneration plants provide a further improvement in efficiency. By combining Capstone technology with Century Corporation’s absorption chillers, the heat carrier produced by cogeneration can be used to operate an absorption chiller, which in turn produces chilled water for use in air conditioning systems.
