The energy audit, is a systematic inspection and analysis of energy use and energy consumption of a site, building, system or organisation with the objective of identifying energy flows and the potential for energy efficiency improvements and reporting them. (definition from UNI CEI EN 16247-1).
Cloros performs energy audit in respect of international technical standards, and provides practical, tangible solutions for reducing energy consumption without affecting the output of an industrial process.
ISO 50001 is a standard that specify the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system, whose purpose is to enable an organization to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, energy security, energy use and consumption. The standard aims to help organizations continually reduce their energy use, and therefore their energy costs and their greenhouse gas emissions.
Cloros assist organization in the creation of a functional, easy, and solid Energy Management System that can be certified by a third party under the ISO 50001 requirements.
Energy performance contract
Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) is a form of ‘creative financing’ for capital improvement which allows funding energy upgrades from cost reductions. Under an EPC arrangement an external organisation (ESCO) implements a project to deliver energy efficiency, or a renewable energy project, and uses the stream of income from the cost savings, or the renewable energy produced, to repay the costs of the project, including the costs of the investment. Essentially the ESCO will not receive its payment unless the project delivers energy savings as expected.
Cloros make available funds for companies which intend to improve their energy efficieny performances, using the unique formula of EPC. Providing design, installation, maintenance and monitoring of an intervention, Cloros assure its clients that only the best exisiting technology will be used in their production plants, and that a real, secure money saving is guaranteed.
Energy use monitoring
Monitoring is the crucial action for managing energy effectively. Cloros can design the proper monitoring system to maintain under control the energy performances of a process, and provide its clients a comprehensible, easy-to-read, web-based platform (mobile friendly) to understand the status of the energy performances at a glance.
