    The following measures were implemented. MCEs Electrical Energy savings: MCE 1: Replacement of highly used lights by LED technology. MCE 2: Installation of presence detectors in corridors. MCE 3: Installation of crepuscular sensors in outside corridors. MCE 4: Replacement of lights in parking area by LED technology. MCE 5: Installation of a new Chiller of 700kWf and its connection to FSSB collector. MCE 6: Installation of one chiller in the epigenetic zone. MCE 7: Performance improvement of Chillers of Therapeutics Zone. MCE 8: Reduction of pressure in the compressed air pipes. MCE 9: Feed the washing tunnel of the FSSB kitchen with heated water from Solar thermal. MCE 15: Optimization of Electric Transformers performance. MCE 16: Solar filters in windows of 2nd and 3rd floors oriented to SE and SW. MCE 20: Heat recovery in the ‘Climavenetta’ Chiller in Hematology department. MCE 22: Installation of frequency converters in FSSB pumps and improvement of performance of the current ones. MCE 26: Improvement of efficiency of Air Handler Units motors with higher power. MCEs Natural Gas savings: MCE 13: Improvement of Kitchen performance which use gas. MCE 14: Improvement of the Gros calorific potential (kWh/GCP/day/ contracted). MCE 18: Reduction of temperature in supply piping heating circuit. MCE 19: Improvement in leveraging solar thermal energy for DHW (Domestic heat water) in FSSB. Improvement of isolation in the DHW room. MCE 21: Disconnection of 3 tanks of DHW not needed MCE 23: Optimization of time set points of AHU (air handler units). MCE 24: Optimization of time set points for fan-coils. MCE 25: Optimization of temperature set points of supply in AHU. MCEs Water savings: MCE 10: Exploit of water from tanks by fluxors. MCE 11: Replacement of water taps by other with pressure button. MCE 12: Optimization of performance of watering (irrigation).

  • Yes, for energy audit. In fact the audit was performed by an engineering company and that work was outsourced by ICAEN who was the facilitator

  • • The ESCO has developed a M&V plan to report savings and a third party company (Engineering company), contracted by CAR Sport Complex checks for savings • Last report for the savings (2016) have stated the following figures: Savings in ____ Guaranteed ACHIEVED Energy (kWh) Economic (€) Energy (kWh) Economic (€) Electricity 3.150.338 364.400 3.122.715 361.205 Natural Gas / Fuel oil 1.773.229 78.873 1.171.854 52.124 • Total tons of CO2 emissions avoided has been in 2016 of 1016

  • A facilitiator team in ICAEN is dedicated to promote and foster EPC projects within the public buildings of the Catalan government. The term Energy Performance Contracting (or EPC) is a business model in which a site owner outsources energy services to a third party for a defined period. This means that energy is supplied and/or comprehensive energy saving measures are implemented by an energy contractor, rather than by the owner. The energy contractor is a specialist service company that takes on all of the tasks (e.g. planning, construction, financing and operational management of a heating plant) as well as the risks associated with the energy service.
