    The following measures were implemented. ECM1. Improvement of the interior lighting technology, based on LED. ECM2. Improvements actions on the Air Handler Units ECM3. Replacement of R22 direct expansion equipment by other equipment with Freon aligned with current regulation. ECM 4 & 5. Retrofit of heat production systems: replacement of oil boilers by gas boilers. ECM6. Cooling Tower replacement. ECM7. New dehumidifier pump for the 25 m interior swimming pool ECM8. Replaced gas boiler by a solar thermal energy production to feed the outdoor pool. ECM9. New monitoring and management system (with 45 field sensors) under responsibility of an energy manager who is CMVP qualified. ECM10. Optimization of the use of facilities. ECM12. Improvement of pumping system (for the pools). ECM13. Improve of Insulation in pipes and swimming pools. ECM 11&14. Actions for water saving

  • Energy 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. Total tons of CO2 emissions avoided has been in 2016 of 1.094.

  • 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.
