Implementation of ENMS in the Spanish companies
Energy efficiency has been acquiring a more important role in Spain throughout the years. This is mainly due to the current national situation of political and economic instability. This situation that affects directly to the energy sector, makes energy efficiency one of the most safer values when designing saving measures by the Spanish Companies. A number of 21 Companies, with the assistance from the specialized international firm Factor, have developed an analysis of their sources and energy consumption, which allows them to design a series of energy measures to reduce their energy consumption. In order to standardize and to continue with the energy plan, they are concluding with the implementation of an Energy Management System based on the ISO 50001 standard adapted to the Industry.
The Spanish companies have reduced the main KPI of the project (GJ total energy / ton paper) from 1,3 to 1,1. As a consequence, they have reduced considerably their CO2e emissions in paper consumption, electricity and waste treatment since 2013 (893 tCO2e), incorporating measures in lighting, insulation and efficient machines, among others. However, the companies are in the process of developing a new package of measures in order to reduce their consumption over the next few years.
