Energy optimization and reduction in public buildings
Energy requalification and refurbishment in Desenzano del Garda
Making schools more sustainable
Maintaining the integrity of the landscape and the historical value of the buildings was priority for the multi-complex endeavour as the project spanned six buildings. Enel X’s intervention included the installation of new condensing components powered by methane gas which are capable of guaranteeing adequate temperatures, as well as installing thermal energy meters. Also included in the complete overhaul of the heating system was the incorporation of innovative heat exchangers, heat pumps, state-of-the-art installation for windows and doors, thermal efficiency walls, brand new generators and implementing mechanics which favored low-emission condensation and revved up outputs.
The process also involved enhancing lighting equipment with internal and external LED options to ensure a more sustainable illumination and incorporating solar panels to reduce electricity costs.
Furthermore, the multi-faceted approach optimized the management of clean energy consumption, utilizing high-efficiency cogeneration and trigeneration systems. The project is a clear example of a successful and sustainable demand response solution.
Enel X’s innovative technology allowed for the intelligent management of the system via remote control operations, enabling a more accurate management of the system’s main elements including heat control, the placement of alarms and valves, as well as providing accurate status updates. By increasing energy efficiency and further reducing energy consumption, Enel X developed a system which relies on static ultrasound elements and smart water treatment methods. These components all contribute to enhanced functionality and an overall reduction in the need for constant maintenance.
Sustainable education one step at a time
These energy-saving solutions have led to a better quality of life for Lake Garda residents, acting as a catalyst for other public and private entities to follow suit. And, most importantly, the project increased the green landscape with the addition of 10,000 new trees planted.
Smart schools lead to smart communities. Enel X is forging the road in strategic energy optimization solutions that lay the building blocks for energy efficient communities and continue the development of smart cities.
