- Innovative agreement with Banco di Sardegna (BPER Group) company to install a photovoltaic and power storage system at its Sassari headquarters
Sassari, February 17th, 2022 – To achieve lower CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, equal to 320 tons per year, or to planting 10,000 trees per year, is the main environmental sustainability objective of the innovation and energy transition agreement signed by Enel X Global Retail and Numera, the ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) company of the Banco di Sardegna, active in the market for software development and provider of high-reliability services.
The agreement foresees the installation by Enel X of a 650 kWp photovoltaic system on the roof of Numera’s headquarters in Sassari, in the Predda Niedda area, and an innovative power storage system with the installation of a 300 kVA-558 kWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS). The BESS will make it possible to fully harness the energy produced by the photovoltaic system and thus increase NUMERA’s energy autonomy by more than 80%, with clear environmental and economic benefits, through savings of 86% on energy costs.
The project is part of a broader context, which sees Sardinia as the ideal territory for a gradual path to decarbonization with the hope that this important initiative, which will be documented at every stage, can inspire companies and institutions to share the importance, in the short- and long-term, of producing green energy in innovative ways.
“We are very pleased to have signed this agreement,” stated Francesco Chiari, General Manager of Numera. “Our desire to aim for maximum energy efficiency in a sustainable context has found in Enel X not only a supplier, but a true partner for the integrated solutions offered and for the 360º consultancy that will accompany us throughout all phases of the project.”
“The agreement with Numera represents the first important step towards decarbonization and electrification of consumption, in order to make Sardinia the greenest region in Italy,” declared Augusto Raggi, Head of Italy at Enel X Global Retail. “In Numera we have found an enlightened management team that believes in sustainability and has made a choice that creates value for all.”
“This project, which we will be pursuing with a prestigious partner of the caliber of Enel X, coincides fully with the role that our Group is looking to play as a driver of sustainable growth and environmental protection, and we are therefore delighted to be able to have a concrete application here in Sardinia,” added Giuseppe Cuccurese, General Manager of Banco di Sardegna.
