Objectives and performance

 Objectives and performance
What we said we would do What we have done Area *

· ISO 50001 energy improvement plan for Hera Spa, AAA and MMS: reduce energy consumption by over 4% in 2018 and by 5% by 2020 (compared to 2013).

· Consumption down 4.4% in 2018 (compared to 2013), thanks to measures that have been implemented. Further reduction to 5.3% by 2020 expected with measures already planned.

· Public lighting: implement energy saving measures for 1,300 toe in 2018 including the replacement of luminaires with LED lamps (16% in 2021).

· 1,634 toe saved thanks to measures implemented in 2018 including the replacement of luminaires with LED lamps (15% in 2018).

· Continue to promote new gas, electricity and district heating offers with energy efficiency services. Customers with these offers reaching 20% of the total in 2018 (+30% compared to 2017) and 35% within 2021.

· 14.6% of customers joined offers providing energy efficiency services (were 15.9% in 2017). In 2018 the offers Hera ContaWatt, Hera Thermo, Hera Ecomove, Hera Led and Led Business were promoted and the Consumption Analysis Report which help customers check and reduce their consumption.

 

 

 

· Heating management contract for properties in the Municipality of Modena: thermal energy consumption -30% in 2019 compared to historical consumption of the last 5 years.

· 18% reduction of thermal energy consumption in 2018 in Modena (compared to historical consumption of the last 5 years), thanks to measures implemented and included in the heating management contract.

 

 

 

· Continue to promote energy saving solutions for the public administration and industrial customers. Launch the “solar thermal system and thermal insulation” offer for condominiums.

· 1 new industrial cogeneration plant was built in 2018 and energy efficiency solutions were promoted for condominiums (+25% in the portfolio of condominiums with offers for “energy services”, “solar thermal”, “thermal insulation”, “tax credit assignment offer”, “heat metering system”).

· Launch the production of biomethane from organic waste and a new plant to recover energy from decompression of methane.

· Production of biomethane from waste started at the Sant’Agata Bolognese plant at the end of 2018.

ER

 

 

· Start a new energy recovery plant from the decompression of methane, through the experimental installation of a medium-small sized turbo expander (330 electric kW) at a medium-sized R&M (regulation and measuring) station, with an estimated production of 1,600 MWh per year (annual consumption for about 600 families).

· Authorization activities and the construction of machinery by supplier were completed in 2018, and installation of the prototype at the R&M station of “Ducati” in Bologna. Preliminary and preparatory tests are underway for the experimental start-up phase, scheduled for spring 2019.

ER

 

 

· Reduce by 22% by 2021 the carbon footprint of energy production compared to 2015 (kg CO2/MWh).

· 16% reduction of the carbon footprint of energy production by 2018 (compared to 2015).
