The European Union finances research

finanziamenti europei

Secure, clean and efficient energy is one of the seven priority challenges identified by the EU in Horizon 2020 the biggest research and innovation program ever. For this reason € 5.9 billion have been allocated over 7 years (2014-2020) to support different energy related topics.

The focus on smart cities technologies (one of the three focus topic together with Energy efficiency and Low Carbon technologies) is expected to result in commercial-scale solutions with a high market potential: urban areas will benefit from new, efficient, and user-friendly technologies and services, in particular in the areas of energy (Smart grids), transport and ICT. The keyword is integration: integration among different technologies, among different partners, between public and private bodies. EU funds will be dedicated to develop large demonstrators which are expected to prove the feasibility of innovative approaches and technologies helping to mobilize private investments.

Microgrid, the energy future

The microgrid is a system of connected electricity consumptions that manages the energy needs of all its components in order to reach the following objectives:

Microgrid Loccioni
  • energy costs optimization by maximizing the use of locally produced power through the management of energy flows;
  • power quality and reliability improvement through the reduction in the number and duration of power outages;
  • reduction of CO2 emission.

Is it really possible to reach these goals? The answer is yes.
The Energy Management System (EMS) makes it possible to enhance remote data monitoring, advanced building management, energy flows optimization and demand response programs.

Il bilancio dell’energy manager

La gestione dell’energia è oggi un tema molto discusso, perché tocca da vicino tutti i settori produttivi , dal manifatturiero al terziario fino ad arrivare alle strutture del settore pubblico. Agricoltura, industria, trasporti, grande distribuzione, uffici, sanità e ospedali sono infatti accomunati dalla necessità di consumare energia per realizzare i propri processi, svolgere le attività e, più in generale, nel funzionamento degli edifici. Si sta pertanto gradualmente diffondendo la consapevolezza di dover intervenire per impiegare correttamente i vettori energetici, al fine di non subire la bolletta come una tassa, quanto piuttosto di trarre vantaggio competitivo dagli investimenti in efficienza energetica, generando così nuove occasioni di sviluppo.

Ma cos’è in realtà l’energy management?
