Smart Carbon, the sustainable idea of Loccioni Environment.

smart carbon
(di Stefano Collura, R&D Manager, Loccioni Environment)

Let’s try to image a world without coal fired power plants, incinerators, steelworks, cement plants, refineries, chemical plants and all those plants commonly agreed as polluting ones.

Of course we would live in cleaner and nicer world, but most probably we would also be compelled to give away most of the comforts we get used to and upon which is based our present idea of wellbeing: we would not be able to produce enough energy to meet our needs, we would live in wood made houses or caves, we would need fire to heat e we would move on foot or by horse; we would not even go by bicycle because we would need to melt metals and synthesize tires from hydrocarbons…

Loccioni@Smart Energy Expo

Smart energy expo

On Friday, 10th of October Loccioni Group will present its Microgrid in one of the conferences organized by Smart Energy Expo in Verona, the international exhibition that promotes new solutions, products and technologies for energy efficiency.

Smart Energy Expo deals with energy efficiency from two points of view:

  • reduce wasted energy in processes and final goods
  • produce more distributed energy, focusing on resources that are economically efficient and environmentally friendly.
We will wait for you at our presentation!

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.

Rispondere al cambiamento con un approccio Agile

L’energia è uno di quei mercati dove è difficile fare previsioni a lungo termine, capire quali saranno le soluzioni in grado di soddisfare il crescente fabbisogno energetico avendo sempre un occhio vigile sulla sostenibilità ecologica ed economica. Sappiamo che nuove soluzioni vanno trovate, ma sul come e quali oggi non c’è un idea chiara. Sentiamo sempre parlare di smart grid (anzi il trend del momento è smart cities), cloud computing, servizi, energy storage, partecipazione del privato e chi più ne ha più ne metta.

Come può un team di ricerca e sviluppo far fronte a questi problemi, sviluppare soluzioni e portarle nel mercato in tempo utili? La risposta risiede in una parola: agilità.
