Energy efficiency in building management is one of the cornerstones of smart cities. Enel X will soon provide new high-tech services for this purpose.
Currently, both residential and commercial buildings are often energy inefficient (i.e. they consume more energy than they would if managed appropriately) concerning their heating (heating and hot water) and electrical (lighting and air conditioning) energy use, and they are characterised by high levels of winter and summer thermal dispersion.
To solve this, Enel X provides energy efficiency and energy saving solutions for building management, and we promote such efficiency as one of the cornerstones of smart cities through sustainable technological innovation.
A first level of action includes thermal insulation, the replacement of traditional lighting systems with smart and LED technologies, and the modernisation of heating systems through renewable energy, such as solar thermal energy or heat pumps. At a later stage, the best results will come from the energy retrofitting of buildings (thermal, electrical and envelope systems).
Enel X intervenes with a wide range of actions:
- Integrated design of the building systems
- Energy retrofitting of mechanical and electrical systems
- Design of efficient lighting systems using smart energy services
- Integrated management of mechanical, electrical and building systems
