Energy Efficiency: Much More Than a Business

18 of August of 2012

One positive aspect of working in a large company is that you have the tools at your disposal to (among other things) make the world a better place.

The current situation has made everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY, think about energy waste in recent years. It seems that our planet cannot handle as much as we thought, and the authorities have finally decided to do something about it. They’ve also been prompted to act because our energy bill is becoming… impossible. At all events, we should be appreciative that topics such as the environment, green energies, and energy efficiency are finally forming part of our daily dialogue.

Governments have made an unequivocal commitment to this sector. They will set an example for private companies, with contracts worth up to 50 billion euro in the next 20 years. Cutting costs is at the top of the list, and doing so will reduce CO2 emissions.

As an example we have the Ferroser contract with the Bilbao city government, by which the company will meet the energy needs of all of Bilbao’s municipal sports complexes in an efficient and environmentally-friendly way.

Our proposal will reduce CO2 emissions equivalent to those produced by close to 700 households in one year, and will reduce consumption of gas by 27% and electricity by 10%. Considering that this new solution will provide economic savings of 25% more than the city government’s best estimates, it’s clear that best practices are not only in line with our approach as a company, but they also enhance the competitiveness of our clients.

It’s plain to see that business will boom for companies in this industry, and it’s an ideal outcome: a business that’s not only profitable, but also helps the environment and… makes the world a better place.
