Energy efficiency for a sustainable industry: energy saving potential for Italian manufacturing sectors and impact of energy efficiency measures on economic performance and competitiveness of enterprises

Il progetto InduCO (Industria – Consumo di energia – Ottimizzazione), sviluppato da RSE, si pone l’obiettivo di studiare come l’efficienza energetica possa aiutare le industrie a migliorare le prestazioni energetiche, la competitività e l’impatto ambientale. Lo studio si basa sull’analisi di oltre 2500 misure di efficienza energetica implementate dalle imprese manifatturiere italiane negli ultimi 10 anni e indaga, in questo articolo, l’impatto dell’efficienza energetica sulla performance economica e sulla competitività delle imprese.

Italian industry is responsible for nearly one third of domestic final energy consumption and therefore it has a fundamental role in achieving the compelling EU 2030 targets for greenhouse emissions and energy efficiency. Moreover Italian industry is facing the increasing competitiveness of emerging economies. Since energy and environmental externalities can affect even 50% of production costs, the carbon leakage risk is more real than ever and it threatens the ability of enterprises to survive in international markets.

In this challenging context, RSE is carrying out the project InduCO (Industry – energy Consumption – Optimization), which aims at investigating how energy efficiency can help industries to address virtuously energy performance, competitiveness and environmental impact. The study is based on the analysis of over 2500 energy efficiency measures implemented in Italian industries in the last 10 years. The purpose is to identify the best practices and estimate the energy saving potential achievable by each industrial sector, according to technical feasibility and economic sustainability criteria. Finally the study investigates the impact of energy efficiency on economic performance and competitiveness of enterprises. In this paper methodology and results of the study are presented for two energy intensive manufacturing sectors: paper and glass.
