SUCCESS IN REDUCING CO2 EMISSIONS

Albet i Noya, a cellar that is already well known for being a pioneer in ecological wines in Catalonia and throughout Spain, has a wine producing tradition that goes back four generations and has vast experience with over 36 years producing ecological wines.
In line with its philosophy of respecting the environment, at the beginning of 2013 it contracted an “Energy Accounting” service through the Macbrabant company.

The contracted service consisted of monitoring electricity consumption through different meters. In this way we detect the real power used in each area and at all times. The active and reactive energy consumptions and therefore be able to detect anomalous consumption.


By checking that the invoicing was right, we could optimise the contract with the supplying company. Once the necessary changes were made, the electricity consumption saving only in the second quarter of 2013, in comparison to the same period in 2012, was 14%.
Later on, and from the information registered about the day to day power demand, we could adjust the contracted power downwards, a fact that has already turned into additional savings and an important reduction in CO2 emissions for this concept.

Albet i Noya will continue controlling the energy consumption in order to manage it better and optimise it through the implementation of “Good environmental practices ” and continue advancing in energy efficiency, reducing CO2 emissions.
