Buildings in the EU are responsible for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions.
Making EU buildings more energy efficient and less dependent on fossil fuels by investing in renovation would reduce the final energy consumption of buildings and cut emissions in the sector by 2030.
Next Power implements energy efficiency projects that maximise consumption and optimise energy performance
Over the years, Next Power has carried out major industrial energy efficiency projects through the replacement and disposal of large fossil fuel boilers. We have realised important heat pump systems on industrial buildings through the Conto Termico 2.0 an incentive that varies from 40% to 65% of the expenditure incurred.
Energy efficiency activities for buildings and industrial plants are related to the following areas:
- Lighting with high-efficiency LED or fluorescent luminaires;
- Summer/winter air conditioning;
- Integration of existing installations with solar thermal panels for the production of domestic and industrial process hot water;
- Inverters for controlling electric motors;
- Photovoltaics: generators for producing energy from solar renewable sources;
- Power quality control systems: power factor correction systems, harmonic suppressors, power supply voltage stabilisers;
- Centralised plant management systems: Building Automation;
Energy consumption in the hospitality sector is strongly influenced by the number of guests present who require a comfortable heated or cooled environment and use a large share of thermal energy for domestic hot water, a need that is increasing in realities with swimming pools and spas.
Next Power offers technological Energy Efficiency solutions for accommodation facilities and apartment blocks, from Energy Audit to the realisation of the best plant solution.
Using the sun's energy stored during the day even at night is possible, using a storage system, which allows you to store the energy produced by your photovoltaic system, and then reuse it according to your needs.
It is important to know that if the energy produced is more than the user needs, it will be used to charge the batteries.
The purpose of the accumulator is to make the end user energy self-sufficient and completely independent of the grid
Thanks to our years of experience and a team of qualified technicians, we are able to illustrate and design advanced and innovative technical solutions for every need.
Revampering & Repowering
Revamping & repowering refers to the modernisation and replacement of old plants installed more than 15 years ago. This intervention would lead to better figures in terms of electricity production and efficiency.
In the case of a photovoltaic system, repowering basically consists of replacing the photovoltaic modules, inverters and their electrical connections, with the aim of increasing their nominal power and annual energy production capacity.
With the latest generation of photovoltaic modules, their characteristics would allow Italian photovoltaic production to be increased by more than 40 per cent for the same amount of land occupied.
Monitoring refers to all operations aimed at checking the health of a photovoltaic panel system.
Keeping a photovoltaic system under control is essential to ensure a high and constant yield and thus the greatest savings on the electricity bill.
A photovoltaic monitoring system consists of a hardware component, usually a control unit and a set of particular sensors, combined with a software component based on IoT technology.
The software acquires a number of parameters from the inverter that are vital for verifying photovoltaic production, such as:
- Electricity production;
- Grid voltage;
- Solar irradiation;
- Panel temperature;
- Wind speed and strength;
This information is then displayed on screen on an APP or in a special web platform in the form of easy-to-understand graphs so that it is easy to understand whether the plant needs maintenance or whether productivity
is what is really expected.
In order to guarantee the best service, Next Power has state-of-the-art programmes that guarantee the monitoring of all installations carried out for its customers, allowing a high level of control from its operational headquarters and perfect timing of intervention for any faults or malfunctions
MV/LV transformer substations
Medium voltage/low voltage (MV/LV) transformer substations consist of the set of devices dedicated to transforming the voltage supplied by the electrical distribution network into medium voltage;
Next Power has all the appropriate certifications for the construction of MV-LV substations. Only specialised personnel with the appropriate qualification (PES-PAV) may enter the electrical cabin to carry out electrical work;
Special/industrial electrical installations
Design and realisation of electrical installations for industrial buildings and production lines. Next Power realises industrial electrical systems for companies and manufacturing industries, providing a complete service from feasibility study, design, installation and system certification. It also provides periodic maintenance and 24-hour service with maintenance contracts.
Importanti opere nel settore industriale hanno permesso all’azienda di specializzarsi nell’ambito degli impianti elettrici con soluzioni specifiche per ogni realtà ed esigenza: efficientamento energetico degli edifici, linee di alimentazione, illuminazione industriale a led,building automation, cablaggio strutturato.
Important works in the industrial sector have enabled the company to specialise in the field of electrical installations with specific solutions for every reality and need: energy efficiency of buildings, power supply lines, industrial LED lighting, building automation, structured cabling. This allows the company to also serve the civil electrical installation sector where the latest and most advanced technological solutions such as home automation, energy self-production, intelligent control and management of consumption, for large residential centres with large shared energy management systems are to be used.
Such residences require centralised management of energy resources, thus coordinating the various systems operating in parallel: electrical systems, building automation, indoor and outdoor lighting systems of condominium public spaces.
LED relamping refers to the replacement of traditional lighting (fluorescent, incandescent or halogen) with the latest generation of energy-efficient LED luminaires.
Benefits of LED Relamping:
- the reduction of energy and maintenance costs due to the lower consumption of LED technology, allowing costs to be reduced by up to 50%;
- the improvement of lighting efficiency and visual comfort;
- integration with high-tech smart regulation and control systems;
- greater reliability and durability, LED lamps are designed to last 50,000 hours compared to the 2,000-hour life cycle of halogen lamps or the 1,000 hours of an incandescent bulb;
- lower environmental impact due to less heat loss than conventional lamps, lower carbon dioxide production and the absence of polluting chemicals.
