ENERGY AUDITS and ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS – Two complementary energy efficiency measures

Energy audits and energy management are important elements of any energy efficiency strategy. They allow companies to identify their energy-saving potential and hence to reduce their energy consumption significantly. In the EU, for example, Energy Audits are mandatory for large companies, but even small to medium-sized enterprises (SME) can [...]

Why faster action on energy efficiency is needed

How are businesses dealing with the energy crisis? The general feeling, in the first months of the energy crisis, was that the cost  increase would dissolve in a short time. Instead, it did not happen. Ongoing high prices had an impact on the evaluation of strategic actions that include [...]

Energy Sobriety: more competitive and sustainable

What is Energy Sobriety? Energy Sobriety means reducing our energy consumption by changing our consumption styles, uses and behavior. There are multiple types of sobriety: Sobriety of use, which consists in reducing the duration, use or frequency of use of energy-consuming equipment. Sobriety of substitution, i.e., replacing an appliance [...]

Energy Management Systems and their Role in the Energy Transition

What is Energy Transition? In 2015, at COP 21 in Paris, an international agreement was signed that set the target of limiting global warming by the end of this century to below 2°C. COP26, which instead took place in 2021 in Glasgow, confirmed the commitment to achieve carbon neutrality [...]

Sistemas de gestión de energía y su papel en la transición energética

¿Qué es la Transición Energética? En el 2015, en la COP 21 de París, se firmó un acuerdo internacional que fijó el objetivo de limitar el calentamiento global a finales de este siglo por debajo de los 2°C. Durante la COP26, que en cambio tuvo lugar en el 2021 [...]

Permanently installed vs Temporary Power Quality monitoring systems

Power quality is a growing concern Power quality is already one of the main concerns for electrical systems and PQ analyzers should be included by default in your panels / auditing services.  From one side, we have today a higher equipment sensitivity and from the other side the same [...]

The measurement of energy in DC Systems

Many applications now see benefits in switching to using DC power Since it is easier to use, for more than a hundred years Alternate Current (AC) has been the default option for any energy distribution system. In recent years instead, what companies and building owners are discovering is that  [...]

Energy bills are set to rise up to 40% in the next quarter of 2021. Energy efficiency can enable lower energy prices and costs.

Over the past year, the price of electricity has risen considerably, especially in Europe. According to analysts and economists, in the next quarter, a further increase in energy costs is estimated, which in the EU area can reach up to 40%. Some examples In Germany, the wholesale price of electricity [...]

Electrex selected as an industrial partner of the Energynius project

A NEW PARADIGM FOR URBAN ENERGY SYSTEMS Energy systems are experiencing a transition towards new design and management models, the so-called "Smart Energy Systems", in which energy networks (heat, electricity, gas, transport, etc.) will be integrated with each other in order to maximize the possible synergies. The main objective [...]
