Public Buildings

STEPPING Pilot Actions in Alto Alentejo


PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Objectives:

STEPPING project main objectives are to support the development and implementation of Energy Performance Contracts and development of actions leading to the implementation of the European Energy Efficiency Directives in public buildings. In order to meet those objectives, AREANATejo promoted the implementation of a pilot action in the field of measurement and installation of energy consumption monitoring devices in the 12 public buildings that integrate STEPPING Project

Characteristics:

  • Production of sanitary hot water through the use of renewable energy (biomass);
  • Improvement of HVAC systems;
  • Installation of capacitor batteries to compensate the power factor;
  • Installation of solar photovoltaic systems for self-consumption;
  • Improvement of lighting systems.

With an overall investment of around € 725.000, the implementation of these measures will lead to a significant reduction in energy consumption, thus resulting in an annual reduction of around € 194.000, with a simple payback period of 3,7 years (without funding).
