Finding ways for businesses to save energy and reduce their carbon footprint is currently one of the most important issues today. Why is it so important? Quite simply, energy security has never been more critical.
The effects of global warming have been felt around the globe throughout 2023. Extreme weather conditions, from floods, torrential rains and unseasonably hot weather have been experienced around worldwide. In August 2023, Spain experienced the hottest temperatures since records began.
EU energy security
In addition to global warming, Europe’s vulnerability has been alarmingly highlighted by recent world events, such as the invasion of Ukraine by Russia in February 2022. Central Europe’s reliance on Russian gas has resulted in the worrying scenario of interruptions in supply and sky-high costs. Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen the cost of natural gas rise to an all-time-high, since 2008.
The global fuel shortage, ever increasing prices and a cost-of-living crisis have created the perfect storm, which calls for immediate action in order to save energy whilst keeping industry working.
Air con takes 20% of global electricity supply
To put the sheer scale of everyday energy usage into perspective, we only need take a look at the statistics produced by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The figures show that it takes 20% of the world’s electricity usage to keep air conditioning and fans working around the globe. This special report raises awareness of one of the most critical energy issues that will affect the world’s long-term energy security.
It doesn’t take a genius to see where this is going…as global warming kicks in, we’ll need more power to keep our environments cool. This will put unprecedented strain on every country to produce enough power and will also increase emissions, whereas in 2023 we should be looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
Spanish energy objectives
The Spanish government is working towards national ‘climate-neutrality’. The goal is to reach 97% renewable energy overall, with the specific aim of achieving 100% with regards to renewable electricity provision. Currently there is an enormous programme covering the development of solar and wind technology and renewable hydrogen. Equally important is the aspects of energy efficiency and energy savings. As Spain works towards achieving its electricity sector targets, the plan is to simultaneously phase-out fossil fuel and nuclear power.
The good news is that innovations are being developed every day. One such breakthrough is Coolnomix® This smart technology works in tandem with your current air con and cooling system. The technology works by powering down your air conditioning or refrigeration without reducing output or comfort. By reducing the run-time of the compressor, the electricity consumption is also reduced, yet the performance remains the same. This patented technology guarantees cost and energy savings of up to 40% on air conditioning, and is already used by industry giants such as Coca Cola.
The International Energy Agency report concludes that as a result of Spain’s electrification programme, there is an increasing demand for electricity across all sectors of society. Over the last 10 years, there has also been a modicum of decarbonisation due to the reduced usage of fossil fuels, which means the country’s carbon footprint is being reduced. Between 1990 and 2021, electricity consumption has risen 75.33% and carbon emissions have reduced by -4.03%..
Spain is now halfway towards reaching 74% renewable energy generation by 2030 (The National Energy and Climate Plan objective). Today, the majority of Spain’s electricity supply is provided by renewable energy, and less so natural gas, nuclear and fossil fuels.
The speed at which Spain can fulfil this goal and also achieve meaningful energy savings, will depend upon how willing commerce and private households are to adopt the latest innovations such as Coolnomix® and other energy conservation initiatives.
How can Coolnomix® provide the same level of output and at the same time reduce power consumption?
Coolnomix® makes significant energy savings by reducing the compressor run time. This is because the main cost of running air conditioning is the cooling system compressor. When running without the connection to the Coolnomix® smart technology, the compressor running for much longer than required. With just one small device you can save energy and cut your carbon footprint.
Can Coolnomix® be used in conjunction with large air conditioning systems in hot countries?
Yes, the Coolnomix® smart technology is the perfect system for reducing power consumption when running commercial air conditioning and refrigeration units in hot countries like Spain. The system can help all sizes of business, including large organisations to achieve significant reduction in electricity consumption and cost savings.
Is it possible to try Coolnomix® before you buy the system?
No problem, you can book a free 30-day trial so you can see for yourself the energy saving potential of using the Coolnomix® patented technology. What’s more, you not only save energy, you also save money and reduce your carbon emissions.
