Abstract

Several studies show that companies have a "general" approach to energy saving and that the resources are used in a poorly structured criterion: only the minority of companies are adopting specific strategies and sets measurable objectives over time. This approach generalized in energy saving, together with the perception of high costs for the construction/maintenance of solutions to improve efficiency, is the main barrier to the final development of the sector. It must be considered that in many cases, an entrepreneur not being able to assess in detail the technological solutions that are proposed, can be brought to make not appropriate choices, often partial and non-prioritized on the consumption profile of the company. In response to the previously enounced needs, the Department ABC of Politecnico di Milano has developed a tool able to offer an energy check-up of the whole system, with precise indications about the areas in need of interventions (at any level) in terms of energy (efficiency aptitude/priorities for action) and time of return on investment (range). The aim of this paper is to describe this tool and its applicative purposes.
