The Energy Efficiency Certificates (TEE), also called white certificates, are established by Decree of the Ministry of Industry, in consultation with the Minister of Environment and Territory Protection 20 July 2004 (DM 20/7/04 electricity, DM 20/7/04 gas) subsequently amended and supplemented by the DM 21/12/07 determining the national quantitative targets of energy efficiency.
CO-VER Power Technology, as an ESCo (accredited by the GSE, UNI CEI 11352: 2014), offers a complete service including energy audits (pursuant to art. 8 of Legislative Decree no. 102/2014) , measurement campaigns, monitoring systems, in order to identify necessary actions aimed at reducing energy costs, until the proposed activities relate to the preparation of documentation for the application and management of paperwork for the GSE, in order to obtain the TEE for subsequent commercial use.
The process begins with documentary and experimental analysis at the Client’s plant to record process data and associated consumption.
The process continues with the study of potential improvement actions to reduce energy consumption based upon the monitored data defining, with the Client, objectives and consequent actions to be taken in the light of technical and economic feasibility studies.
CO-VER Power Technology also provides services for researching proposals for funding related to incentives for the running of energy, supporting the customer during the application procedure in order to ensure the allocation of the contributions.
WHAT WE DO
Frequently asked questions about the service.
What are the energy efficiency certificates, white certificates and the TEE?
Who issues the TEE?
The TEE are issued by the GME in favour of the distributors, of the companies controlled by the same distributors and of the companies providing energy services (ESCo) with the scope of certifying reduction in energy consumption through implementation of projects aimed at increasing energy efficiency.
What is the ISO 50001?
The UNI CEI EN ISO 50001 “Energy management systems” outlines the requirements needed to create, start-up, maintain and improve an Energy Management System (EMS).
What is meant by Energy Management System (EMS)?
The European standard UNI CEI EN ISO 5001 defines the “Energy Management System (EMS) as the components of an organization aimed at defining an energy policy which outlines relevant objectives for the implementation of processes and procedures in order to achieve those goals”.
An Energy Management System (EMS) enables an organization to achieve continuous improvement of energy performance through a systematic approach.
What is an energy audit?
The energy audit, in accordance with Decree. 102/2014, is the analysis of the existing energy consumption status and the identification of solutions and related investments aimed at reducing consumption.
Which companies are affected by the mandatory energy audit?
According to Decree. 102/2014, large companies and enterprises with high energy consumption (energy-intensive users), regardless of their size, had to carry out an energy audit by 12.05.2015 and subsequently have had to perform this procedure every four years.
Large enterprise are considered to be those companies employing more than 250 people and whose annual turnover exceeds 50 million Euros or whose annual balance sheet total exceeds 43 million Euros.
Energy-intensive companies are considered to be those entities included in the list drawn up annually by the Equalisation Fund for the electricity sector under Interministerial Decree 5 April 2013.
Which entities are entitled to carry out an energy audit?
Decree 102/2014 gives a precise definition of the entities exclusively entitled to carry out energy audits:
- ESCOs (Energy Service Company) certified according to UNI CEI 11352
- EGE (Experts in Energy Management) certified according to UNI CEI 11339
- Energy Auditor
