KeelWit Technology lectures in convergence 2014: Annual Conference of Best Practices in the Numerical Simulation Industry

ANSYS Iberia organizes an annual event where leading engineering companies are invited to lecture on the most relevant and successful projects developed through numerical simulation during the previous year. KeelWit was invited to lecture its project “Improving Flow Characteristics and Turbulence throughout the Exhaust Duct of a Gas Turbine for Combined Cycle Power Plants”. The audience of over 150 people was formed by engineering teams of some of the most relevant engineering companies in Spain such as Técnicas Reunidas, Empresarios Agrupados, ITP, CTAG, Tecnalia, Navantia, o Tecnatom.

Energy efficiency certificates results after 12,000 m2 audited by keelwit technology

KeelWit Technology has made its own statistics about the results obtained after auditing the energy efficiency of 12,000 m2 of homes and office buildings since Energy Efficiency Certificates became compulsory in Spain in June 2013 for any property sale or rental. The vast majority of buildings audited (87.8% as shown in attached pie chart) obtains an “E” level in a scale from “A” (representing an optimal energy efficiency) to “G” (meaning a building where a great part of the energy used for heating and cooling is wasted due to inappropriate building materials or old HVAC equipment). Only 7.8% of the audited buildings get a poor result such as “F” or “G”. When this same analysis is performed with nationwide results obtained by all auditors, results are much worse, showing 35% of the buildings obtained “F” and “G” levels, as seen in the attached pie chart. The main reason for this difference is that the biggest part of KeelWit’s audits has been performed in high standard private homes and office buildings of recent construction, belonging to Promora, a real estate agency specialized in the sale and rent of luxury homes, chalets, townhouses, office buildings and mansions in the capital city’s most coveted neighborhoods. When both charts are compared we can easily understand the need to carefully choose the house to rent or buy as well as the need to gradually improve the energy efficiency of existing buildings, especially due to their age when looking at the nationwide average. There is a need to increase public knowledge of the relevance of energy efficiency results. In order to do so, regional governments...

KeelWit Technology starts an energy efficiency improvement project in Lilly’s plant in Alcobendas, Madrid

Lilly is one of the 10 leading pharma companies in the world, a global corporation with a strong commitment with R&D. Lilly’s plant in Alcobendas is one of the main plants worldwide the company has. Lilly has an Environment Sustainability Department that leads the environmental management system of the company. Their effort is to reduce the impact on the environment of their activity and to allow a sustainable growth. This leads the company to set ambitious targets in water and electric power consumption reductions and to constantly reduce emissions. As a result of their commitment with energy saving, Lilly shall apply an energy efficiency project to reduce the energy consumption of the cooling system installed in the plant, and has asked KeelWit Technology to develop a project to do so. KeelWit shall apply Keemo ® methodology, introducing optimization algorithms to the activation and control of the system involved, significantly reducing the linked power consumption, without relevant...

KeelWit studies Toyota Kuruma’s energy efficiency

Using Enefgy’s smart metering as a service, KeelWit Technology has performed an energy audit in the two main facilities of this well-known Toyota dealer in Madrid. Based on the last 12 months consumptions of water, gas, propane, diesel and electric power and after a deep analysis of both facilities and the equipment installed in each of them, and with the real-time information on smartmeters’ readings provided by Enefgy’s web based platform, KeelWit has presented several energy management advices to be undertaken to reduce energy costs. Certain modifications in employees working habits jointly applied with investments offering 6 to 24 month paybacks would allow savings of up to 30k€ (water + fuel + gas + electricity) and over 50 tons of CO2 emissions, equivalent to the emissions coming from 14 vehicles, 23 buildings or the carbon capture of 1.295 new trees being planted. Both the savings arisen and the possibility to set a number of energy efficiency and environmental indicators that might guide the dealers and establish a benchmark amongst dealer networks make KeelWit confident in the extension of this same philosophy of project in other dealers. Environmentally concerned dealer networks and brands would be likely to get involved in this kind of projects that allow savings whilst contributing to sustainability.
