|Energy Efficiency Description:|
From 1994 to date, IDAE has signed voluntary agreements to improve energy efficiency in nine industrial sectors, which form part of ten industrial associations. These represent 56% of the total consumption in Spain's industrial sector. Sectors that have signed voluntary agreements are pulp and paper, structural ceramics, hollow glass, tanning, cement, food, chemicals, automobile accessories and textiles. The duration of these agreements varies from one to several years, depending on the sector concerned. These voluntary agreements result in activities and projects aimed at energy saving, installation of cogeneration systems and replacement of other fuels for natural gas and biomass. In energy terms, actions undertaken to date following such agreements represent a total energy saving of 641 ktep (equivalent to 4.5% of industrial consumption), replacement by natural gas of 341 ktep, installed power in cogeneration systems of 285 MW and biomass replacement of 38 ktep.
