Envisioning and Testing New Models of Sustainable Energy Cooperation and Services in Industrial Parks

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 785134

Project Overview 

 

          S-PARCS presents a sound concept for reducing energy costs and energy consumption in industrial parks, while, at the same time, increasing renewable on-site energy production.

The pre-assessment of the seven Lighthouse Parks from Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Austria, which participate in the study, has shown a high potential for joint energy actions, many of which are transferrable to the community of S-PARCS Followers in the UK, Sweden, Turkey, Russia, Italy, Portugal, Austria and Norway.

Lighthouse Parks

A large Follower Community

Industrial Parks

Ennshafen

Location: Austria

Services within the park:

Construction & maintenance infrastructure; free space for

settlement; harbour master & general infrastructures; office space for rent; handling/ storage/ processing/ packaging/ bunkering /container terminal are provided by private companies.

Main achievements:

4 feasibility studies performed: Joint organized PV installations, Joint e-charging stations, Shore side electricity, Revamping of old colling water sewer.

Potential energy savings after project duration: > 400,000 kWh/year

Potential renewable energy production after project duration: 1,501 MWh/year

Potential reductions of GHG emissions: 121 tons CO2 eq / year

Cuoiodepur

Location: Italy
Key Stakeholder:
Public-private consortium of approximatively 80 companies as well as the local municipality of San Miniato.

Main achievements:

2 feasibility studies performed: District Combined Heat and Power, Anaerobic codigestion of vegetable tannery sludge.

Potential energy savings after project duration: > 59,000 MWh/year

Potential renewable energy production after project duration: 34,380 MWh/year

Potential reductions of GHG emissions: >10,000 tons CO2 eq / year

Borealis, Chemiepark Linz

Location: Austria

Experience in energy efficiency:

The companies are all energy-intensive industries. They are all subject to changing energy prices are thus well informed about efficiency potentials. Borealis provides and maintains the utilities:

natural gas, water, steam at different pressure levels. Borealis maintains a monitoring system providing frequent (e.g. 1 second) data. This is a well-found basis for energy cooperation and energy efficiency projects.

Main achievements:

3 feasibility studies performed: Waste Heat to DHN, Waste heat to process cold, Waste heat feed-in to local DHN

Potential energy savings after project duration (combined): >158,000 MWh/year

Potential renewable energy production after project duration: >50,000 MWh/year

Potential reductions of GHG emissions: 11,000 tons CO2 eq / year

ARTEA

Location: Spain

Services within the park:

wastewater treatment, maintenance

ECU:

Existing public-private partnership (companies involved). Tool to facilitate energy cooperation

Main achievements:

2 feasibility studies performed: Public LED lightning, Small hydroelectric plant

Potential energy savings after project duration: > 558,000 kWh/year

Potential renewable energy production after project duration: 268,800 kWh/year

Potential reductions of GHG emissions: 87 tons CO2 eq / year

Okamika

Location: Spain

Services within the park:

Wastewater treatment, rain water wollection, fuel and gas purchase and supply (and maintenance of installations)

Main achievements:

2 feasibility studies performed: Collaborative photovoltaic power plant, Small hydroelectric plant

Potential energy savings after project duration: up to 569,000 kWh/year

Potential renewable energy production after project duration: up to 1.5 Mh/year

Potential reductions of GHG emissions: up to 400 tons CO2 eq / year

Great success for the S-PARCS final event!

Great success for the S-PARCS final event!Due to the pandemic situation, the S-PARCS project partners haven’t been able to gather European stakeholders in the same room for its final conference. However, a remote half-day event took place, on June 15th, to introduce...

Online webinar – Italian only

Our Italian partners SSSA and Cuoiodepur are organising a webinar to present to Italian stakeholders the S-PARCS results and enlarge the discussion around energy cooperation solutions for indutrial parks. Join the webinar on Novemver 12th at 4 pm here.
