Elaborazione e test di nuovi modelli di cooperazione energetica sostenibile e correlati servizi nei parchi industriali

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

Il progetto in sintesi 


 S-PARCS presenta un solido concetto per ridurre i costi energetici e il consumo di energia nei parchi industriali, aumentando, allo stesso tempo, la produzione di energia rinnovabile in loco.

La prevalutazione dei sette parchi pilota di Spagna, Portogallo, Italia e Austria che partecipano allo studio, ha mostrato un elevato potenziale per azioni energetiche congiunte, molte delle quali sono trasferibili alla comunità di S-PARCS distribuita in Regno Unito, Svezia, Turchia, Russia, Italia, Portogallo, Austria e Norvegia.

Parchi Pilota

Un‘ampia comunità di interesse

Industrial Parks


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.

Experience in energy efficiency:

Some very precise data and a well informed about efficiency opportunities, others not.
Many companies implement or analyze measures, especially PV and LED, some have low consumptions volumes and do not care, and some have higher consumption values but are not well informed.


Location: Italy
Key Stakeholder:
Public-private consortium of approximatively 80 companies as well as the local municipality of San Miniato.
Experience in energy efficiency:
Energy costs are not the principal production costs (but this is changing because of the rise of the energy costs) Five (interviewed) companies do not joint any purchasing group because they do not find any savings.
  • Energy cooperation is considered as a chance to highlight the efforts of industrial park towards a low carbon economy.
  • Reduction of energy costs.
  • Energy autonomy in order to avoid the risks associated with the volatility of energy prices and enhance the use of potential energy inp

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.


Becoming more competitive in the global markets, integrating the local communities, cost savings realizable by joint procurement of energy and important resources, making the industrial park design more attractive to companies, etc.


Location: Spain
Services within the park:
wastewater treatment, maintenance
Existing public-private partnership (companies involved). Tool to facilitate energy cooperation
Experience in energy efficiency:
Companies are used to work with energy management advisors LED lighting and energy audits are other measures adopted by some companies (individually)
  • Reduction of energy costs: competitiveness
  • Become greener: improve external image & work on Social responsibility

Impatti previsti









S-PARCS presented to the EMAS promoter Committee of the district

On 2020 April 17th, S-PARCS has been presented to the EMAS promoter committee in Italy, by Cuoiodepur. The industrial area of Ponte ad Egola and Cuoiodepur are in the Municipality of San Miniato. This industrial area belongs, with the others nearby, to the EMAS...

Fifth consortium meeting

Initially planned in Portugal, the S-PARCS partners met virtually for the fifth consortium meeting. During one full day, partners have exchanged on the progresses of the different actions, especially the Initial Assessment Tool, the feasibility studies and the...
