Energy efficiency

Gamesa continued to make progress on paring back consumption in 2015, implementing measures to make the company more energy-effcient.

Over the course of the year, it carried out initiatives in several areas of the organisation designed to reduce consumption and boost energy effciency. These include the installation of solar panels in the Indian factories and the savings eked out across the Spanish factories by upgrading the lighting and temperature control systems. As a result of the energy rationalisation effort, the company forewent the consumption of 2,725,000 kWh, which is equivalent to 605 tonnes of CO2.

In addition, Gamesa’s products are designed to guarantee environmental leadership and energy effciency. Against this backdrop, the company had its G114-2MW and G128- 4.5 MW turbines and its electric vehicle charging station certified for their eco-designs, pioneering the sector in this respect.

The eco-design process minimises the environmental impact of its products throughout their life cycle - from component design, the stage at which 80% of a product’s environmental impacts are defined, to the material selection, industrialisation, packaging and distribution, installation, operation & maintenance and dismantling phases. The use of eco-design criteria has enabled Gamesa to fine-tune its products in terms of their environmental performance, effciency and costs. Elsewhere, Gamesa uses Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to evaluate the environmental burdens associated with a given product, process or activity, factoring in the entire life cycle. This process enabled it to secure environmental product declarations for its G128-5.0 MW and G132-5.0 MW turbines in 2015.
