Organized by CAME's Corporate Social Responsibility department, we participated in the Webinar aimed at Sustainable SMEs on the relevance of implementing Energy Efficiency measures and their economic, social, technological and environmental impact and their link with the Sustainable Development Goals.
Don't miss out this very interesting seminar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPB4297I810
Interviewed by Dr. Micaela Tomassinni, Director of CAME CSE department, Experts José Luis Larregola and Daniel Bouille presented the development of their activities within the framework of the Energy Efficiency Project in Argentina and the impact of their activities in the SME sector.
Eng. Larregola developed the scopes and methodologies of the Energy Management Learning Networks. These are a space for collaboration that, through a series of meetings that take place within 12 months and with the guidance of experts, share their good practices with the aim of achieving a cultural change in their organization, analyze their production processes and detect savings potentials through an initial diagnosis and implement measures to achieve them.
This methodology also implies saving costs in its implementation, since the costs of hiring the experts assesing in the process are shared by all the institutions that are part of it. The results achieved are presumed to be sustainable, since the main capital is based on the training of members of the organization itself.
The savings achieved directly impact item # 13 "Action for Climate" of the SDGs, and they translate into a decrease in CO2 emissions.
Together with CAME, we are carrying out a Network of 15 SMEs in the Province of Misiones, mainly made up of companies with a strong imprint on their regional economy, grass-roots, citrus and timber companies.
Lic. Daniel Bouille, expert for the development of a Proposal for the National Energy Efficiency Plan, considers that, in a post-pandemic situation, we will have a strong challenge mainly in achieving efficiency in the production of goods and services, and to achieve this we will need a better allocation of the role of energy.
The main objective of the plan is to improve or maintain the level of satisfaction of energy needs by decreasing gross energy consumption, assuming an increase in the level of productivity or at least not reducing it.Why is Energy Efficiency so relevant? It is a hidden source that cuts across all sectors, and can be applied to all uses or services, and there are savings opportunities in all productive activities. There is already a lot of evidence of this, which contributes to installing this energy dimension in business decision-making. Adding that its implementation has both economic and social, technological and environmental benefits.
Within the framework of the Energy Efficiency Project, we are working with a strong methodology that proposes to carry out a strict analysis of the initial situation, the selection of priority sectors, the identification of the main existing barriers and based on this, propose the appropriate measures and their way to implement and measure them.
One of the main barriers identified is the lack of information on the available potentialities of profits added to the existing capacities in organizations to identify these options. This has led in many countries to the creation of specific institutions that pursue this role. Ex: in France, ADEME, in Mexico and Colombia where the need for Energy Efficiency to be addressed transversally is addressed, with a competition from government actors from all portfolios so that they can be really effective.
CAME and its Corporate Social Responsibility department is an active partner in our project, a channel of communication with the national SME sector, and a great collaborator in the implementation of impactful activities.
