As part of its Energy Saving and Energy Efficiency Programme, ice cream manufacturer Helados Estiu has developed a project for the introduction of energy management systems at its production plant in Ribaroja de Túria, Valencia.

This initiative has equipped the centre with tools to monitor and control amount of electricity used, thus helping to reduce energy consumption by 84.86 MWh per annum, as well as the associated greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to 44.21 tonnes of CO2.

This energy saving plan has been made possible thanks to the support received from the Spanish Institute for the Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE), under the auspices of its grants programme aimed at supporting energy efficiency initiatives within industry II, together with the collaboration of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the initiative ‘A Way to Make Europe’.




Project affiliated with the support fund for energy savings and efficiency within SMEs and large companies in the industrial sector, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and managed by the IDAE under the Spanish National Fund for Energy Efficiency with the aim of achieving a cleaner and more sustainable economy.
