The reduction of energy consumption in economies, and in the industry sector in particular, has increasingly become a constant concern.

Energy saving is a major issue to reflect on, but it is essential to consider both energy efficiency indexes and the resulting ecological impacts.

Energy efficiency is nothing more and nothing less than the rational use of energy, regardless of whether it is electrical, solar or another type of energy. It is simply a more efficient use to achieve a certain result.

We should not consider a low-consumption solution to be more efficient than a higher-consumption solution, or vice-versa.

Higher power doesn't mean better results, just higher consumption. This happens in the automotive industry: a car that does 0 to 60 mph in 5 seconds just shows that it has fast acceleration - we can't say that it gives better results than another car that takes 10 seconds.

There is a preconceived idea in society that higher power necessarily produces better performance, which in reality may not be the case. In itself, power alone may only lead to higher consumption and may not translate to greater production efficiency.

Nowadays, the challenge for the industry is precisely this, to produce excellent performances in optimal times while minimising energy consumption. As in the automotive industry, the discussion goes beyond the power of vehicles, where response time and consumption are elements that are increasingly valued.

Therefore, energy efficiency analyses must instead focus on comparing the result of operations, consumption and operating times.

This concern for the sensible use of energy and the resulting economic rationality has led to some changes being made in the equipment that we manufacture, summarised in the following points:

  • Improved thermal insulation of water coolers, cabinets, tables and refrigeration chambers;
  • Use of high-efficiency motors;
  • Better ventilation systems;
  • Implementation of mechanical construction techniques that achieve more efficient results.


In addition to making energy efficiency improvements to our equipment, we have also made changes to our internal manufacturing production processes, and have replaced our equipment and tools with more efficient and ecologically less aggressive versions.
