The European Directives promote the energy consumption assessment in residential and industrial sectors in order to identify specific measures for getting energy savings. This paper presents the results of the energy use analysis, carried out for a wine manufacturing firm located in Southern Italy. The energy consumptions of the main wine production processes are investigated, showing that the cooling is the most energy-intensive user. Potential actions as thermal insulation of storage tanks and integration of solar cooling system are proposed and analyzed in terms of energy saving to improve energy efficiency of the refrigeration process in the winery.

Abstract

The European Directives promote the energy consumption assessment in residential and industrial sectors in order to identify specific measures for getting energy savings. This paper presents the results of the energy use analysis, carried out for a wine manufacturing firm located in Southern Italy. The energy consumptions of the main wine production processes are investigated, showing that the cooling is the most energy-intensive user. Potential actions as thermal insulation of storage tanks and integration of solar cooling system are proposed and analyzed in terms of energy saving to improve energy efficiency of the refrigeration process in the winery.
