Syncro becomes even greener in 2024

More photovoltaic panels, more green energy and more services for Syncro System

Syncro System has increased its already impressive number of photovoltaic panels from 1172 to 1361 this year. This has boosted green energy production by 100 kWp from around 350 to 450 kWp.

The amount of renewable energy produced annually has risen by around 30%, from around 390,000 KwH to 500,000 KwH. This new figure corresponds to the average annual energy consumption of 180 families. In terms of environmental impact, it means a reduction in emissions of some 250 tons of CO2 equivalent a year.

The new panels capture solar energy and protect parked cars too

The new panels are installed on three canopy roofs in the company car park. In this way they serve a dual purpose: they not only capture solar energy and transform it into electrical energy for use in production, but they also act as a shield against the elements, protecting the cars of company personnel and visitors against the sun and rain. Thanks to these new roofs, the scorching summer sun and the sudden hail storms that are becoming increasingly frequent in the area no longer pose any risk to parked vehicles!

Green infrastructure: an important investment in the future for Syncro System

With this latest investment, Syncro System now self-produces 50% of the energy needed for production. This ambitious target was set by management back in 2016 when the first photovoltaic panels were installed and a policy of constant and progressive reduction in environmental impact was adopted.

We are slowly but surely approaching our ambitious target of energy self-sufficiency,” Luca Comunello, president of Syncro System, states. “We can be proud of the progress we have made in improving our company’s green credentials and in making an environmentally friendlier and more sustainable contribution to the community.”

Syncro and the green transition: 5 practical actions

At its new plant in Cassola, Syncro System has implemented a series of actions to reduce its ecological footprint:

1. Maximised use of natural lighting and ventilation thanks to roof windows.

2. Energy-efficient LED lights for artificial illumination.

3. 1361 photovoltaic panels with storage batteries.

4. Improved factory insulation.

5. Latest-generation energy-saving machinery.
