Industry and SMEs
The energy consumption of the industry sector now accounts for about one fifth of the final energy consumption in France, ie 21%. It is the third most energy consuming sector after the residential and transport sectors.
Energy management in industrial environments is a complex topic that requires advanced engineering skills. Exenci possesses years of experience in this field, working along with industrial managers in many countries (France, Turkey, India) and has a solid knowledge of industrial processes and energy optimization methods (eg compressed air, industrial refrigeration, Steam production, boiler room, pumping etc.) adapted to different cultural and normative environments.
Exenci operates at the strategy and planning level in partnership with public decision-makers to support the implementation of public policies in the industry sector. Exenci also intervenes at the operational level on the adaptation of industries to the new environmental and energy standards, the modifications and optimizations of processes, the control of consumption, etc.
We have implemented this competency as close as possible to companies and industry as many projects require site visits or flash audits, etc. These regular visits allow us to stay close to the field and to be kept informed of the evolution of this particular sector in many different countries. Our field expertise is complemented by numerous experiments on public policy projects or international working groups etc.
Cities, Sustainable territories and Buildings
Some territories in France and around the world are already implementing exemplary policies that combines sustainable urbanism and energy mastery. Today, many initiatives and examples of successes exist, relayed by players who wish to deploy these solutions (Energy Cities, Cite’gie, European Energy Award) on more territory and participate to an ecological and citizen-friendly international local development. The stakes are to support the wishful territories to cope with the control of their energy and their territorial development.
Creating more pleasant territories, in a comprehensive strategy that must include energy control, preservation of local resources, energy independence and citizen integration, etc. – is also a lever for local development that creates jobs and enhances the value of the territory.
EXENCI experience’s on these subjects brings us a global vision of the territory and its energy systems and allows us to integrate in our analysis less known and innovative themes such as the energy demand for water sanitation systems, etc. EXENCI brings its expertise in energy efficiency and renewable energies in Turkey on coordination in the establishment of financing lines in cities and communities (ref project Turkey AFD).
EXENCI’s expertise in sustainable cities and territories revolves around the following key competences: energy systems; Sustainable mobility, sustainable building and buildings
EXENCI is experienced in international relations, which concern about 90% of our projects.
The mastery of international projects requires of course an ability to master the necessary international languages and know-how in pedagogy, skills sharing and group working. This requires, above all, a mastery of intercultural relations which can, far more than one thinks, impact the good conduct of a project.
Through each of our projects, Exenci get richer from the diversity of the encountered cultures which is transform in a genuine competence for the conduct of our missions.
Public Policies in Energy Efficiency
Exenci masters the entire range of public policies actions – from their conception to their implementation. We are convinced that each policy must be adapted to the context in which it is implemented and must be based on the reality of the ground.
Our strength is to rely on the context and the reality of the ground in order to be relevant in the definition of our projects. Moreover, Exenci has already participated in the implementation of public policies in different countries and contexts and has mastered the existing institutional frameworks. We have learned from these experiences, in order to offer an adapted solution to each mission we are entrusted: setting up innovative measures, designing regulations that are adapted to the reality of the field, financial mechanisms and market instruments, etc.
In particular, Exenci has participated in several countries in setting up public energy auditing policies; or in the establishment of loans, grants and other financial mechanisms to increase the energy efficiency or the share of renewable energies.
Exenci endeavors to push further measures and policies in order to seek out all the potentials of energy saving without choosing only the simplest measures. Public policies need to be ambitious and take into account the regulations of countries as a whole.
Finally, in many developing countries in which Exenci carries out its missions, public energy efficiency policies must not be differentiated from public development policies. These two issues are cross-cutting issues that must be considered within the same dynamic.
