Bosch ensures efficient energy use in Morbegno, Lombardy  in Italy
The town of Morbegno in the Italian Alps near the Swiss border will be relying on the competence of Bosch Energy and Building Solutions Italy to boost energy efficiency in its public buildings and other facilities within the scope of a long-term project financing contract.

Among other things, it includes installing LED technology in all public lighting and in the interior lighting systems of municipal buildings, upgrading the munic-ipal heating systems while continuing to maintain the existing district heating network, bringing the fire protection systems and warning signs in all municipal buildings into line with current standards, installing new public lighting systems within the scope of the “Progetto Parchi Sicuri 2017” (2017 Safe Parks Pro-ject) and carrying out both routine and any required special maintenance of the upgraded systems.

The contract also calls for modernizing panelboards and replacing over 15,000 meters of power lines, installing a solar power system and an air-water heat pump, and implementing a number of “smart city” functions such as a 24/7 call center, remote control and management of systems, and new photovoltaic systems on municipal facilities with total capacity of 45 kWp.

Under the terms of the contract, Bosch Energy and Building Solutions Italy will plan and implement all of the measures and ensure that everything works properly over the next 20 years. “The contract with Bosch will give our town technologically advanced, high-quality equipment and systems,” says engineer Giorgio Ciapponi, who is responsible for the project on the Morbegno town council. “We’re also confident that we will save money in the long term by hav-ing Bosch maintain and operate our systems.” Carlo Papi, Commercial Direc-tor of the Public Administration Division of Bosch Energy and Building Solu-tions Italy, explains: “Working with a certified energy service company (ESCo) like us is a way for small communities like Morbegno to significantly improve their energy efficiency. The available public funding often isn’t enough. We’re going to invest 2.63 million euros in this project.”
