The energy bill drowns the neighboring communities. However, as it stands from ipsom, energy consulting, energy efficiency in Spain it is the tail of Europe, above all in the field of building. And that, taking into account that the expenditure of energy in the neighboring communities, is between 20 and 35 per cent of the total expenditure.
Energy efficiency in the community of owners is an issue which, in Spain, is neglecting, as confirmed from ipsom. However a proper management of resources and a proper maintenance, the energy bill could reduce between 10-20%.
Due to mismanagement of the energy efficiency that usually take place in the Spanish buildings, still cold in winter and heat in summer. The buildings were not built up thinking in energy savings, nor in the comfort, when, on the contrary, there are many opportunities for improvement. Thus, investments for the rehabilitation of buildings have a 20% bonus.
Among the improvement options for saving energy in communities of owners are found, for example, negotiate the contracted rate and adjust the supply, control the use of energy, replacing lighting systems with LED technology (incremental savings of up to 80%) and, finally, is of great importance, the thermal insulation.
