Energy efficiency: a strategic requirement for industrial policies

Cogeneration has proved to be an economically and environmentally friendly technology that is ideally fit for highly specialised sectors such as the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors. As part of its green policy, Eli Lilly, a global pharmaceutical company headquartered in Indianapolis (USA), invests in energy efficiency on its production sites, also in Italy. As early as the 1990s, Eli Lilly Italy explored the potential of cogeneration; after a few evalutations, in 2012 the company installed a 2.7 MWe system that allows it to be almost entirely self-sufficient for its electricity and thermal energy production. The economic and climate benefits are clear with lower energy bills and less emissions!
