CO2 equivalent (CO2e): is a unit of measurement that expresses the impact of each greenhouse gas in terms of the amount of CO2 (carbon dioxide). Thanks to this unit of measurement, we can calculate the environmental impact of the various fuels with a single value.

 

Thanks to the contribution of AIEL we can see the benefits of using pellets also in the home.

To heat a house of about 150 m² with average insulation over a year, about 12 MWh of energy are needed.

Depending on the fuel used, both the unit cost and the emissions produced by this energy change considerably.

Pellets emit 10 times less CO2 than traditional fossil sources. Furthermore, considering the entire production cycle, from production to transport to the end user, the ENplus bulk pellet delivered to the tanker emits 4 times less CO2 than the ENplus pellet packaged in 15 kg bags.

The fuel prices indicated refer to the year 2020 in the Italian market, however it should be borne in mind that the rates of fossil fuels may vary from region to region based on the area and average annual consumption. In these cases, therefore, as there is no univocal price, an average value between the minimum and maximum price was used.Important Notes: the values shown are to be considered indicative but at the same time reliable to understand the economic advantages linked to the use of pellets compared to other fuels.The economic advantage is linked to the tariffs applied, which may vary from state to state.

 

With reference to the 150 m2 house with an annual consumption of 12 Mwh, the annual bill in the various cases will be:

FUEL PRICE OF 12 MWh
LPG 1.404,00 €
Oil 1.344,00 €
Agricultural Oil 828,00 €
Natural Gas 804,00 €

Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

 

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
