Case Study

Computer company reduces energy costs and improves comfort

Bilgicom SRL is a small trading company offering more than ten thousand units of computer equipment in Moldova’s southern city of Comrat. The company constantly enhances its capacity by increasing the number of products, additional services and training the staff.

After fourteen years in business, the company focused on another aspect of business development – energy efficiency of production.
 
The company applied to MoSEFF to finance the replacement of a HVAC system and installation of a small PV system. Considering the southern location and Moldova’s electricity market, the investment deemed to be very profitable and perspective.
 
The MoSEFF engineering team assisted the company with verification of the technology, its technical and economic parameters, and profitability.
 
The €20,767 investment led to almost 50 per cent of electricity savings, making Bilgicom more independent from the volatile electricity market. The project allowed to significantly decrease the production costs, while maintaining the customer prices as low as possible without reducing the margins. Last, but not least, both the staff and the clients now enjoy the improved indoor conditions in the company’s shop.
 
The company has now become a promoter of renewable energy sources demonstrating the best principles of responsible living. Such business examples stimulate people to improve the quality of life and nurture the culture of wise and careful attitude to environment and its resources.
 
This way, the EBRD through MoSEFF supports implementation of sustainable energy projects by the private sector. Together, the private, residential, and public sectors can make a change in the energy consumption patterns and contribute to the environmental protection.
