Textile companies in Spanish province of Galicia can reduce their cost of production by adopting energy saving measures, according to a study undertaken by the regional government of Galicia.

The survey analyzed energy optimization in 17 textile companies in the region and found that these firms have a potential to decrease 20-25 percent of their spending on energy.

According to the report, the average energy consumption of the 17 textile companies was worth €81,500, which represented 2.2 percent of their annual turnover.

Electricity is the most expensive of all energies, followed by transport fuel, diesel and natural gas, the report added.

The document suggests optimization of the electrical power by replacing light bulbs with more efficient ones that can save up to 80 percent on the bill, and adjusting the pressure of compressed air supply, among other things.

It concludes that large companies, employing around 260 employees, invested 2.9 percent of their turnover in energy, whereas the comparative figure was 1.4 percent and 1.5 percent respectively for medium and small companies.
