in 2017, STBMA integrated an innovative system for the global supervision of electricity consumption in real time. The goal is to know more precisely its electricity consumption: ski lifts, artificial snow, heating, lighting. Actions leading to a reduction in this consumption are more effectively tested and measured.
Adapting the power of the installations to real needs, controlling and piloting the various heating systems, renovating energy-consuming buildings, retrofitting snow guns in order to consume less air, installing variators on the motors of ski lifts and water pumping, etc. All these actions have enabled STBMA to have good control over its electrical energy needs..
As carried out on artificial snow, the ski area is equipped with a data centralization system connected to each ski lift. These data allows us to control more precisely the availability of the main lifts as well as their energy consumption..
The second energy issue is the fuel used primarily for grooming the trails. The STBMA has generalized the principles of eco-grooming: training drivers in eco-driving to consume less fuel, using less polluting diesel, recycling of engine oils and lubricants... Weekly monitoring of grooming machine idle hours has significantly reduced the idle rate in recent years.
The STBMA regularly invests in its fleet of grooming equipment in order to benefit from the latest generation engines meeting antipollution standards. The result is a reduction in fuel consumption and therefore less polluting emissions for the mountains. The instructions regarding fuel energy savings (snowmobile, heating), employee training & awareness, the choice of subcontractors and local suppliers, etc. also play an important role in overall energy consumption.
The STBMA wishes to continue this effort and develop the use of clean energies with the help of its various suppliers.
