    Context

    Belgrade's district heating (DH) system is one of the largest in Europe with a total network length of 1420 km and capacity of over 2800 MW. The majority of the network is run on the natural gas boilers and fuel oil boilers with no waste heat from cogeneration or other sources being used and very little renewables (0,75% of capacity). Energy efficiency of the building stock is quite low, and the intensity of energy consumption is high. The city needs harmonized approaches to efficiency.

  • Biorefinery

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    With the surge in bio-based activities around the globe, a new concept called bio-refining starts to emerge. IEA Bioenergy Task 42 on Biorefineries defines biorefining as “the sustainable processing of biomass into a spectrum of marketable products and energy”. A bio-refinery combines/integrates a series of biomass conversion technologies to produce a range of products and (base-)materials, such as food, feed, chemicals, materials, oil, gas, heat and/or electricity. The concept is similar to a conventional oil-refinery where multiple petroleum products and fuels are produced.

  • Small-scale Combined Heat and power

    Type: 
    Technology
    Objective:

    Co-generation is the combined production of useful thermal energy and electricity (Combined Heat and Power, CHP) from the same primary fuel. CHP can take on many forms and encompasses a range of technologies, but will always be based upon an efficient, integrated system that combines electricity production and heat recovery. By using the heat output from the electricity production for heating or industrial applications, CHP plants generally convert 75-80% of the fuel source into useful energy, while the most modern CHP plants reach efficiencies of 90% or more (IPCC, 2007).

  • UNIDO call for proposals: Green technology deployment in industrial zones in Senegal

    News
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is looking for member of the CTCN Network that can provide services related to Green technology deployment in industrial zones in Senegal.

    Senegal benefits from a buoyant economy, nevertheless facing a number of challenges. In the country’s development plan - Plan Senegal Emergent (PSE) - a key component to address these issues is the development of integrated industrial zones. These shall attract foreign investment, bring new technologies and increase productivity and competitiveness.

  • CTCN in Iran: assistance for micro combined heat and power technology transfer

    Type: 
    News
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    CTCN is assisting Iran in technology transfer related to energy cogeneration. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is one of the new high technologies in Iran. Regarding its significant effects on reducing fuel consumption and environmental emissions, optimized techniques of energy supply is the best alternative for replacing conventional methods. Unfortunately, the lack of domestic suppliers is the major problem of CHP projects in Iran.
