Small-scale Combined Heat and Power

Small-scale Combined Heat and Power

  • IT Power (Australia) Pty Ltd

    Type: 
    Organisation
    Country of registration:
    Australia
    Relation to CTCN:
    Network Member
    Sector(s) of expertise:

    ITP Australia is a private sector organization, was established in 2003 and is part of the IT Power Group which was formed in 1981 to bring together specialists in renewable energy, energy efficiency and carbon markets. It offers expertise in renewable energy and energy efficiency, including research, development and implementation, managing and reviewing government incentive programs, high level policy analysis (including carbon markets), engineering design and project management. 

  • The State Energy Efficiency Scorecard

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective:

    The State Scorecard assesses state policies and programs that improve energy efficiency in our homes, businesses, industries, and transportation systems. It considers the six policy areas in which states typically pursue energy efficiency: utility and public benefits, transportation, building energy codes and compliance, combined heat and power (CHP), state government–led initiatives around energy efficiency, and appliance and equipment standards.

  • Tool for Rapid Assessment of City Energy (TRACE)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective:

    This tool is a decision-support tool designed to help cities quickly identify under-performing sectors, evaluate improvement and cost-saving potential, and prioritize sectors and actions for energy efficiency (EE) intervention. It covers six municipal sectors: passenger transport, municipal buildings, water and waste water, public lighting, solid waste, and power and heat.

  • Exploration Risk for Geothermal Power Investments - Approaches across the globe

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Generating electric power based on geothermal energy is attractive (i) because of the low CO2 emissions and (ii) because electricity can be produced constantly, independent of the availability of wind or sunlight. These characteristics make geothermal energy an important option for safe, cost-effective and climate friendly power production. The main caveats are that geothermal energy is not available everywhere and that it is uncertain whether the resource will actually be found at a given site.

  • Low-carbon, cost-efficient, cosy: Efficient lighting for public buildings

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    In public buildings lighting accounts for about 40% of the electricity costs. If you multiply this figure by the number of kindergartens, schools and universities, town halls, local government buildings and government departments, libraries, swimming pools and hospitals, then the total is enormous. Lighting in public buildings is currently consuming far more energy than necessary, with all the negative side-effects such as high running costs, electricity bottlenecks and damage to the climate. That can easily be changed.

  • Linking Heat and Electricity Systems: Co-generation and District Heating and Cooling Solutions for a Clean Energy Future

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This report highlights two underutilized but fully implementable technologies that efficiently integrate heat and electricity systems, provide flexibility and enhance energy security. It examines what restricts co‑generation and efficient district heating and cooling systems that can help de-carbonize the energy system.

  • Beyond Fire: How to Achieve Sustainable Cooking

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Approach:

    This report provides an overview of the main technological pathways to fundamentally transform the cooking sector in developing countries to sustainable sources. It provides an analysis of the main technological options and an estimate of their costs and feasibility.
