Cogen Europe, the European association for the promotion of cogeneration, is to highlight results and recommendations from a flagship bioenergy CHP project at a conference in Brussels next month.
Over the last two years eight European model towns and regions participating in the CHP Goes Green project: Berlin, Frankfurt, Hannover, Graz, Paris, Lyon, Prague and Riga. The conference will present its strategy for the wider implementation of green CHP based on the replicable, widely deployable successes of the model cities.
Initial findings, says Cogen Europe, show that the advantages of bio-energy CHP are not yet fully understood and deployed, and that there is considerable untapped market-potential for bio-energy CHP.
Key success factors such as linked market actors, a successful business case for the investor and a local public body with responsibility for implementing energy efficiency/CO2 reduction improvements, will be elaborated at the Final Conference in Brussels.
The components of a successful fuel supply chain, which remains a particular challenge for significant take-up of bio-energy related solutions will also be explored.
The free-of-charge conference, which takes place on Friday 19 April, will also look at bio-energy CHP in a broader perspective (including an update on technology and role of agriculture in the supply chain) and present several case studies.
