Get the latest TRACER report “Projections for the transition to 2030/2050 in nine coal regions”

The TRACER project prepared a new report titled Projections for the transition to 2030/2050 in nine coal regions. It shows that most of renewable energy and other new energy technologies have a potential to develop in TRACER regions as a substitute for coal. Different pathways will need to be adjusted to local conditions and the transitional dynamics will be different in each country. While in Czech Republic, Serbia and Ukraine end of coal usage is not expected until 2030, the UK Government has committed to remove coal from the electricity mix by 2025 and it is consulting on bringing this forward to 2024.

Final conference of WIP’s HAW Kenya project in December

Online Conference: "Linking Science and Industry: Renewable Energy Research, Innovation and Higher Education in Africa", 15-16 December 2021

Together with the Technical University of Ingolstadt (THI), WIP is organising the final conference of their project “HAW Kenya - Network of Excellence for Universities of Applied Sciences”. The project HAW Kenya is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and its objective is to familiarise interested Kenyan universities, scientists, and junior staff with teaching practices at German universities of applied sciences in the field of renewable energies.

The final project conference, titled “Linking Science and Industry: Renewable Energy Research, Innovation and Higher Education in Africa” will take place online on 15-16 December 2021 and will provide a platform for exchange of knowledge and experiences about challenges and opportunities of renewable energies in Kenya / Africa.

Registrations are open.

Get the latest REPLACE report on “Residential heat decarbonisation solutions”

REPLACE report “Residential heat decarbonisation solutions – A handbook for installers, plumbers, chimney sweepers and investors” and all the latest project news

WIP, supported by the partners of the REPLACE project, has recently published the report “Residential heat decarbonisation solutions – A handbook for installers, plumbers, chimney sweepers and investors”, which provides professional intermediaries and investors with in-depth knowledge of the renewable heating and cooling systems options available on the market today.  
The objective of the report is twofold:
  • To make intermediaries (such as installers, chimney sweepers, building developers, energy advisors, etc.) well-trained facilitators of replacements and to enable them to measure and communicate expected energy and financial savings and wider societal benefits of heating and cooling replacements.
  • To informs investors (either financing institutions, public authorities, energy suppliers, or homeowners) about economic issues, best practices and innovative business models, as well as model contracts, for renewable heating and cooling solutions.
The report includes a comprehensive list of the renewable heating and cooling technologies currently available on the European market through concise and illustrated technology factsheets.

The report is available in English, German and in seven other languages.
This and many other latest news about the REPLACE project and its results are available in the new bi-annual newsletter.

Join the BIOFIT Final Conference in January

BIOFIT (Hybrid) Final Conference – How to implement bioenergy in existing industrial installations, 18-20 January 2022, online and Brussels

Colleagues from WIP Renewable Energies are involved in the organisation of the Final BIOFIT Conference presenting results from the project BIOFIT for fossil firing power, CHP, refineries, pulp & paper and biofuels.

On the first and the second day (18-19 January 2022) of the BIOFIT conference, four industry sessions take place. In each of these sessions, an overview on the respective industry sector is provided, followed by presentations on specific case studies and sectoral recommendations. After each industry session, interaction with sector experts and associations is enabled by a moderated roundtable discussion. The first and the second day are held online. The third day (20 January) starts with a policy breakfast at which recommendations, drivers and barriers will be discussed. The policy breakfast takes place in Brussels.

The aim of the conference is presenting and discussing main results of the BIOFIT project for industry stakeholders and policy makers to support bioenergy utilization as an alternative to fossil energy.

Updates on the Final BIOFIT Conference will be published on the project website www.biofit-h2020.eu.

RES4BUILD Pilot system installation in Greece started

The RES4BUILD project began the installation/assembly of the components, sensors and consumables of their pilot system in Greece (located at the NCSRD campus) in October 2021. The outdoor installation was finished by the beginning of November 2021 and we are now proceeding with the indoor part of the installation. The containerized room will host the multi-source heat pump of PSYCTOTHERM, a hot water tank, the building energy management system (BEMS) of THERMOVAULT, and all controls and power supplies.

The aim of the installation is to test in a real environment (office building) the innovative system developed in the project for covering all energy needs of a building with clean energy generated on-site.

HYPOSO platform opens to more regions

The HYPOSO Platform is an exclusive, password-secured online forum for hydropower stakeholders and was developed to enable also smaller companies and organisations to make direct contacts and facilitate business relations with each other.

Initially, access to the HYPOSO Platform was limited to companies/organisations from Bolivia, Colombia, and Ecuador in Latin America, and from Cameroon and Uganda in Africa, as well as from European countries.

Following requests from the European hydropower industry, it was decided that the HYPOSO Platform will be open from now on for stakeholders from Latin America and Africa, who come from other than the five HYPOSO target countries.

It is necessary to register for the HYPOSO Platform to use its full functionality.

In addition to the business forum, the so-called HYPOSO Map will be made available within the HYPOSO Platform. On the HYPOSO Map, for the five target countries, detailed information can be found about background & infrastructure, climate & hydrology, operational hydropower plants, and hydropower resources (i.e., > 2,000 potential sites).

Register now for the HYPOSO Platform for free!

MOST Closing Event in December

The current electricity grid has evolved over 100 years. Now, Smart Grids offer a bi-directional way of exchange of electricity and information between sources and consumers, and the devices they power, adding flexibility as a result. They are digital, foster renewable energy sources, energy efficiency and electrification of end-users.

To unleash all the benefits smart grids can offer, well-skilled experts must be trained. The MOST project lies in the center of energy transition – the highly innovative master course is designed to equip tomorrow’s experts with competencies crucial for the next step towards clean energy.

The MOST Consortium invites you to join our Closing Event on 13 December 2021, from 14:00 to 16.00 (CET). The conference will mark the end of the MOST project and look back on its results. Sessions will include:
  • A visionary keynote speech looking at the future of Smart Grid Technologies
  • Virtual tours to the Smart Grid laboratories of three top universities
  • A panel discussion on the role of the future Smart Grid professionals in the energy transition, featuring international energy experts
