The European Cogeneration Review – Germany is the third in a series of country reports that COGEN Europe will issue over the coming 12 months on cogeneration in Europe. The ECR covers the latest developments in the cogeneration sector, looking at market potentials and policy implications.
Each year COGEN Europe recognises those who have contributed most to cogeneration through outstanding performance and achievement. The COGEN Europe Recognition Awards are an opportunity for individuals and organisations to gain recognition for their achievements in developing, applying and promoting cogeneration, and to demonstrate the strengths and skills of the cogeneration sector in the EU.
To address the challenges of a high level of intermittent renewables in the electricity network, the design of network services and related markets must allow high efficiency market actors to participate. Incorporating these actors enables the network to fully harness the best resources currently available. In addition, the market design should promote high efficiency as part of service provision, as clearly set out in the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and Third Energy Market Liberalisation package.
A new report from Challoch Energy (a member of COGEN Europe) provides valuable guidelines for national decision-makers on how to implement Article 14 of the EU's Energy Efficiency Directive (EED).
