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.
The dates are set for next year’s leading event dedicated to energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions. From 23 to 27 June 2014, the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) will take place in Brussels and across Europe. In the coming weeks and months, the EUSEW website will be updated with useful information for both event organisers (Energy Days) and participants.
Members of the European Parliament last week (7 November) expressed overwhelming support for energy efficiency in any forthcoming EU 2030 energy and climate legislative framework.
New figures released by Eurostat for the year 2011 reinforce the strong contribution made by combined heat and power (CHP) to the EU’s energy supply – Europe's CHP capacity has fractionally increased.
CHP/cogeneration installations serving the all-important public sector are once again winning awards on both side of the Atlantic. Many public sector organisations are using no-capital financing deals with private sector energy services companies to install CHP schemes as part of their efforts to meet politically-set energy and carbon saving targets.
