EU Energy Efficiency Legislation Falls Short of Proper National Implementation New Cogeneration Study Reveals

Press Release Published 11 June 2018

New COGEN Europe National Snapshot Survey shows that the identified potential for additional cost-effective energy savings and CO2 emission reductions from cogeneration remains untapped due to weak national implementation of EU energy efficiency legislation. National experts surveyed warn that existing cogeneration capacity may also be at stake, if the Clean Energy Package fails to effectively deliver the “energy efficiency first” principle at national level.

Study Highlights Sound Primary Energy Factor Approach Needed to Inform Consumers on the Real Efficiency of Heaters

Press Release Published 15 May 2018

The Research Center for Energy Economics (FfE), today published a study on the Primary Energy Factor (PEF) for electricity and the corresponding CO2 Equivalent Emission Factor (CEEF) applicable to technologies coupling heat and electricity sectors. According to the study, commissioned by COGEN Europe, the additional electricity demand from sectors subject to electrification will rely less on renewable electricity and more on fossil fuel generation, compared to the average electricity mix. Based on the study, European renewable and efficient heat industry associations (AEBIOM, COGEN Europe, EFIEES, EGEC and EHP) call for a dedicated EU PEF approach for calculating the real efficiency of heating systems, which use or produce electricity, in order to inform energy consumers correctly and help deliver the EU energy and climate objectives.

Small scale CHP from biomass – a demonstration project in Southeast Sweden

CHP News Published 27 March 2018

Right now three different techniques for small-scale biomass-based cogeneration (gasifier, wet steam turbine and Organic Rancine Cycle (ORC)) are being built and demonstrated in southeast Sweden as part of the project Small Scale CHP LIFE+ (2014-2019), financed by the EU Life+ programme and partly by the Swedish Energy Agency.
