Exploring business case for cogeneration in EU28

A comprehensive assessment of meeting heating and cooling needs via long distance energy transmission

The debate of centralized versus decentralized generation of heat, electricity and cooling is getting more relevant in the EU policy scene in an attempt to identify the most resource-and cost-efficient solutions to meeting heating and cooling needs. …

Optimal Home Battery Sizing and Dispatch in EU Countries taking into account Battery Degradation and Self Consumption Incentives

Solar home battery systems are becoming popular to final consumers driven by substantial price reduction. The use of batteries couples solar energy generation and demand patterns increasing the use of the installation and the self-consumption rates. …

Energy price spread as a driving force for combined generation investments: A view on Europe

Combined generation of heat, cooling and power has a large potential to increase its share in distributed generation of energy. Such investments are driven by energy savings which result to operational profits. These profits are very sensitive to the …

Methodology development for the national assessment of energy efficiency potential in the heating and cooling sector

Member States are required to conduct a comprehensive assessment of "the potential for the application of high-efficiency cogeneration and efficient district heating and cooling" according to Article 14 of the Energy Efficiency Directive …

Methodology development for the national assessment of energy efficiency potential in the heating and cooling sector

Member States are required to conduct a comprehensive assessment of "the potential for the application of high-efficiency cogeneration and efficient district heating and cooling" according to Article 14 of the Energy Efficiency Directive …

Opportunity for cogeneration in nuclear power plants

Current thermal efficiency of electric power generation from nuclear power plants is about 33%, which is rather low since the rest of the energy is dissipated to the environment as heat. Such efficiency could be increased up to 80% through …

An overview of IAEA activities on seawater desalination using nuclear energy

A new version of the Desalination Economic Evaluation Program (DEEP) has been released in February 2011. This version presents new features and easier usability for both newcomers and experts. The new version allows easier comparison between …

An international overview of economics of nuclear desalination

As a viable option to meet water scarcity and mitigate the adverse environmental impact caused by large-scale desalination plants using other fuel sources, the economics of seawater desalination using nuclear energy is yet to be realized through …
