Solar Energy of Azerbaijan

In 2014, the share of renewable energy in Azerbaijan in total consumption has reached 2.3%. But till 2020 Azerbaijan is planning to bring the share of renewables in total energy consumption to 9.7%. The potential of solar power in Azerbaijan is estimated to 5000 MW. According to the national plan for the development of renewable energy industry, Azerbaijan is planning to increase the capacity of Photovoltaic up to 600 MW till 2020.

Solar thermal energy is considered as a promising direction, and until 2020, state officials predicting its capacity up to 350 MW. State Agency on Alternative and Renewable Energy Sources has announced the launch of a new state programme of renewable energy development. As part of this program, in 2015 it is planned to start a construction of new generating facilities with a total capacity of 300 MW.

The project will be focused on the generation of the main types of «green» energy. Despite significant hydrocarbon reserves, the government of Azerbaijan considers that it is very important to increase the share of solar, wind, geothermal waters, rivers and biogas from waste in energy system of the country. As for the end of September 2014, seven solar power plants are at the final stage of development, and for the next six months energy facilities construction will be started in Azerbaijan.

KIC InnoEnergy mobilizes 80M euros of investment for supporting 65 innovation projects

KIC InnoEnergy announced today the 2014 results of its sustainable energy innovation project support programme, which recorded 28 newly enrolled high potential project consortia in the space of just one year, adding up to 65 new projects since 2013.

The success of this investment programme, which aims to boost sustainable energy innovation in Europe, is largely based on KIC InnoEnergy’s game-changing approach to the innovation challenges faced by Europe’s research and business communities. The programme offers a business environment unique in its ability to effectively remove the usual barriers to innovation, such as smart and safe partnering, strong IP protection, and market entry support.

Diego Pavia, KIC InnoEnergy’s CEO, commented: “These results show that the right partnerships,  competencies and results can emerge, and European innovation can thrive. We expect 2015 to be even more successful. The new call for innovation project proposals that we recently launched has already generated a tremendous amount of interest, and we believe that it will continue to do so until the call ends in April.”

In total, more than 50 innovation projects are currently within KIC InnoEnergy’s Innovation Cycle. All of those projects are directly linked to KIC InnoEnergy’s greater objective of meeting our key energy challenges, which include decreasing energy costs, increasing the availability and security of supply, and reducing carbon emissions.

“We invest in projects that have a genuine potential to meet the world’s pressing energy and environmental challenges, and provide them with the platform, partners, tools and financial backing needed to actually realise this potential. This will translate in new patented technology, products and services, but also ultimately means more competitiveness and jobs for Europe. We are proud to be making such tangible contributions toward a greener future for all,” concluded Pavia.

Energy Efficiency in Western Romania, 4th of March 2015, Expo Arad

In order to reach the 20-20-20 up to 2020 objectives, energy efficiency detain the major role, a proper energy consume being realized by combining energetic management with implementation of renewable energy sources and CO2 emissions reduction. All three considered desiderates, regarding as redemption/rationalizing of energy consume at all levels of the energy chain and to pave the way for further energy efficiency improvements beyond that date are mentioned in the European Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU from 04th December 2012.

Energy efficiency has proved to be a cost-effective strategy for building economies without necessarily increasing energy consumption. Thus, it represents a way of managing and restraining the growth in energy consumption. Something is more energy efficient if it delivers more services for the same input, or the same services for less energy input, offering in the same time a powerful and cost-effective tool for achieving a sustainable energy future.

Improvements in energy efficiency can reduce the need for investments in energy infrastructure, in existing and new government owned and/or leased facilities, cut energy bills, improve health, increase competitiveness and improve consumer welfare and purchasing energy efficient products. Environmental benefits can also be achieved by the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions and local air pollution. Energy security - the uninterrupted availability of energy sources at an affordable price -  can also profit from improved energy efficiency by decreasing the reliance on imported fossil fuels.

An important role in implementing energy efficiency measures is taken by Energy Services Companies (ESCOs), providing a real promising opportunity to achieve greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
