Solar Quarter in Bucharest

Solar Quarter, a total investment of 45 million euro, will be the first residential project in Romania. Quartier has photovoltaic solar panels to generate green energy. The 1,800 solar panels located on the roof blocks will produce over 600MWh / year.

Located in the south of the city, the project will have a total area of ​​over 61,000 square meters and will include 15 residential buildings in height basement + ground + five floors with a total of 1,000 apartments with one, two and three rooms.

The first phase of construction includes four buildings with a total of 296 apartments and arranging walkways and seating areas, with the completion date of the end of December 2015. Each block of the complex will be equipped with a power generation system composed of 120 photovoltaic solar panels placed in six rows each with 20 panels and an inverter.

ExpoEnergiE is an event dedicated to the energy market and the oil and gas industry, representing a networking platform for professionals in the field. ExpoEnergiE focuses on promoting the potential of these two industries, in order to attract investors.

The event gathers under the same roof the most important players in the market that will exhibit the latest products and technologies, offering to visitors the opportunity to be informed on the novelties of this market, to purchase products and services or to negotiate directly with suppliers. ExpoEnergiE is addressed to producers and distributors of conventional energy, renewable energy, technologies and equipment for oil and gas industry.

European background
• Europe 2020 Strategy aims to increase the share of renewable sources from the total energy mix to at least 20% until the year 2020;
• The Roadmap 2050 Project, funded by the European Commission, where "Romania has a key role to play. Romania needs to modernize and improve energy efficiency with the support of the European Union, as it is one of the main actors in securing supplies of Europe - a cornerstone of the future European strategy." - Philip Lowe, General Manager for Energy in the European Commission, Hotnews interview;
• Energy efficiency is one of the important sections in the European energy policy and one of the main targets of the Europe 2020 Strategy;
• As reported by Transelectrica (1/23/2014 edition) for the Romanian newspaper “Ziarul Financiar” (Financial Newspaper), in Romania during the last three months of 2013 the hydropower production decreased, but was offset by electricity generated by thermal power plants and wind farms.
• Romania's involvement in the development of the Southern Corridor gas pipeline system;
• In 2012, "the ten largest oil companies active in the local market have run businesses of almost 12.6 billion Euros, with 2.5 billion higher than in 2010" (Source: the Romanian economic magazine "ZF Energie" – ZF Energy).

A new energy program for Kiev was signed

Tuesday 4 August 2015 was signed memorandum on cooperation in the energy efficiency of residential buildings between Energy Eficiency Agency from Kyiv and City State Administration Kiev. "It is essential for the Agency to sign a memorandum of capital, the mayor, who has extensive experience in Western countries, which have become an example of energy efficiency in Ukraine". "We signed a memorandum of 21 including Kiev city administration intends to reimburse local governments or loan interest rate", - said Sergey Savchuk, the President of Energy Eficiency Agency and added that the State reimburses 20%, 30% and 40% of the loan amount. The program are focus to individual buildings and multifamily residents.

Energy efficiency programs only last month increased twice and the amount borrowed funds amounted to 250 mln UHA ( 10.6 milion euro ).

Kiev's mayor, Vitaly Klitschko said: "Energy efficiency is a priority not only for Kiev, but also for the entire state. The Ukrainians consume five times more energy than the European average. Therefore, the energy efficiency program is very important - not only saves money but also aims to enhance our country's energy independence. We will support this initiative in any way. "

Through this energy efficiency program are granted long-term loans for installing, changing or improving energy systems. Part of the amount is reimbursed by state or local authorities.

Heat pumps - efficiency with style

The Europe-wide requirement for providing energy efficiency classes of heating devices will soon result in significant changes for the whole heating industry and heating devices market. That is some good news for heat pumps supporters and those customers who are interested in economical heating - thanks to their high energy efficiency, the devices will reach the highest possible energy efficiency classes A+, A++, A+++. The consequences of introducing such classification will be one of the topics discussed during the 4th Congress of the Polish Organization of Heat Pump Technology Development. This year it will be held under the slogan "Heat pumps - efficiency with style". This year's meeting of the industry and heat pumps supporters will traditionally take place during the International Trade Fair for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency RENEXPO® Poland 2015, on 22-24.09.2015 in Warsaw.

All indications are that, like in case of our western neighbours, heat pumps technology in Poland is also likely to become the leading technology in providing thermal comfort, particularly in new facilities. Poland is the only country in Europe to have seen a significant increase in the heat pumps market for the fifth year in a row. The study "Heat roadmap with RES by 2030" will have its premiere during the IV PORT PC Congress. It serves as the development forecast for heating devices using renewable energy for single family detached houses in Poland.

Will conventional fuels be replaced by renewable energy sources and when can it happen? What will be the place of heat pumps in the future of power industry? A world-class scientist and expert, professor Hans-Martin Henning from Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, has already confirmed his participation in the Congress. He will present the vision of Germany energy security based on RES development and the use of energy efficiency potential, as well as plans for its implementation by 2050. Detailed analysis results, which are of extreme interest around the world, will be presented in Poland for the first time.

IV PORT PC Congress is also the premiere of new guidelines published by the association. For the first time, there will be a chance to learn about the new water quality standards for heating devices and the new standards for total annual costs. In addition to that, during the Congress PORT PC will discuss the new activities and initiatives planned by the organization for the coming year.

The subject areas of this year's meeting are of big variety. One of them will be Regional Operational Programs - within their framework high expenditures are granted for RES development. The Congress participants will learn in which voivodships particularly one can apply for the finance for heat pumps.

A panel discussion is another event taking place during the PORT PC Congress. This will be one of the few opportunities to get the answers at the source for questions concerning RES support schemes in Poland or development trends of heating technology.

The Congress is one of the most important points of the RENEXPO® Poland (22. - 24.09.2015, Warsaw International Expocentre EXPO XXI). It is here that the most prominent personalities from the heat pumps industry meet. Every year RENEXPO® Poland gathers hundreds of congress participants and fair visitors.

The following companies have already confirmed their participation in the Trade Fair: ASTAT Sp. z o.o., Mammoth Air Conditioning, Daikin Airconditioning Poland Sp. z o.o., Atlantic Polska, GALMET SP. Z O.O. SP.K., TM Instalacje Pompy Ciepła, ALFACO Polska Sp. z o.o., Wachelka INERGIS S.A. or CLIMAJAR Sp. z o.o.

If you are a producer, installer, heat pumps installation designer, representative of local government units or public administration, investor, student, or you just take interest in the renewable sources of energy, you cannot miss the IV PORT PC Congress "Heat pumps - efficiency with style" held on September 22, 2015.

Registration for the IV PORT PC Congress has already started and can be made online on the website of the 5th International Trade Fair for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency RENEXPO® Poland under the conferences tab. Organizers have prepared attractive participation fees and special promotions for the first 20 registered persons! You are kindly invited!
