Regional Conference Renewable Energy Sources in District Heating and Cooling Systems

EBRD is organizing a two-day regional conference in Belgrade as part of the 50th International HVAC&R Congress and Exhibition.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Finance of Austria and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), is organizing a two-day regional conference in Belgrade as part of the 50th International HVAC&R Congress and Exhibition. The aim of the conference is to present the latest achievements in the application of renewable energy sources in district heating and cooling systems.

Speakers on day one are representatives of the Ministry of Mining and Energy of Serbia - State Secretary Zoran Predić and Assistant Minister Miloš Banjac – as well as representatives of sectoral associations, such as Paul Voss, Director of the Euroheat & Power association from Brussels, and Dejan Stojanović, Chairman of the Managing Board of the Serbian District Heating Association, and managers from companies in the sector - Dušan Macura of public heating utility JKP Novosadska toplana from Novi Sad, Alojz Poredoš, Chairman of the Slovenian Energy Association (SEA), and Dejan Jovišević of heating utility Eko toplane from Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The topics will include large solar thermal projects in the Serbian cities of Bor i Pančevo, where solar energy will be used to produce thermal energy for district heating systems, as well as the use of biomass and geothermal energy in district heating systems in Serbia.

Leading experts from Serbia, the region, and around the world will present strategic planning models, prospects for the utilization of renewable energy sources, technical challenges in the application, and available sources of financing for the implementation of such projects.

Announcing the conference, Bojan Bogdanović of the EBRD said: “Projects implemented in Europe demonstrate that renewables in district heating and cooling systems, without subsidies, can cost the same or less than fossil fuels. The EBRD, through its Renewable District Energy in Western Balkans (ReDEWeB) fund, will help countries in the region to start using green, renewable energy sources and reduce the adverse environmental impact of heating plants, while avoiding any additional burden on people’s bills.“

Regional conference Renewable Energy Sources in District Heating and Cooling Systems takes place as part of the 50th International HVAC&R Congress and Exhibition.
