Revisión y evaluación de una herramienta de planificación energética regional


Oferta Tecnológica
Una institución eslovaca del sector energético ha participado en proyectos para el desarrollo de una herramienta de planificación energética regional. Se trata de una herramienta de planificación sencilla y de fácil manejo para administraciones locales. Esta herramienta consiste en una base de datos y un modelo informático que permite a las personas encargadas de la toma de decisiones evaluar los mercados y el impacto de nuevas tecnologías y políticas energéticas. La institución busca socios para intercambio de información y fines de formación. El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de cooperación y comercialización con asistencia técnica.


Slovak institution sought for partners for a review and assessment of a model - local and regional energy planning tool
A Slovakian institution active in the energy sector has participated in join projects with a result - a software tool developed as a dedicated local and regional energy planning tool. It provides a simple and user-friendly planning tool for local governments. They are looking for partners for information exchange and training. Prefered types of cooperation are via commercial agreement with technical assistance and via technical cooperation agreement.
Slovak institution is offering a cooperation on strategic assessment framework for the implementation of rational energy. It consists of an engineering-economic bottom-up model, designed for assessment of first-order impacts of "rational" (i.e. renewable and new non-renewable) energy technologies on a national, regional or local level against a background of different policy instruments and scenario assumptions. It is a framework that consists of a database and a computer model that provides decision makers with a tool to evaluate the markets and impact of new energy technologies and policies.
With the focus on sustainable development, significant EU and national funds are given to energy programmes, with energy planning becoming more decentralised across Europe. However, local participation in project development may be ineffective due to deficient understanding of energy options and potential lack of communication between developers and authorities. Avoiding or delaying project realisation thus hinders the widespread development of sustainable energy in Europe.
Taking into account previous experience, the new version of the Strategic assessment framework for the implementation of rational energy - local planning (SAFIRE-LP) model has been developed.
It is developed as a dedicated local and regional energy planning tool. It is providing a simple and user-friendly planning tool for local government. A spatial planning element is being integrated, while focusing on the non-energy costs and benefits of the energy process by addressing the needs and concerns of the user. The new version has been translated and tested in municipalities in Lithuania, the Slovak Republic and Slovenia.

Valuable feedback was received through the implementation and monitoring of the Tradable Green Certificates (ASCerT) approach in five countries, namely Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania. These case studies also led to important conclusions including the need for harmonisation of national green certificate systems before integration of accession countries.
Additionally, it was shown that the emergence of regional green certificate markets or bilateral reciprocity arrangements between countries could enhance the prospects for international trade.

The developed software could be used e.g. as an energy planning tool for local governments. The Slovak institution is looking for partners or further technical development and testing. They prefer a cooperation via commercial agreement with technical assistance or via technical cooperation agreement. These types of cooperation were selected because they fit todays need of this institution in a very best way.
Advantages and Innovations:
Software was installed in selected cities. Required data were entered and analysed. Simulated scenarios confirmed initial expectations. Significant potential for CHP (Combined Heat and Power) units´ installation and solar as well as geothermal energy utilisation was identified. Proposed scenarios were focused on utilisation of renewable energy sources in domestic and commercial sectors for domestic heating systems preparation. Project potential (geothermal source) was identified in open-air swimming pools as well. The software tool offers user-friendly, transparent, and cost-effective sustainable energy planning at regional level. It is overcoming some of these problems and barriers. Its exploitation and application in Slovakia had direct influence on renewable energy sources utilisation in regions and on energy import. Synergy effects were reduction of CO2 emissions, employment increase as well as others social benefits. Standardisations of planning process and rising of awareness were very important.
