8:30 - 9:00 Registration and coffee
9:00 - 9:30 Regulatory approach. Generation and sale of network cold from the perspective of the Energy Regulatory Office
Regulatory issues related to the production of cold are becoming more and more popular among energy enterprises. It is not clear, among others the requirement to obtain a license and, consequently, the obligation to set and present for approval the tariff to the President of the ERO.
  • Ice water as an energy carrier in the understanding of energy law
  • Concession and tariff obligations

12:30 - 13:00 Case study Germany (Cologne): Absorption cooling with district heat - a success story with some new challenges
Couple of cases where excess district heat form power plant is efficiently transformed into cooling in summer. The speaker will address the issue of temperatures ( supply and more important the return temperature issue ). Also, the speaker will talk about the impact of warming and climate change on these because higher ambient temperature has significant impact on sizing of these absorption units (Cologne). Finally the speaker will show three examples of using of river and lake water as cooling water.

14:15 - 14:45 Case study Spain: Solutions implemented in the Barcelona district cooling network
The representative of Aiguasol will introduce Districlima project. It was formed in 2002 to perform, for the first time in Spain, an urban network of distribution of heat and cold for use in heating, cooling and sanitary hot water. The system is based on centralized production of energy (heat and / or cold), preferably taking advantage of residual energy, energy products or cooling systems (with seawater or river) and distribution to buildings through a network of pipes formed by four pipes that run underground in the streets or arranged in service galleries. Nowadays over 870,000 m2 of roof, are heated with contracted power over 55 MW to 80 MW heat and cold, from a Central highly efficient located in the Forum area, as well as from the second Central, near the Plaza de les Glories, which has a central function of peaks and backup energy. The high efficiency of Districlima derived from the use of the steam generated by the neighboring treatment plant municipal solid waste (MSW) to produce almost all the hot water and much of the cold water. In addition, production equipment cooled by sea water, allowing to obtain yields in these machines to 4 times higher than conventional substituted equipment.

14:45 - 15:15 Case study Niemcy (Dresden): Adaptation options of thermally driven cooling and ice slurry for energy and cost efficient district cooling

In order to be able to lower the temperature in Germany heating networks and still implement heat-driven refrigeration, adjustments to the sorption refrigeration technology are required. In addition, combinations with electrically powered refrigeration or the integration of storage to solve the challenges are conceivable. The presentation will introduce some options.
