Transcript

  • 1. This project is funded by the European UnionThe role of successful pilot projects for RE business development The MED-ENEC experience RCREEE/MED EMIP Joint side event Sharm El Sheikh, 28 June 2009 Daniel Becker – Key Expert Business MED-ENEC www.med-enec.com
  • 2. The MED-ENEC experience This project is funded by the European Union• Most important for RE: legal framework• But: implementation takes a while (some years, often not successful in first round• Can we wait until then with starting RE activities? No!• In order to create markets, interaction is needed between companies and politics / administration www.med-enec.com
  • 3. RE pioneers This project is funded by the European Union• Good message: in most countries, even with literally inappropriate framework, some RE pioneers are active• Their business is based on – Niche markets – Growing competitiveness of RE – Growing customer interest & demand (!)• But still: companies need & deserve support www.med-enec.com
  • 4. Lobbying & discussion This project is funded by the European UnionKey role of RE businesses at early stage:• Market preparation• Develop business models• Lobbying function• Push for legislation• Dialogue on details of regulationsIn all countries which now have effective RE support in place, pioneering companies have been part of that process www.med-enec.com
  • 5. Measures of business support (1) This project is funded by the European UnionMED-ENEC, EuropeAid project from 2006-2009, has implemented good practice on business support:• Main element: pilot projects• Show technical and, even more important, economic performance under respective local conditions• 10 buildings in 10 countries• Realised under local conditions with local entrepreneurs (example: MENA Geothermal)Good results – 3 national Energy Globe Awards – follow-up activities in the countries – overall savings of 900 t/a or 45,000 t over lifetime – high potential for large scale implementation www.med-enec.com
  • 6. R4: Residential Buildings This project is funded by the European UnionAlgeria Jordan Morocco Palestine Syria www.med-enec.com
  • 7. R4: Non-residential Buildings This project is funded by the European UnionTurkey Israel Egypt Lebanon Tunisia www.med-enec.com
  • 8. Measures of business support (2) This project is funded by the European UnionFurther: Build networks among (often still isolated) stakeholders• Dedicated events established (e.g. on building trade fairs), combining local companies, international experts & representatives from administration• Supporting exchange of knowledge & good practice and facilitating match making (reported 3 Mio. additional turnover generated) www.med-enec.com
  • 9. Measures of business support (3) This project is funded by the European Union• online help desks built up via website partnerships between EU & MEDA countries• Up to date & quality proven information made available• Business data base with virtual market placeGood overall success – why?• Secret behind: listening to entrepreneurs for understanding of actual needs www.med-enec.com
  • 10. Project Objective This project is funded by the European Union“To give a boost to energy efficiency measures andto the use of solar energy in the construction sector,in order to reduce both energy supply requirementsand the ever-growing impact on the environment ofair-conditioning installations.”Indicator: MED-ENECImpact reports show positive and significant trends,impacts of pilot measures are recognized by policymakers and reflected in supporting regulations andincentives. www.med-enec.com
  • 11. RE Technology TransferA success in PalestineRCREEE/MED-EMIP 2nd IRENA PrepConJune 28 2009Khaled Al SabawiPresidentMENA Geothermal 11
  • 12. Identifying the ProblemPalestine: Amongst highest energy prices in MENA region $0.17/kWh (July 2008) $1.98/L (July 2008) No sources of natural energy; depending on neighbouring countries for supply Amongst worlds highest population growth rates 3.99% in Gaza 2.9% in West Bank Building Loads – construction one of the main industries in Palestine 60% of energy consumption for building is for heating and coolingEnergy Efficiency a necessity Such a scenario creates enormous potential High energy prices provide incentive to save money 12
  • 13. First Geothermal SystemFirst Geothermal Heating and Cooling systemin a residential villa in Palestine West Bank, Ramallah Floor Space: 392m2 Three story residential villa in a large building block with 5 flatsPartnership between MED-ENEC, EU-EI Union Construction and Investment Corp. Palestine Energy AuthorityObjective Demonstrate the technical and financial feasibility of geothermal 13
  • 14. Brief BackgroundHow Does it Work? Earth stores 50% of the sun’s energy, as clean renewable energy Result: temp of Earth remains constant throughout year 7-21oC Heating Mode Cooling ModeSystem Components Geothermal Heat-pump (electrical) Ground Loop (ground hx) Distribution System o o 35 C -2 C o o 15 C 15 C 14
  • 15. First Geothermal SystemBasic Measures Reduction of heating and cooling load by 20% due to enhanced insulation in building envelope Improved airtight windows High efficiency electrically powered geothermal Heat-pump with vertical ground loop installed at 70m deep COP of heat-pump of 4.2 for heating and coolingConclusions Expected to reduce annual operating costs from $8,100 to $2,700 (67% savings) Simple payback period of 4.2 years Reduced energy consumption by 28,000kWh/a and eliminated 5,000kg of CO2 15
  • 16. First Geothermal System 16
  • 17. AftermathMENA Geothermal Dedicated to advancing geothermal in MENA region Installed 2 commercial geothermal systems, one in 4,600m2 UCI Headquarters 260kW Cooling, 190kW Heating Winner of 2008 National Energy Globe Award Enormous regional interest, potential 10 RFP’s and counting 17
  • 18. AftermathMarket Obstacles Higher equipment cost (imported) Import Duties and Customs Higher design and installation cost (drilling) High competition from established conventional market No market education, awarenessHow Can Government Help? VAT exemptions to end user No import duties on EE equipment Direct financial incentives (e.g. Canada, $5000 to retrofit to geothermal) Pilot Project Funding Demonstrate technical and financial feasibility Remove energy subsidies (socialize subsidies) 7.1% of regional GDP toward energy subsidies 18
