As one of the largest energy distribution companies in Slovenia, Energetika Ljubljana manages two of Slovenia’s largest infrastructure systems for remote energy supply: the Ljubljana district heating system and the Ljubljana gas distribution system. Its district heating system is one of the most environmentally friendly energy supply systems in existence but is still subject to heat losses and other challenges inherent to the distribution of hot water for heating.

The recently revised EU Renewable Energy Directive recognises heating and cooling as a key sector in accelerating the decarbonisation of the energy system. In order to facilitate the penetration of renewable energy in the heating and cooling sector, each Member State is required to increase the share of renewable energy supplied for heating and cooling by an indicative 1.3 percentage points as a yearly average for the periods of 2021-2025 and 2026-2030.

District heating systems that use industrial waste are increasingly common, which helps the transition to a circular economy.   There is no such thing as a perfect energy efficient process. The second law of thermodynamics states that all energy generating processes produce heat as a by-product. This so-called waste heat is often released into the atmosphere as hot air or water.

While the United Nations Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC) takes place from the 2nd to the 14th of December 2018 in Katowice, Poland, we have been investigating how district heating can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases.   Some modern systems are now using sustainable heating sources, like waste heat from power plants. Could this approach contribute to fight climate change?

“With the knowledge database, we make available valuable expertise and numerous publications, which we produced in cooperation with national and international partners in more than two decades. It merges the results of the three EU funded SDH projects SDHtake-off, SDHplus and SDHp2m as well as several national projects,” says Thomas Pauschinger from the Steinbeis Research Institute Solites, coordinator of the SDHp2m project.

This report supports the Building Efficiency Accelerator (BEA) and the District Energy in Cities Initiative, two initiatives under Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL). While the focus is on the City of Belgrade, the aim of this report is to support all public authorities and agencies developing and implementing integrated approaches to both energy efficiency in buildings and district energy supply. It provides guidance to decision-makers in Belgrade, while presenting universal recommendations to align district energy and energy efficiency in buildings.
