Masterplan on long term energy efficiency and exploitation of renewable energies, Bahamas

Customer: Ministry of the Environment Nassau, The Bahamas, 2009 - 2010

The Consultant prepares a master plan to promote energy efficiency in hotels, residential buildings, public buildings, etc. and to exploit renewable energies for long-term reduction of dependency on oil imports. For the different buildings energy audits are performed to determine the current baseline and the need for energy efficiency measures. Considered as renewable energies are, among others, wind energy, solar photovoltaics and energy from the sea as well as energy recovery from wastes through thermal treatment and extraction of landfill gas. Finally, obstacles to implementation are identified, environmental impacts are described and a strategy drawn up, including political measures to realize the identified energy efficiency and renewable energy potentials.

GHG Mitigation: TOR for CCS Pilot Projects, Germany

Customer: EIB European Investment Bank, Luxemburg, Luxembourg 2010

The EU Emission Trading Directive 2003/87/EC is now reserving up to 300 million European Union Allowances (EUAs) for new plants up to 31 December 2015, to promote construction of pilot power plants with Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and renewable energy technologies. The European Commission has commissioned the European Investment Bank (EIB) to develop terms of reference. The Consultant has been appointed by the EIB to assist in their drafting, and they will then be used to select firms that can undertake the contract award procedure.

Strategy development for renewable energies, The People's Republic of China

Customer: Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) San Francisco, USA, 2010

China, with its fast pace of renewable energy deployment, must draw on international know-how for exploiting renewable energy. The Consultant supports stakeholders and recipients of Energy Foundation grants in developing renewable energy deployment strategies, specifically by informing of European experience. A study tour of photovoltaic plants is arranged for a Chinese delegation of 14 persons in Germany and Italy to show actual installations and impart information on how these plants operate in practice.

Development of new CDM methodology and two variants of existing ones in the solar energy sector, Germany

Customer: Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Reactor Safety (BMU), Berlin, Germany, 2009 - 2011

The Consultant develops a new CDM methodologyand expands on two existing ones (ACM0007, ACM0002) in the sector of solar thermal power plants. This is done with reference to ongoing power plant projects in Iran for an integrated solar combined cycle and in Botswana for a solar thermal power plant. In these, a solar thermal unit is integrated into an existing combined cycle plant, and a simple cycle gas turbine power plant is converted into an integrated solar combined cycle power plant, finally with consideration of the use of desalinated water for cleaning the solar mirrors.

Renewable energies workshop in Beijing, The People's Republic of China

Customer: Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA), Beijing, The People's Republic of China 2010 - 2011

Under the United Nation's Energy Program (UNEP), the client has been appointed to provide training to gain a wider understanding of regulatory mechanisms. In this connection, the Consultant is entrusted with planning, preparing teaching materials and implementation of a workshop on pricing policies for wind power in Europe.

Long-term strategy for a climate-sound energy system of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

Customer: Ministerium für Umwelt Forsten und Verbraucherschutz Rheinland-Pfalz, Mainz, Germany, 2010 - 2011

The client contracted the Consultant to draw up a ‘Lead Scenario 2030’ for the State of Rhineland-Palatinate. On the basis of the State’s key energy and climate policy objectives and assuming a range of development scenarios, the study shows how, through a long-term strategy for energy conservation, raising energy efficiency, expanding renewable energies and increasing the share of on-premises power supply, a secure, affordable and low-carbon energy supply can be attained.
