  • Germany : Germany to Prioritise CHP As Dsseldorf Heating Plant Commissioned
    May 19, 2015
    The German government is set to take a renewed interest in the potential of combined heat and power technology as a result of compromise on its plans to introduce a new levy on coal-fired power plants. A government document, revealed to Reuters, shows a softening in approach to forcing harsher emission targets on ageing plant looks lilely to benefit the CHP sector.

    The economy ministry, led by Sigmar Gabriel (pictured) now plans to require coal-fired power plant operators to cut their emissions by 16 million tonnes by 2020, compared with a previous target of at least 22 million tonnes. Although not yet approved, government sources told the news agency that now plans to achieve the remaining six million tonnes of CO2 emission cuts for the energy sector by promoting the use of more environmentally-friendly combined heat and power plants.

  • Lithuania : Capstone Chosen for Energy Project to Upgrade Top Pork Producer in Lithuania
    April 30, 2015
    Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for a C800 microturbine to upgrade a leading pork producer in Lithuania.

    Sarlin Oy Ab, Capstone's distributor for Finland, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in October 2015.

    Fueled by biogas produced on site, the C800 microturbine will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application along with an anaerobic digester, fuel compressor and heat exchanger. With energy efficiency levels approaching 80 percent, the innovative "green waste" energy system will convert organic solid waste into clean, renewable energy for the meat production facility. In addition, the exhaust from the microturbine will be captured to provide thermal heat at the highest efficiency possible.
