  • Energy demand simulation for East European countries

    The analysis and created statistical models of energy consumption tendencies in the European Union (EU25), including new countries in transition, are presented. The EU15 market economy countries and countries in transition are classified into six clusters by relative indicators of Gross Domestic Product (GDP/P) and energy demand (W/P) per capita. The specified statistical models of energy ...

  • European nuclear education network

    In most countries within the European Union that rely to a significant extent on nuclear power, neither undergraduate nor PhD education is producing a sufficient number of engineers and doctors to fill the needs of the industry. As a result of an EU-supported project, a new education organisation, European Nuclear Education Network (ENEN), has recently been established, with the aim to establish ...

  • Decision support system framework of the PRIMES energy model of the European Commission

    PRIMES is a large scale model of the energy systems of European Union member-states linked together through energy markets. The PRIMES software is based on a full-scale decision support system (DSS) framework, which is presented in the paper. The DSS framework of PRIMES intends to support the seamless integration of data management, model running and reporting. The system is based on a common ...

  • Energy risk management with carbon assets

    This article proposes a mean-variance optimisation and portfolio frontier analysis of energy risk management with carbon assets, introduced in January 2005 as part of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. In a stylised exercise, we compute returns, standard deviations and correlations for various asset classes from April 2005 to January 2009. Our central result features an expected return of 3% with a ...

  • `Sahara Power` needs pan-European grid operator

    A consortium of leading European – mostly German – companies plans to invest €400 billion in a megaproject to generate solar power in the Sahara desert. “Desertec”, as the project is called, could cover 15 percent of European electricity demand. The problem is, how do you transport this power to Paris and Berlin? ‘It will not work without a pan-European grid operator.’ The figures for the ...

  • The future of energy management through the eyes of Siemens

  • How to Manage risk in volatile energy markets

    In the last year wholesale power prices swung by around 45%, which is twice as volatile as the previous five years.  Those who fixed their electric bill for the next three years at the height of this market could  end up paying thousands of pounds more than others, who may have pursued a more calculated and less risky approach. Fixed vs. ...

  • Renewable energy and energy efficiency in Bulgaria

    The interest in renewable energy sources (RESs) utilisation and energy efficiency improvement programmes in Bulgaria reflects the changes in the field of energy policy worldwide and in Europe. Now energy management becomes a great problem of inner policy of Bulgarian government. In the last few years there has been a growing attention to the RESs applications. Bulgaria has one of Southern ...

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...

  • Spent nuclear fuel and the principle of national responsibility: national policies in a European context; the case of Sweden

    The principle of national responsibility is of essential importance for the international regulation of nuclear waste and spent nuclear fuel. The principle lays down the obligation of each state producing nuclear energy to take responsibility for the residual products that this production generates. It is a principle that can be, and has been, invoked on a national level to provide a legal basis ...

  • Energy efficiency policy in Slovenia

    Slovenia set up its own energy efficiency policy in the Strategy of Energy Use and Supply of Slovenia, adopted by the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia in early 1996. Energy efficiency policy in Slovenia is in harmony with the European Commission's policy concerning the promotion of energy efficiency. The new Energy Act, adopted in September 1999, defines energy efficiency as equally ...

  • Wind & solar energy and nature conservation

    Climate change and the degradation of ecosystems and biodiversity cannot be solved in isolation. Land and marine ecosystems play a crucial role in the climate system, capturing roughly half of carbon dioxide emissions generated by human activities (UNEP, 2009). Protecting biodiversity preserves ecosystem services that are important for regulating the climate and helping us to adapt to the impacts ...

  • Safety and security of energy infrastructures in Europe: the EC–DG JRC's energy risks monitor project

    After mapping of current European Union (EU) regulations on the management of accidental risks related to natural hazards and different industrial activities, this paper discusses insights from past European Commission (EC) initiatives on harmonisation of assessment and management of safety risks. Next, for the specific case of the energy sector, the on-going development of a methodology and ...

  • Contribution to preservation and management of nuclear knowledge on WWER reactor pressure vessels

    A new project focused on nuclear knowledge preservation is ongoing in the European Commission (EC)-Joint Research Centre Institute of Energy with an intention to collect all available information about the Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPV) of WWER-type reactors, as well as to analyse and summarise the most important items and issues. This activity is in line with the European Community FP6 projects ...

  • It’s time to invest in clean energy in Africa

    Private-sector investment in electricity is sitting on the sidelines in Africa. Here’s how we can change that. The math for Africa’s clean energy future is adding up. Solar lamps are spreading like fireflies across Ghana. A first-of-its-kind solar farm in Rwanda is providing electricity for 15,000 rural homes. Utility-scale solar and wind projects are being built in ...
