5th Member States’ Gas Forum: The Case for Gas in the Energy Union
Date: Tuesday 12. of April 2016

Natural gas is one of the main energy sources in today’s energy mix. The entire discussion on the Energy Union started because of a new threat over the gas supply from Russia to the European Union.

Also for solar thermal solutions, not being currently a 100% solution, the combination with gas is a common one and in some cases has been identified as a cost-optimal solution for the reduction of costs and emissions.

In this sense, the ESTIF Board decided that it was important to have a better...

Calculating costs of different RHC technologies
Date: Tuesday 12. of April 2016

In the FROnT (Fair Renewable Heating and Cooling Options and Trade) project a user-friendly energy cost calculation tool is being developed in order to promote transparency in energy prices.

Previously a model to define the levelised cost of heating and cooling, taking into consideration the specificities of different technologies, as well as environmental and end use variables was developed. The methodology for estimating costs is outlined in this report.

The online tool relying on the...
