The study draws the landscape of technical solutions already available and under development for the thermal energy storage and power-to-heat sectors. It assess the value of these technologies and their techno-economic potential for 6 case studies in applications and sectors deemed of interest: district heating, industrial waste heat recovery, combined heat and power, domestic hot water.
This study offers a vision of the definition of an urban microgrid, the value brought by a microgrid in different contexts based on real case studies, and the upcoming challenges that microgrid stakeholders will face (regulation, business models, technology).
In 2015, ENEA conducted an intermediate evaluation of the bigoas project EVE of the NGO VSF-B in Rwanda. It aimed at assessing its performances and impacts and provide recommendations for a scale-up phase. This work offers a precious feedback on domestic biogas to pursue the development of this clean cooking solution in developing countries.
In the coming years, improving the industrial competitiveness implies major investments, notably those that induce a significant reduction of energy consumption of manufacturing processes. Financing major investments in the industry, which cover the integration of technological innovations or which target incremental improvement of the energy performance seems to be one of the barriers to the
The study conducted for the IEA-RETD analyses mobility uses, technology paths and policy measures to be set up in order to develop renewable power-to-gas for the non-individual road transport sector.
Mini-grids will be one of the key solutions to supply electricity in rural Zambia. ENEA supported the NGO Practical Action to shift the emphasis on sustainable business models for mini-grids.
The study, co-financed by the Tuck Foundation and KIC InnoEnergy, draws a review of power-to-gas technologies (hydrogen and synthetic methane) and assesses their economic potential for energy markets (grid injection and mobility).
A study funded by ADEME and conducted by ENEA in partnership with lNRIA assessed the potential of algal French resources (micro- and macroalgae) for the production of advanced biofuels and molecules of interest (bioplastic, nutrients etc.) in 2030.
This study ordered by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME), aims at taking stock of the different technologies used for the chemical conversion of CO2 in order to have a better understanding of their development potential by 2030
ENEA offers an educational brochure produced on the Region Brittany’s initiative, which presents the main technologies for power and thermal energy generation.
Prospective study on the expected impacts of climate change and small-scale livestock farming, and reserve, by 2020, in sub-Saharan Africa
ENEA publishes, in partnership with VSF Belgium, a prospective study on the impacts of climate change on small scale livestock farming, and reversely, in sub-Saharan countries, by 2020.
