An economic comparison of different heat generation technologies has shown that the conversion to decentralised hot water generation with natural gas low-temperature boilers was more economical than refurbishment or replacement investment in the waste wood heating plant. In addition, a natural gas CHP plant was installed to cover the company’s own electricity requirements.
The municipality of Jetzendorf has had an energy use plan drawn up by eta Energieberatung. This systematically created an overall concept for the energetic development of the community. The possibilities of saving energy, increasing efficiency and the conversion to renewable energy sources can be coordinated by this systematic approach.
The municipality of Hohenwart has had an energy use plan drawn up by eta Energieberatung. This systematically created an overall concept for the energetic development of the community. The possibilities of saving energy, increasing efficiency and the conversion to renewable energy sources can be coordinated by this systematic approach.
At the power plant site, a waste incineration line was converted to biomass operation (wood combustion). The entire conception and planning of the biomass cogeneration plant was carried out by eta Energieberatung.
On behalf of the Stadtwerke Memmingen, the local heating network in the north industrial estate in Memmingen was evaluated according to technical and economic aspects with a view to a possible purchase. The investments of the heating network were estimated and the offer for sale was evaluated with regard to the appropriateness of the price.
The technical feasibility and economic efficiency of different variants of CHP (combined heat and power) and CHP (combined heat, power and cooling) were examined. An economic alternative is also a micro gas turbine for air preheating.
Erdgas Schwaben supplies the city of Dillingen with environmentally friendly and cost-effective bio-heat from a biomass ORC cogeneration plant. eta Energieberatung develops measures for the technical and operational optimisation of the biomass CHP plant with district heating network in Dillingen.
Through eta Energieberatung a sustainable concept for a secure procurement of fuel assortments was developed and a regional market overview was created. In addition, a profitability analysis and a sustainability assessment was carried out.
The waste heat of a local foundry was integrated into the existing heating network. The existing district heating network was extended to connect a school centre. In the course of this, extensive conversion and expansion measures were carried out on the existing hydraulic and control technology and a buffer storage tank was installed.
In Engelsberg, a biomass heating plant with a capacity of 1,700 kW and a district heating network with a route length of approx. 7,400 m and 180 heat transfer stations were built. Afterwards, the biomass heating plant and the district heating network were optimised during operation.
As part of a feasibility study for the implementation of a JI project in Bulgaria, a baseline study, a monitoring plan as well as a sink and emission reduction study were carried out. The subject of the project was the conversion of the heating supply to biomass. Biomass pilot projects were initiated in two selected municipalities.
On behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, a pre-feasibility study was carried out for the conversion of an industrial production site from heavy oil to biomass and the increase in energy efficiency through combined heat and power.
