Joint Strategic Workshop on CHP and DHC Technologies

Paris: 27 May 2014 - 28 May 2014

Participation is by invitation only.

This workshop is a joint event including both the IEA CHP/DHC Collaborative and the Clean Energy Ministerial CHP/DHC Working Group, aimed at discussing the programme of work for Phase IV (2015-2016). The two organisations have worked closely together since the re-launch of the IEA CHP/DHC Collaborative in 2013.

The IEA CHP/DHC Collaborative was initiated in 2007 with the goal of advancing international data quality, analysis, and awareness about the importance of CHP and DHC as a sustainable energy strategy. The Clean Energy Ministerial CHP/DHC Working Group was created in 2010 as part of Global Superior Energy Performance Partnership, with the mission of increasing awareness about the vast potential of CHP and efficient DHC to help reducing fuel consumption and GHG emissions, increasing the use of renewable resources for heat and power production, reducing dependence on imported energy and increasing economic competitiveness and employment.

The meeting on 27-28 May 2014 will bring together collaborators to present the results from Phase III and discuss the programme of work for Phase IV through roundtable discussion where all attendants can share experiences and views on strategic areas of analysis that focus on CHP and DHC as flexibility enablers and the benefits of integrating these technologies in the Smart City concept. The participants agree to work on a work plan for the next two years, and assign roles and responsibilities for implementation.
