In fact, the project "Teaching in the River along Sentiero Valtellina" was possible by the work implementation and connection of the Cycling lane with the Valtellina bike ring, as provided in STEER local action within BEAST project. This allowed the exploitation of natural resources located in the geographical area, making the path attractive from an environmental point of view as a site of European interest.

Coopenergy project comes to an end in April 2016  and  a  new guide has been  published for local and regional public authorities to help them work closer in partnership on their sustainable energy planning.

The guide is a culmination of  Coopenergy project work over the past three years to test collaborative methods of working, using an approach called ‘Multi-Level Governance’ (MLG). MLG approach has been applied the to the field of sustainable energy.

" ["fulltext"]=> string(1873) "

The guide includes:

·       A step-by-step methodology on how local authorities and regional authorities can collaborate together on their energy work.

·       Hint and tips on setting up a collaborative energy process.

·       A selection of case studies on different energy topics (including renewable energy, joint-procurement, public lighting, local planning, the Covenant of Mayors) to showcase some of the best examples of partnership working that the project has tested. These come from a wider database of over 60 good practice case studies that have been collected from across Europe, available on the  website:http://www.coopenergy.eu/good-practice-resources

Zagreb, 11th April 2016

 Every seat was taken on Monday at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Zagreb on the first from a series of lectures on the Croatian Energy Transition. There was exceptional interest from experts, students, and reporters, which confirmed the assumption under which this initiative was launched. This is a unique place for expert discussion on energy topics in Croatia, the direction of development and the importance of the present moment for our society. The first roundtable gathered more than 90 people which only shows the need for discussion and the exchange of ideas and opinions.

 The Convention of the Highlands and Islands was attended by around 50 representatives of Scottish local authorities, public bodies and economic agencies. Representatives of the Scottish Government included Energy Minister Fergus Ewing and Deputy First Minister John Swinney. 

 John Swinney, Depute First Minister of the Scottish Parliament, commended the Comhairle for their progress with a Local Energy Economy and highlighted the BEAST supported local energy company as an exemplar for all other Local Authorities in Scotland.

In an article in the newspaper ÖSK NEWS No. 1 2016, the Energy and climate adviser in Atvidaberg and Kinda Municipality, Joakim Svensson (member of the group for electric cars and the charging infrastructure administered by BEAST) writes about how the development  of electric vehicles and charging stations look like in the region of Östergötland. - It is encouraging to see that it is very much going on thanks in Energy Agency Eastern Götaland and project BEAST who for more than a year has gathered interested municipalities and other stakeholders in an electric car group to increase knowledge and share experiences of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure. Some of the results is that we have received our first charging station in Atvidaberg and we'll put up the first in Kinda Municipality thanks to the project.

BEAST Croatia Partner Shares Experience on Japanese-Croatian Workshop About Geothermal Energy 28.01.2016

On January 12, 2016, at the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture has held a Croatian-Japanese workshop on Geothermal Energy. The workshop took place in Faculty Council Hall and gathered interested parties from this field in Croatia. Japan delegation was led by prof. dr. sc. Hikari Fujii from Akita University, one of the best researchers in this field. After the workshop, there was organized study visit to the new test system of the ground source heat pump at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture which was financed through IPA Geothermal Mapping project, Research and promotion of the use of shallow geothermal potential in Croatia.

The workshop was opened by a welcoming speech from the prof. dr. sc. Zvonimir Guzović, Dean of the Faculty. He also held first presentation “Geothermal potential in Croatia and possibilities of electricity generation” where he pointed out that there is potential for generating electricity from medium temperature sources (100-200°C) by using the ORC or Kalina cycle. Electric power of geothermal energy potential of Croatia is estimated at 48 MW. Prof. dr. sc. Vladimir Soldo presented the result of IPA Geothermal Mapping project. The project was conducted in 4 phases, drilling of 8 boreholes and determination of soil properties, setting up fibre optic cables for measurement, determination of thermal soil properties with Distributed Thermal Response Test (DTRT), Thermal Response test (TRT) and direct method and installation of heat pumps with the commissioning of the system. Partner on the project was Croatian Geological Survey whose dr. sc.  Staša Borović presented their role in the project. They determined the soil properties for ground source heat pumps (GSHP) in Dinaridic and Pannonian basin in Croatia, which showed that rocks and sediments in Croatia are suitable for GSHP. The last presentation in the first part was given by Ph.D. student Luka Boban. He presented results of usage of fibre optic cables for measurement of underground soil heat transfer and distribution of thermal properties. With these measurements ground source heat pump systems can be more reliably designed.

The second block of presentations was opened by prof. dr. sc. Hikari Fujii with two topics. Firstly, he presented his method for TRT by using of optical fibre thermometer. This method is tested in Tokyo area and can be used for optimization of the length of ground heat exchangers. The second topic was the field tests and numerical modelling of horizontal ground heat exchangers. These testings and modelling were carried out to investigate the performance of Slinky-coil horizontal ground heat exchangers (HGHE). It is interesting that on one of the testing sites Slinky-coil HGHE was placed in two layers, on depths of 1 and 2 meters, which showed that for the same ground area more energy could be extracted. The numerical model showed very good concurrence with the field test results. Dr. sc. Mayumi Yoshioka from National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology presented the results of “Evaluation of installation potential for aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) system”. She developed an approach for evaluating the suitability of the certain area for ATES system by combining the geological information and results of groundwater simulation. This approach was tested on the case of Yamagata basin in Japan and the suitability distribution of ATES system was computed. The last presentation was given by Masahiko Katsuragi for Japan Groundwater Development Company. He presented the development of snow melting system which uses ground source heat pumps. This system is used for snow melting on roads, parking lots, pedestrian walks, highways, heliports, etc. The event was concluded by a study visit to the new test system of the ground source heat pump at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture. The system has 12 kW of heating and cooling potential and every component on the system is monitored and displayed so that educational activities can be easily conducted.
