The Catalogue of Best Practice Examples
The Catalogue of Best Practice Examples is divided into three categories according to the type of energy efficiency measures or of efficient use of energy resources: .
A. RES projects generating primarily electricity
A1 (01) small hydroelectric power plant
A2 (02) windelectric power plant
A3 (03) photovoltaic power plant
A4 (04) agriculture biogas power plant
A5 (05) landfill biogas power plant
A6 (06) other methods of generating energy from biomass
B. RES projects generating primarily heat
C. Energy efficiency projects
C1 (10) heat pump
C2 (11) energy efficiency measures for heating (low-cost)
C3 (12) energy efficiency measures for heating (high-cost)
C4 (13) modernization of street lighting
C5 (14) fuel savings
C6 (15) energy efficiency measures leading to electricity savings
Any projects that are part of the Catalogue of Best Practice Examples are comply with the following acceptability criteria:
- The project was implemented in the territory of the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and Slovenia in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
- The object of the assessed project is currently in active operation/use.
- Basic technical and economic parameters of the assessed project are available.
- An example of good practice was judged by experts as a quality, meeting all the conditions so that it can be understood as a true example of good practice.
Content of the Catalogue
Sheets The size of each catalogue sheet of measures is 1 to 2 pages of A4 format and contains Basic Information and Project Characteristics.
A brief description of the relevant project containing basic local and time data on the commissioning of the installation or on resumption of its operation after reconstruction is listed here.
Identification and Basic Data
Identification data includes information about the investor and operator and contact information, address, GPS location, etc.
The project characteristic contains key technical and economic figures of the project. The data presented in this part of the catalogue is not only allowed mutual comparison of the same types of projects, but also the comparison of different solutions (for example heating systems).
The technical data includes basic technical parameters of the project, such as the installed electrical/heat capacity, energy generation, efficiency etc. These parameters are nominal, i.e. are taken from the data sheet or project documentation of the system. The actual values achieved in the monitored time period will be stated in the part Operating Data.
The economic data includes basic economic parameters of the project, such as the total capital expenditure, total annual operating costs, annual revenues, period of return of investment, etc. Operating data are considered here as “anticipated” , i.e. according to the project documentation. The actual values achieved in the monitored time period will be stated in the Operational Data section.
As noted above, this part of the catalogue sheet may include selected technical and economic figures that are actually achieved in practice.
Comments (national specifications and additional information)
Comments may contain additional project information – comments on the calculation, limitations (if any), additional technical data, etc.
