Energy management of Municipality of Velenje Peter Virtič Faculty of Energy Technology, University of Maribor Dresden, October 15th, 2012 Municipality of Velenje • 5th largest Slovenian city • 35.000 inhabitants • In 1959 Velenje became the City • City of Velenje has made tremendous efforts to revitalize ruined landscape because of coal exploitation and to turn that handicap into advantage. • Strong economy with major company "Gorenje“ (domestic appliances) and "Coal mine Velenje" are along with the youth of the city the main reasons for pleasant and healthy living conditions. Main heating system in the Municipality of Velenje • Private: 56,8 % use of energy • Industry: 30,2 % use of energy Shares of heating Municipality of Velenje Heat Total 438.000 MWh Heat equivalent of fuel oil 931 l heat oil/person a Share of heating (private): Wood 12,9 % Fuel oil District heating from the Coal Thermal Powerplant in the neighboring municipality of Šoštanj 7,9 % 74,0 % Other (liquified natural gas…) 5,2 % District heating system in Šaleška Valley Second largest district heating system in Slovenia: Velenje and Šoštanj, with suburban's: Podkraj, Pesje, Lokovica and Topolšica. CHARACHERSITICS: - 256 MW installed power, - 144 km od pipelines, Solving of energy problems Reducing the impact of Climate Changes: • Rational use of energy • Renewable energy sources • Energy management Energy management of Municipality of Velenje • • • 2004: Energy concept of the Municipality of Velenje; 2006: Establishing of the Energy Agency KSSENA; 2007 – 2011: - Operational plan for energy reconstruction of public lightening in the Municipality of Velenje; - Energy audits, analyses, energy bookkeeping, energy reports (consumption and costs), etc; - Action planed for RES and RUE; - Implementation of RES and RUE process. What is KSSENA? • Established in 2006 within the framework of Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) • Founders: Municipality of Velenje (MOV), Municipality of Celje (MOC), Municipality of Slovenj Gradec (MOSG) and Public utilities company (KPV) • Number of employees: 6 • Expert organisation specialized in the field of energetics, with the emphasis on RES and RUE, and project management. • Professional bridge between potential users (emphasis on the public sector) and suppliers of specialized energetic services and products. Energy Audits More than 100 energy audits in Velenje (KSSENA): - Energy supply and consumption analyses, - Processing of energy data, - Determination of optimal measures, - Preparation of RES and RUE action plan for each particular building. Energy bookkeeping Energy Act - All public buildings with over 500 m2 of netto heat surface MAIN FUNCTIONS: - managers recognize their energy consumption; - invoice management (advanced energy bookkeeping), - energy and financial data management, - analysis, - financial and energy planning, - energy and financial reports, - financial and energetic planning for energy efficient measures, - monitoring, - all buildings connected in one comprehensive energyinformational system. 35 buildings in Velenje CHP of Primary School Škale - Before Preliminary heating: Fuel oil (consumption over 20.000 l) Obsolete and outdated boiler Energy number : > 200kWh/m2 (in 2007) - Reconstruction of the heating system Implementation of cogeneration of heat and electric power system 2 units (5,5 kWe and 12,5 kWh) Other Reconstructions: Replacement of windows Replacement of the door Replacement of blinds Installed Power: 17,4 kWp Estimated annual electrical energy production: 17,4 MWh Estimated annual production in EUR: € 6,600 Selected contractor: BISOL, d.o.o.

The completion of works: December 2010 Free public transportation Lokalc Free public transport has a direct impact on the environmental burden through the exhaust and noise. We assume the potential saving of CO2 emissions of at least 169 tones of CO2 per month, at the annual level this means of 2034 tones of CO2 emissions.
