Concerted Action Multigeneration Energy Systems with Locally Integrated Applications
CAMELIA aims at leading a general survey and analysis of the various possibilities of producing electricity together with other energy (heating, cooling) from waste, biomass and other RES in a view to apply it for buildings energy supply in an autonomous way so as to reduce drastically the CO2 emissions due to energy consumption from the building sector.
CAMELIA aims to get an inventory of the state of the art, explore various promising cost-effective systems and analyse future implementation taking into account :
Impact of innovative technologies (heat driven devices and and storage) to reduce CO2 emissions
People response to new systems (regarding habits, constraints ans costs)
Environmental impact (in particular overall GHG – greenhouse gas – emission decrease) versus techno-economic aspects
Energy storage and integration of electricity surplus to the network
CAMELIA will produce a Good Practice Guide which will be available not only through internet but will also be edited by an editor specialised in the edition of scientific and technical books. This Good Practice Guide will be sent freely to associations and collectivities (european, national and regional) to help them to implement rational policies in that field of rational use of energy and renewable energy for emissions abatement.
