Whenever possible quantitative information should be provided. Failing that, a qualitative description should be given. If quantitative information becomes available, it could be submitted using the update(s) (If the amount of quantative information is too large, the source could be indicated.)

N.B.: All information is ex-ante

Item

Please fill in

Describe environmental benefits in detail:

Decrease of CO2, SO2, NOx, dust and particulates

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of environmental benefits:

Yes,CO2 emission figures with and without this project

Describe social/cultural benefits in detail:

Cleaner environment; better skilled personnel

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of social benefits:

No

Describe economic benefits in detail:

Decrease of fuel costs, due to lower fuel consumption

Do quantitative data exist for evaluation of economic benefits:

Yes, fuel costs with and without this project

E) Calculation of the contribution of activities implemented jointly projects that bring about real, measurable and long-term environmental benefits related to the mitigation of climate change that would not have occurred in the absence of such activities

E.1) Estimated emissions without the activity (project baseline):

Description of the baseline or reference scenario, including methodologies applied:

As reference scenario the fuel consumption and associated emissions have been determined by modelling the operation of RENEL power and heat generating system for the assumption that the subject power plants will not be modified as part of this or other projects.

Special attention has been given to the hour-by-hour behaviour of the generating system, allowing physical constraints such as minimum operating levels, ramping capability and the relationship between the heat and the electricity production to be taken into account.

This has been ensured by the use of Sep's PowrSym3J chronological, probabilistic heat and power production simulation model. The results from the simulation reveal the production of each generating unit, and the associated fuel consumption and emissions of CO2, SO2, and NOx.

E.2) Estimated emissions without the activity:

Description of the scenario, including methodologies applied:

The simulation of the operation of RENEL power and heat generating system has been repeated, after modification of the relevant parameters of the candidate generating units. These modifications relate to an enhanced thermal efficiency of these units, as result of this project. Basic assumption is that the generation of the related units will remain unchanged, and that the decrease in fuel consumption and the associated emissions is due only to the higher efficiency of the units. This is a moderate assumption since, in reality, it may be expected that the units, due to a higher efficiency will produce slightly more electricity, to the detriment of other units with lower efficiency.
