From 19 to 21 April, the Serbian District Heating Association, TOPS and DBDH co-arranged the 6th biannual meeting with District Heating on top of the agenda.

This year the event took place in the mountains of Zlatibor and gathered the attendance of many representatives from the Serbian district heating sector, managers of Serbian heating plants, leaders and decision makers in the Serbian municipalities.

The theme of the District Heating Days was “Public Private Partnerships and Renewable energy vs. classic organic fuels, and the subject was coverered by former chairman of DBDH, Mr. Lars Gullev, CEO of VEKS. Mr. Gullev presented a very interesting showcase involving the partnership of VEKS and the private company, CP Kelco, one of the world’s largest producers of pectin based on citrus peels.

This year UN Environment participated also in the biannual meeting through District Energy in Cities Initiative, in which Belgrade is one of the six pilot cities globally. The Initiative will support delivery of an Action Plan to modernize the district heating network including network rehabilitation, connection of renewables and waste heat. Experience from Belgrade can be transferred to other cities in Serbia.

DBDH is an active partner in this project. UNEP was represented by Celia Martinez, giving an overview of the Initiative, as well as Senior Energy Advisor Romanas Savickas, who presented international best practices on energy mapping.

The presentations were followed by focusing on energy mapping in Belgrade, presented by Bojan Bogdanovic, Deputy director of Belgradska Elektrane.
