Support in development of the Road Map for development of centralised heat supply in Azerbaijan till 2020 (AHEF 116.AZ)


The ITS "Ad Hoc Expert Facility" (AHEF) is one of the means for providing technical assistance to the heating companies of the INOGATE Partner Countries with guidance in choosing the correct direction the companies could follow up until 2020 resulting in a more efficient heating system accompanied by increased comfort levels for the citizens. The first mission is aimed to assist the distrcit heating company in Azerbaijan to develop the Road Map 2020 for more efficient distrcit heating system on the country.

District heating can play a significant role in a future energy system, by increasing use of renewable energy and enhancing efficiency of energy supply. Contributing to a better climate, it can be an important element of national GHG emissions reductions strategies and help in achieving energy savings and renewable energy goals. It requires a clear strategic vision and planning to develop the system in an economically and environmentally sustainable way.

With this assistance, the INOGATE will bridge the gap and cover the need for bringing the existing strategy up to date, and provide insight into the future of this sector to 2020 for a more efficient system and increased comfort levels for the country’s citizens.
