WP2 - CLEANER FOSSIL FUEL OPET
WP-2 Foresight and Technologies for Cleaner Fossil Fuels
Region covered - EU, Newly Associated Countries, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Israel.
Technology covered - Fossil Fuels
To recollect the information contained in foresight studies realised in ten last years that had topics related with cleaner fossil fuels, to detect common issues and analyse the different points of view about developments expected.
To identify what technologies can have more probabilities to play an important impact on industry, economy, society and its role in an energy sustainable future.
To deliver a report on Overview of Foresight studies carried out in Georgia
Organize a workshop at South Caucasus regional level (Georgia).
Milestones and expected results
Recommendation coming out of this study can be used to influence the future thinking of the UE, improved collaboration between partners and creation of networks.
The objective now would be to establish some kind of order of priority for the selection of the most important technologies for cleaner fossil fuel, or those that should be the subject of collaboration projects of immediate interest. In short, the aim is to select from all the technologies of interest to Industry those that will require the most research work or dedicate effort to be considered in research programs.
Regional Workshop in the framework of international project
Cleaner Fossil Fuel OPET
"Foresight and Technologies for Cleaner Fossil Fuels"
Till now Europe has made big efforts in research, development and demonstration and now it has available Clean Fossil Technologies (CFT) ready for penetration in Third Countries, like China, India, Israel, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia Energy Market, for power production in an environmentally friendly way, and using domestic energy sources.
The workshop brought together key players in Fossil Fuel area in the South Caucasus countries, in order to present the information contained in foresight studies realized in ten last years to detect common issues and analyze the different points of view about developments expected.
Workshop key speakers were:
Sh.Zarandia, Georgian National Energy Regulatory Commission, EEC Georgia
Dr. Teimuraz Javakhishvili, Georgian Technical Univercity, EEC Georgia
Dr. T.Mikiashvili, Dr. T.Jishkariani, Georgian Technical
Dr. Vahan Sargsyan , Armenia;
Mrs. R. Sadykh-Zade, ESMC Azerbaijan, coordinator of CFF
Dr. Professor, A.Beroshvili, Georgian Technical
Dr. Professor, A.Mikeladze, Georgian Technical University.
Major themes presented and discussed were:
Georgian energy sector development prospects with the consideration of the both optimistic and pessimistic scenarios as well as forecasted parameters for energy production and supply;
Development prospects for Cleaner Fossil Fuel technologies in Georgia;
Modern Clean coal technologies application in energy sector;
Foresight studies related to the realization of Cleaner Fossil Fuel technologies in Armenia;
Foresight studies related to the realization of Cleaner Fossil Fuel technologies in Azerbaijan
Compressed natural gas technologies and application prospects;
Prospects for the introduction of coal underground gasification technologies in Georgia.
