EU Energy and Climate Package Alternative Fuels Kyoto Protocol
Background Information EU Energy and Climate Package In March 2007 the EU’s leaders endorsed an integrated approach to climate and energy policy that aims to combat climate change and increase the EU’s energy security while strengthening its competitiveness. They committed Europe to transforming itself into a highly energy-efficient, low carbon economy.  To kick-start this process, the EU Heads of State and Government [...]
Background Information Alternative Fuels Biofuel is a type of fuel which is in some way derived from biomass. The term covers solid biomass, liquid fuels and various biogases. Biofuels are gaining increased public and scientific attention, driven by factors such as oil price spikes, the need for increased energy security, concern over greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels, and [...]
Background Information Kyoto Protocol The Kyoto protocol is an international agreement linked to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The mayor distinction between Protocol and Convention is that while the Convention encourages industrialized countries to stabilize GHG emissions, the Protocol commits them to do so. Recognizing that developed countries are principally responsible for the current high levels [...]

Seminar on energy and climate; the role of stakeholders. April 12th 2012

The closing seminar for the project was held on April 12th 2012. This seminar aimed to involve and inform a broad range of stakeholders in Serbian administration, civil society, education and business on the future challenges and opportunities resulting from sustainable development of the energy sector in Serbia. In particular the links between energy and climate were addressed.

 The SuDES Project (Sustainable Development in the Energy Sector), financed by EU and managed by the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia, assists Serbia in the activities with the main goal to contribute to sustainable development in Serbia by enhancing capacities in the energy sector to efficiently use resources in compliance with the EU energy and climate acquis.

The main purpose of SuDES project is to build capacity in the energy sector which will enable:

  • implementation of sustainable energy policy,
  • implementation of the Kyoto Protocol and its possible successor,
  • increasing the quality of conventional fuels and creating preconditions for placing on the market fuels of biological origin,
  • raising the awareness by public campaigns and trainings in sustainable development .

The SuDES project addresses two key issues in the sustainable development of the energy sector in Serbia:

1 Kyoto Protocol and the Energy Sector

This project will support the Ministry for Infrastructure and Energy by improving GHG scenarios in the energy sector, by identifying mitigation measures, by investigation the impact of future obligations as well as any opportunities for participation in carbon financing mechanisms.

2 Quality of Liquid Fuels, Fuel Quality Monitoring System (FQMS) and Biofuels Labeling – Certification System

The project’s second part is focused on the monitoring of the quality of liquid fuels of mineral and biological origin and calculation of the reduction of the GHG emissions requested by the relevant Directives and Decisions of the EU.

The project is implemented by a consortium of Kommunalkredit Public Consulting KPC (Austria), EPTISA (Spain) and the Austrian Environmental Agency UBA. The project is implemented in the period April 2011 to April 2012.

This site provides background information on both topics and information on the project.
