RES Project | Italy

CO2 Live-Ticker

This absorption chiller already has


kg CO2 saved since its commissioning in September 2020.


The RES Project in Italy is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy
as part of the Renewable Energy Solutions Programme of the German Energy Solutions Initiative.

German Energy Agency (dena)
dena is the centre of expertise for energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and intelligent energy systems. As Agency for Applied Energy Transition we help achieve energy and climate policy objectives by developing solutions and putting them into practice, both nationally and internationally. In order to do this, we bring partners from politics and business together, across sectors. dena’s shareholders are the Federal Republic of Germany and the KfW Group.

German Energy Solutions Initiative
The transfer of energy expertise, the promotion of foreign trade and the facilitation of international development cooperation are part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative, which is coordinated and financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The initiative offers networking and business opportunities in Germany and abroad, it showcases reference projects and facilitates capacity building.

Renewable Energy Solutions Programme (RES Programme)
With the RES Programme, the Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena) – the German Energy Agency – helps German renewable energy companies enter new markets. The installation of climate-friendly energy technology projects in attractive target markets is accompanied by comprehensive information dissemination, marketing and training programmes. These flagship projects, supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy within the German Energy Solutions Initiative, aim to show-case high-quality German renewable energy technology and help participating companies gain a foot-hold in new markets.

Deutsche Energie-Agentur GmbH (dena) coordinates and manages the Renewable Energy Solutions program 2020 (RES program) financed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).

On the basis of this established demonstration and reference system for renewable energies and energy efficiency technology, comprehensive measures of information transfer and public relations are implemented. The prerequisite was the provision and installation of an innovative demonstration system as a contribution from the project partner. The common goal of the parties is the functionality of the system for at least 10 years.

Project description

The combined CCHP or Trigeneration system of this pharmaceutical company DiPharma provides electricity, heat and cold at the location Mereto Di Tomba, Italy and consists of a combined heat and power unit, an ammonia-water absorption chiller and a recooling unit.

The system outputs are: CHP = 1,000 kW electrical and 1000 kW thermal output at +100°C Absorption chiller = 1000 kW heat input, approx. 500 kW cooling capacity at 0°C and 1500 kW recooling capacity at +30°C Recooling unit = 1500 kW cooling capacity at +30/+25°C.

Total CO2 savings per operating year is 1,500 t CO2 per operating year.
