Energy efficient and low-carbon solutions for a secure, sustainable and climate variability reducing energy supply
Original Language Title: 
Energoefektīvi un oglekļa mazietilpīgi risinājumi drošai, ilgtspējīgai un klimata mainību mazinošai energoapgādei

Objectives: 

The aim of the program is to research technologically innovative, cost-effective solutions for the development of sustainable energy production and consumption, increase of energy efficiency and development of environmentally friendly renewable energy resources. In total, the program consisted of 6 projects:

  1. Innovative energy electronics technologies for increasing energy efficiency in the Latvian economy, future electricity supply networks and the use of renewable energy resources;
  2. Optimization of energy system development planning and energy production, trade and distribution;
  3. Sustainable climate policy and innovative, energy-efficient technological solutions;
  4. Innovative technologies for hydrogen and biofuel extraction, storage, quality control, quality assurance and use in Latvia;
  5. Impact assessment of energy and climate policy;
  6. Comprehensive studies on innovative technologies for the extraction and use of renewable energy sources and the potential for biogas production in the waste recycling sector.
Funding Source(s): 
Latvia State Research Programme
Key Results: 

The main results of the project include:

  • a strategy for the development of a sustainable transport sector in Latvia, proposals for the implementation of the Energy Efficiency Law to increase the energy efficiency of buildings have been provided;
  • a study on the improvement of biodiesel production methods through the development of new catalysts;
  • a study on the improvement of biodiesel production methods by developing glycerol oxidation processes with oxygen;
  • arylation of activated carbon with 4-sulfobenzenediazonium chloride gave a new heterogeneous catalyst for biodiesel synthesis, which shows high activity in esterification and unesterification reactions;
  • a study on the synthesis of hydrocarbons from rapeseed oil required for the production of diesel fuel;
  • the development of a simple but efficient technology for the conversion of various biomass materials into fermentable sugars and further into liquid biofuels, bioethanol.
