BELGRADE - The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is working on a feasibility study for a solar thermal project in Pancevo, northern Serbia, that includes the construction of 35,000 sq m of solar collectors and 150,000 cubic m of underground seasonal storage, says EBRD Western Balkans director Zsuzsanna Hargitai.

"That technology enables the use of solar thermal energy both during the summer, when it is the most plentiful, and during the winter, when the surplus from the summer, stored at a seasonal storage facility, is used," she said on Thursday at a conference on renewables in long-distance heating systems, held within the framework of the 50th International HVAC&R Congress in Belgrade.

Similar solutions for Bor (eastern Serbia) and Novi Sad (northern Serbia) are already under preparation, while Valjevo and Sabac (western Serbia) have expressed interest in investments related to heat pumps using waste heat from waste water treatment plants, she said.

"We hope Belgrade, too, will soon confirm its interest - we are working on that," she said.
