Project description: The district heating system in town Subotica is operated by the public enterprise JKP Suboticka Toplana and is based on natural gas (primary fuel) and heavy oil (as back-up fuel). At the same time, Subotica is located in an agricultural area, where large quantities of agricultural waste are available, which may be used as biomass fuel. KfW has already financed a pre-feasibility study, in which a CHP plant with a nominal electrical power output of 5 MW[el] and 15 MW[th] using straw as primary biomass fuel was analysed. After demonstrated the general technical and financial feasibility of the proposed concept, KfW has decided to finance preparation of feasibility study which need to address many issues in more detail. The project was included in the protocol of the negotiations between the Federal Republic of Germany and the Republic of Serbia on economic cooperation in 2010. JKP Suboticka Toplana, the project-executing agency (PEA) has decided to pursue a two-step approach. First, to prepare a feasibility study sufficient to obtain a) the Energy Permit b) the Location Permit and c) the Environmental Permit. It should serve as a basis for decision about spatial, technical, financial, market and economic viability of the investment, i.e. a bankable feasibility study. In a second step the Preliminary Design should be prepared by the PEA in accordance with Serbian laws and regulations. SEEC experts covered the following processes:
