CEV CONSORTIUM
CEV is a consortium that in present state has 1,001 associated bodies which came together to break down all the costs of energy, to have free access to important services that simplify the management and to build together a new culture about sustainable energy inside and outside the consortium itself.

Biogas plant in Lana
In South Tyrol there are about 30 biogas plants which turn manure and agro-waste into energy but the Lana plant is the only one that produces energy from the wet fraction of urban waste collected from 34 neighbouring municipalities. The potential of this technology seems to be not fully exploited and should be further supported. Its inclusion in the CNA might be therefore of relevance in promoting this technical solution.

WIND ENERGY PLANT IN BADIA CALAVENA
Following up the installation of the wind energy plant in the municipal territory were installed two biomass power stations (two other are already being installed with the relating implementation of the short “wood-energy” chain), a photovoltaic system and a solar system. In addition to that, in order to raise the awareness both of inhabitants and visitors, the Municipality supported the creation of the "Peper Park".

DISTRICT HEATING PLANT OF DOBBIACO – SAN CANDIDO
Since the early '90s, Dobbiaco and San Candido were looking for a source of green electricity. Considering that they are among the most famous South Tyrolean resorts, both require a significant amount of thermal energy for heating purposes. A district heating system fueled by wood chips turned out to be just one of the locally viable technological solutions best suited to the needs of environmental sustainability.

BRUNICO 100% RENEWABLE CITY
Brunico is a small town with over 15,000 inhabitants located in the region of Val Pusteria in South Tyrol. The principal scope of this CNA was to create a district heating system enabling the community to produce more electricity and heat than required by the residents. Specifically, the town's energy is a combination of five different technologies based on renewable energies (solar thermal, solar photovolatic, biomass, biogas and mini hydropower).

VAL VENOSTA RAILWAY REQUALIFICATION (MERANO-MALLES)
The Venosta valley has a long East-West extension (very similar to the ALPSTAR case-study, Valtellina), no motorways but only an old, narrow national road. This road crosses the small villages and the main centers located in the valley and "absorbs" many different traffic streams (long distance, short distance, light and heavy vehicles, cars and buses). The requalification of the old railway was the right answer.

EXPERIMENTATION OF ELECTRIC BICYCLES IN THE NATURAL REGIONAL PARK OF QUEYRAS
Electrical bicycles are put at disposal for tourits and inhabitants during the summer season. On the whole territory 36 bicycles can be borrowed free of charge in tourism residences, hotels, campings. They allow the tourists to visit the territory with a low CO2 content means of transportation despite the slopes of the mountainous area.

PEATLAND RESTORATION IN THE REGION OF THE ALPS IN BAVARIA
The focus of this measure is to renaturate peatlands. Today 90-95 % of the Bavarian peatlands are strongly degraded, only 1 % is in a natural state. By mineralisation and sagging of the peatlands around 20 t CO2 are degassed per hectar and year. This CO2 output is stopped by re-waterlogging measures. New peatlands are growing with all positive effects on flora and fauna. These intact peatlands help to save CO2 emissions and to store water which is especially important during flood events.
