NS-32 - Introduction of metering system and billing on the basis of measured consumption in district heating systems in Serbia


NAMA Seeking Support for Implementation

  • A Overview
    • A.1Party
      A.2Title of Mitigation Action
      A.3Description of mitigation action
      Almost all residential consumers connected to the district heating (DH) network in Serbia are paying their bill based on the floor size, instead of the actual amount of heat consumption. This billing system has prevented consumers from having energy saving mindset. The NAMA involves installation of devices that allow metering of heat consumption by each consumer, which is a necessary prerequisite for billing on the basis of actual heat consumption. Measures to be introduced include heat allocators with radio modem, thermostatic radiator valves as well as rehabilitation of 50% of existing substations in Serbia (approximately 12,500 substations) and installation of heat meters, automatic control, pumps with integrated frequency converters, plate heat exchangers, valves, etc. The NAMA will contribute to climate change mitigation through reducing the consumption of heat at residential sector, which is generated by fossil fuels.
