Opis: The implementation of renewable sources for electricity production into the energy portfolio of European countries has been a priority in recent years, especially taking into account the current geo-political changes. Even though coal is the fuel of the past, its use cannot be put aside that easily; firstly, because of the high fluctuation of electricity production from renewable sources, and secondly because of the possible negative economic impact on the economy resulting from a change in electricity prices when exiting coal. Based on the Rankine process, the authors of this paper designed a solar tower installation with a heliostat field, which enables electricity production based on solar irradiation. This combination also foresees an additional installation for flue gas desulphurisation. This combination of three processes is named the ‘revitalisation model’ for thermal power plants (TPPs). Based on the computer model and energy market parameters, the authors tested the ‘revitalisation model’ for pessimistic and optimistic scenarios. In the scope of the paper, the authors analyse the performance of the proposed ‘revitalisation model’ for three different geographical locations – Berlin in Germany, Wuwei in China, and Hyderabad in India. The results of the analysis are described and shown graphically.

Interdisciplinary methodological approach to the process of brownfield revitalisation of traditional industrial areasLučka Lorber
, 2011, izvirni znanstveni članek
Opis: Traditional industrial regions in the South-East Europe (SEE) represent an underexplored economic value. Revitalisation is delayed and hindered because of legal, financial, environmental and image problems. This weakens competitive investment position for cities and for SEE as a European region. This paper aims at presenting interdisciplinary methodological approach used in a brownfield revitalisation research project. The research work methodology applies the endogenous approach ("bottom up") on a basis of newly defined land use category of brownfields by the local community. Geography science enjoys an advantage of complexity of understanding spatial issues. This enables geographers to coordinate and harmonize interests between the owners, stakeholders, legislation and human resources. In addition to geographical areas (economic, traffic, demographic, environmental and regional geography) directly involved in the project applicative research, this also includes collaboration of architects, lawyers and economists. The form of applicative research work presented is being developed within the international Revitalisation of Traditional Industrial Areas in South-East Europe (ReTInA) project. The project is funded in the context of the SEE European Transnational Cooperation Programme 2009/12, involving ten partners from seven countries. The main result of the project will be the new methodology and tools to boost brownfield revitalisation in the municipalities and in old industrial areas of SEE region.

New perspectives of the regional development of old industrial areasLučka Lorber
, 2010, objavljeni znanstveni prispevek na konferenci
Opis: The process of brownfield revitalisation still poses a challenge in the SEE area. It is delayed and hindered because of legal, financial, environmental and image problems. These areas of old industrial cities represent an underexplored economic value, are areas for investment and could be motors for job creation. In our paper we would like to present the main goals of the revitalisation process. The main long-term goal is to develop an internationally competitive business location that will be able to attract new businesses dealings in higher value added environmentally friendly production and knowledge based services, aiming thus at faster and stable economic development of the region.
