On November 13, 2020 the kick-off of the NEFI-Industrial Board (IB) took place online with representatives of the Austrian industry and energy sector. Eleven companies accepted the invitation to actively participate in the NEFI community.
At the virtual table, the strategic ambitions of the companies about decarbonization were presented and intersections with the NEFI innovation fields were identified. The workshop also revealed that the companies are already intensively engaged in this area and have already developed or designed strategies for decarbonization, energy efficiency and renewable energy supply.
But up to now, a platform for the mutual professional exchange between companies and research has been missing. The NEFI Industrial Board can now close this gap to jointly advance the issue of decarbonization and the transformation of the industrial energy system.
We would like to thank the following companies participating at the Kick-Off: AT&S AG, Energie AG Oberösterreich, Innio Jenbacher GmbH & Co OG, Mondi AG, MIBA AG, Ochsner Wärmepumpen GmbH, Siemens AG Österreich, STIWA AMS, Wienerberger AG, Primetals Technologies Austria GmbH, Verbund AG
The next NEFI-Industrial Board is scheduled for spring 2021.
