NEFI Szenario Workshop
Note: Due to the current general situation, the workshop will take place in a different form. Industrial partners will be invited to online discussions. If you are also interested in participating, please do not hesitate to email us to firstname.lastname@example.org
The flagship region NEFI – New Energy for Industry, funded by the Climate and Energy Fund, is a key project for the decarbonization of the manufacturing and energy-intensive industry in Austria. NEFI has set itself the goal of significantly reducing the CO2 emissions of domestic industry, using up to 100% renewable energies and increasing competitiveness at the same time.
In the context of ten currently funded projects, key technologies for the decarbonization of the industrial energy system are being developed, demonstrated and brought to market maturity. More than 100 manufacturing companies, technology providers, energy companies, service providers, research partners and public institutions from different industries are involved in solving specific problems.
NEFI also develops scenarios for the decarbonization of Austrian industry. The technology-based scenarios subsequently serve to model and simulate the development paths up to 2050 when the industrial energy system is transformed. The focus here is on the development of final energy requirements, emissions, and energy infrastructures.
The aim of the workshop is to evaluate the potential of future technologies together with representatives of industry and to discuss their integration in scenarios.
