IETS Task 19 Workshop: Electrification of Industry

by Oxana Schmidt



Redoutensäle, Promenade 39, 4020 Linz, Austria


IEA IETS Annex 19 & NEFI


The participation is free of charge.

The industrial sector aims to make use of green electricity as a source for energy and feedstock production towards reducing climate impacts. Electrifying industry implies important changes to processes and also influences the entire energy supply chain. This workshop aims to give an overview about the broad topic of industrial electrification, its importance in the decarbonization innovation system, and its international context: technologies for direct and indirect electrification, country-specific perspectives from the IEA IETS Task 19 participants, energy resource demand from industries, demand for system and infrastructure services.

Join us and our experts as we discuss this important topic!
