The global innovation landscape provides an excellent basis for the development of novel solutions to achieve the targeted climate goals. With numerous research projects on the deployment of new sustainable technologies in full swing, we now want to take the next step: NEFI Technology Talks will bring together national and international efforts in the context of selected, industrial decarbonization topics, synthesize findings and results, and form synergies to leverage further developments and drive them forward.

In the NEFI Talk "Decarbonisation of heating and cooling supply with geothermal energy and industrial waste heat" on 14.10.2022 in Linz, possibilities are to be shown how heating and cooling networks can be decarbonised with the help of geothermal energy and industrial waste heat. In keynote speeches, not only the corresponding technologies will be presented, but also possible business models and holistic concepts based on successful examples.

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