NEFI Technology Talk: Economically viable flexibilities in industry - Low Hanging Fruits?

by Oxana Schmidt

The path to a climate-neutral industry opens up great opportunities. One of these opportunities is the portfolio management of flexibilities in the context of an energy market that is becoming increasingly difficult to control and price-volatile. Flexibility options on the energy supply or demand side, such as buffers for thermal energy or material flows, storage systems or flexible deployment planning, can be instruments for balancing out volatility. We would therefore like to address the question of whether flexibility options can be used economically in industrial processes and thus also contribute to stabilizing the energy supply.

NEFI Technology Talk: Industrial Waste Heat Utilization with High Temperature Heat Pumps

by Oxana Schmidt

Heat pumps are a key technology for decarbonising the industrial sector. High-temperature heat pumps play an important role for industry, as there is a high demand for thermal energy at temperatures above 100°C. Some products are already available on the market, and efforts are underway to implement them.

This NEFI Technology Talk provides insights into high-temperature heat pumps, including a market overview of available products and concrete application examples. The presentation is carried out in collaboration with the IEA HPT Annex 58.
