IEA IETS Annex 15: Industrial Excess Heat Recover (Phase 3)
The international IEA IETS Annex 15 pursues a multi-disciplinary approach to the integrated use of industrial waste heat and aims to optimize energy efficiency in a global context. The focus is on the optimization and (further) development of energy- and cost-efficient technologies for industrial application, taking into account the industrial framework conditions.
Progress in energy-relevant technologies is of great importance for achieving the collective goals of energy security, environmental protection and economic and social developments. Participation in the IEA-IETS enabled Austrian stakeholders to establish international cooperation and to offer R&D services in the field of industrial energy-relevant technologies and systems. In addition, access to valuable know-how was created, which will be distributed to Austrians stakeholders, and increased visibility in the international environment was achieved.
The main objective of the participation in Annex 15 was to integrate Austrian research institutions into the international network and to participate in a platform for the exchange of information and the initiation of international projects in the field of waste heat utilization in industrial processes. In the international consortium, national knowledge on the following subtasks was collected and processed:
- Subtask 1: Combination of methods for excess heat identification and quantification
- Subtask 2: Consequences for excess heat levels of future changes in industrial energy systems
- Subtask 3: Operational aspects in industrial energy systems
- Subtask 4: Opportunity and risk assessment for excess heat projects
- Subtask 5: Compilation of innovative excess heat projects
New findings from international cooperation in the IEA IETS Annex 15 were integrated into ongoing national research activities.
