IEA-IETS Annex 15: Industrial Excess Heat Recover (Phase 2)
Problem formulation and initial situation
Progress in energy relevant technologies is of great importance to achieve the collective goals of secured energy supply, environmental protection and economic and social development. A participation in the IEA-IETS gives Austrian stakeholders the possibility to establish research cooperation on an international level, to conduct projects and to offer R&D services in the field of industrial energy-relevant technologies and systems. The participation allows access to valuable know-how and increases the visibility of Austrian research activities and players in an international environment.
Objectives and methods
The main objective is the integration of Austrian research institutions into the international network, their participation within a platform for information exchange and the initiation of international projects in the field of excess heat usage in industrial processes. This will push the development of new cooperations and partnerships in industry and research, will unify and help strengthen the transfer of knowledge as well as the development of technological competences.
The results from the international cooperation within IEA IETS Annex 15 will be implemented in ongoing national research and development projects. Furthermore the obtained know how will be spread nationally through workshops, presentations and publications. On an international level, the industrial sector in Europe is strengthened by the tight cooperation and the transfer of knowledge.
In the ongoing project additional topics will be elaborated in this follow up project:
- Development and testing of pinch-methodology for the evaluation of industrial waste heat potentials
- Pinch-Analysis and documentation for case studies shall be carried out
- Identification and analysis of training needs in Austrian industrial companies
- Derivation of recommendations for training and further education
