Conference: Energy Recovery in Industry - Best Practice to Implementation

00:00 CEST
| Duisburg, Landschaftspark - Gebläsehalle, Germany

EEIP, Europe´s fastest growing platform for industrial energy efficiency, is organizing a European conference on industrial waste heat and energy recovery - at the heart of the German energy intensive manufacturing: Duisburg.

The conference covers the barriers and opportunities for more widespread use of industrial energy.
Starting from the challenges such as regulation and financing and moving to the solutions, from technology & services to revenue streams and specials like grid access, the event builds a business case for industrial waste heat and energy recovery

As this is an invitation only conference, please contact EEIP Business Director Juergen Ritzek for registration (

Speakers came from the European Institutions and from energy intensive industries, solution providers and investment funds.

Particiants are energy managers and industrial plant managers from many sectors, as well as those working on industrial cogeneration, heat pumps, heat exchangers, energy management systems or advising how industrial facility can save or better use energy.

EEIP energy recovery work is supported by the European Commission through a grant dedicated to support energy intensive industries covered under the 3rd ETS phase. Waste Heat Recovery is assumed to play a major role to lower costs, reduce allowance obligations and enhance competitiveness. So what are the main challenges and what are solutions to allow a broader and faster adoption of waste heat recovery solutions?
