EEIP, Europe´s fastest growing platform for industrial energy efficiency, is organizing a European Congress in cooperation with DENEFF, the energy efficiency initiative of German industry. The Congress covered the business case for industrial waste heat and energy recovery. 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.
Speakers came from the European Institutions and German Parliament as well as from energy intensive industries, solution providers and investment funds. Particiants came from many sectors, from those working on industrial cogeneration, heat pumps, heat exchangers, energy management systems or looking into how industrial facility can save or better use energy.
The Congress, 'Energy Recovery in Industry: Opportunity for energy efficiency', was orgaised by EEIP (Energy Efficiency in Industrial Processes), Europe´s fastest growing platform for industrial energy efficiency, and DENEFF (German, industry led initiative for energy efficiency) and took place on 24-25 October in Berlin (Melia Hotel Berlin, Friedrichstrasse, close to German Bundestag). EEIP has grown since its launch at the EU Commission in April 2011 into the biggest industrial energy efficiency network in Europe with over 17,000 members and the EU Commission nomination for one of the best Sustainable Energy communication projects of 2012.
EEIP energy recovery work is supported by the European Commission throiugh 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?
