Excess heat from energy-intensive industries is often suitable for use in district heating systems but is usually unutilized. A detailed overview of the potentials available in the EU is now provided by a database of the sEEnergies project. In Germany, 29 petajoules of excess heat from industrial sites could be used, which corresponds to the demand of more than half a million households. The information is available as maps and downloadable datasets.
The 17th and 18th of February 2016, the FORECAST / eLOAD team was represented by two colleagues at the e-world in Essen, Germany
The e-world was used to discuss with various experts in energy policy and energy economics the potentials of the model platform FORECAST / eLOAD and to get in contact with potential clients, interested in our services. Additionally, the ongoing developments and trends in the energy industry were taken up and brought back to the consortium to discuss and potentially incorporate new ideas in our business model. We are looking forward to meet you next year at the e-world in Essen!
