Topic Sheet: Consequences for Excess Heat Levels of Future Changes in Industrial Energy Systems

Topic sheet no 17, October 2022 (click link for download)

In Subtask 2 of Annex XV –  Industrial Excess Heat Recovery Task 3, future changes in industrial energy systems that could possibly influence the amount of available excess heat and its temperature levels were investigated. Examples of such changes are radical energy efficiency measures, technology changes, integrated biorefineries, electrification (based on renewable electricity), CCS/CCU/ BECCS, renewable heat sources, and industrial heat storage systems.

This fact sheet is based on the final report from Annex XV –  Industrial Excess Heat Recovery Task 3. Read the full report.
