Webinar: State of Charge of PCM-based thermal batteries
The webinar is based on the HighEFF NEIC project SOCTES. Thermal storage is a key ingredient in the making of a sustainable society with increased energy efficiency and implementation of renewables. Knowing the state of charge of the storage is essential for efficient and flexible utilization of such devices.
Webinar: Thermochemical storage: Opportunities and challenges to enable decarbonisation
Thermochemical Energy Storage is a promising technology with great potential to enable decarbonization. It has higher energy storage capacity than other alternatives such as sensible or latent heat storage systems, but still has some research gaps to be addressed before its commercialization.
Webinar: Launch event for white paper on Thermal Energy Storage
The "ordinary" webinar the coming week will be cancelled, but as a replacement we would like to recommend the web based launch event for the White paper "Industrial Thermal Energy Storage – Supporting the transition to decarbonise industry". This is arranged by the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) and their Joint Programme Energy Efficiency in Industrial Processes (JP EEIP).
Webinar - KSP project: LEAN-Low Energy Anodes for Sustainable Electrowinning
In the LEAn project NTNU and SINTEF collaborate with Glencore Nikkelverk (copper, nickel, and cobalt), Boliden Odda (zinc) and Permascand (catalysts) to reduce the energy consumption by developing catalytic layers relying on readily available and abundant elements. Catalysts that reduce the energy consumption by as much as 15 percent are currently available in the new copper electrolysis plant at Glencore Nikkelverk. However, these rely on scarce and expensive elements which severely limit their use.
Webinar: New White Paper release: Industrial Thermal Energy Storage - Supporting the transition to decarbonise industry
A group of research experts on Thermal Energy Storage (TES) was assembled by the Energy Efficiency section of EERA (European Energy Research Alliance) to write a White Paper focusing on how Thermal Energy Storage can support the transition to decarbonise industry.
HighEFF Workshop – Competitive surplus heat recovery – How to get from knowledge building to practical and attractive demonstrators
We hereby invite you to the HighEFF WP3.1 and WP4.2 workshop " Competitive surplus heat recovery – how to get from knowledge building to practical and attractive demonstrators ".
Webinar: Optimal operation and control of thermal energy systems
This webinar gives an overview on the thesis with the title "Optimal operation and control of thermal energy systems". The work deals with a wide range of subjects from operation and control of steam cycles to systematically derived feedforward control applied to heat exchangers or steam networks and to inventory control problems such as thermal energy storage.
Webinar: Energy Efficiency Measures in Fish Meal Processing
In this webinar, August Brækken will outline the results from an evaluation of the potential for increased energy efficiency in fish meal processing plants through the use of direct heat exchange and high temperature heat pumps. This enables utilisation of waste heat from the drying processes and a reduction in the use of fossil fuels.
Webinar: Using low temperature surplus heat – the concept of an "Agricluster"
The Norwegian industry is emitting a significant amount of the used energy as heat to the environment. Unfortunately, most of the heat has a low temperature resulting in problems in utilizing said heat. In this presentation, we propose using said low temperature surplus heat in an integrated fashion in the food production sector.
Webinar: From factory fume to fish feed
The Green platform project AlgScaleUP will secure the technological platform needed for scaling up the production of microalgae at Finnfjord AS ferrosilicon plant. Through utilizing emission gases and heat surplus in a circular loop, the ambition of AlgScaleUP is to achieve a sustainable production of microalgae that can be applied as salmon feed.
Webinar: IPCC Sixth Assessment Report: Mitigation of Climate Change
For this webinar, we have invited Professor Anders Hammer Strømman from NTNU to present the main findings and messages from the most recent IPCC report. Professor Strømman is currently serving as a lead author to the working group three of the sixth assessment report of the IPCC. On a daily basis he teaches graduate courses in Life Cycle Assessment and Environmental input-output analysis for the students of the Industrial Ecology and Energy & Environment study programs at NTNU.
Webinar: Managing multiple goals in university-industry collaboration
A key challenge in university-industry collaborations is the partners’ multiple and potentially conflicting goals. This multiplicity of goals can in worst case hamper the collaboration, because the establishment of goals often determines which actions are undertaken. Firms and university partners may disagree on the course of actions to achieve these various goals. Therefore, the collaborative partners need to find a way to manage these different and potentially conflicting goals. This presentation will focus on how multiple goals in research centers can be managed to ensure attainment of mutually beneficial outcomes for the partners involved, at various levels of the collaboration. The presentation is based on qualitative interviews with firm and university partners in FME centers, including FME HighEFF.
Webinar: The role of thermal energy storage in the decarbonization of process industry
Two thirds of industrial energy use is in the form of thermal energy, and most of this energy demand is still covered with fossil fuels. In order to mitigate the climate change, rapid decarbonization of industrial process heat production is required – and the fastest way for decarbonization is through electrification using high-temperature heat pumps or electric boilers. This presentation will explain the role of thermal energy storage in as a key enabler for decarbonization of process industry, and present relevant case studies and results from FME HighEFF.
Webinar: Seven ways of greener Aluminium
Weight savings provided by the light metal aluminum will help the world reach the 2050 target of zero net emissions of greenhouse gases. The demand is increasing, however emissions from production need to be drastically reduced. In this talk, Samuel Senanu will show us seven ways to greener production of this important material.
International Webinar on Practicality and Applicability of Natural Working Fluids
This webinar is designed to disseminate knowledge of eco-friendly CO2 technology infrastructure & business models for end-of-life for refrigerants, as proposed to Indian policy makers to support India’s domestic and international environmental friendly cooling priorities & lowering of HFC emissions.
2nd Conference on High Temperature Heat Pumps - HTHP
The reduction of climate gas emissions is a global challenge for todays and future generations in order to minimize the impact of global warming. In fact, the discussion is no longer IF there is an global warming effect rather than HOW MUCH global warming will occur.
