Industrial energy efficiency is the theme of multisector workshop and technical visit in Évora - date to be announced

Update | 23/09/2019
The event has been postponed, and a new date will be announced soon.

On September 27th, Évora will receive two initiatives dedicated to the theme of energy efficiency in industrial thermal processes. A multisector workshop and a technical visit to an industrial facility, both carried out under the EcoTermIP project, which aims to transfer scientific and technological knowledge to improve the energy conditions of the industry. Participation is free upon registration HERE.

The multisector workshop will be held at the Parque do Alentejo de Ciência e Tecnologia (PACT), starting at 9:30 am. Here the results of the EcoTermIP project will be presented, namely the energy diagnosis of the sectors of the national dairy industry and meat processing. The event, attended by INEGI’s experts in renewable energies and energy efficiency, also includes a moment of debate and dialogue between participants.

The visit to KEMET Electronics Portugal will take place in the afternoon, where the prototype of an innovative holistic system of generation, latent storage and direct heat supply to industrial processes is housed, through the integration of concentrated solar thermal technologies. This visit is part of the EcoTermIP project roadshow initiative, which is in line with its purpose of divulging good practices and new technologies for the eco-efficiency of production processes, and whose next dates will be announced soon.

Ana Magalhães, responsible for the project at INEGI, explains that both initiatives aim to minimize "a set of critical factors and identified market failures in the industry, namely the lack of knowledge and adequate information regarding the benefits that will come from the integration of technologies and methods that use renewable energy sources for thermal energy supply and waste heat recovery ".
