as a starting point basic facts are to be collected. At 5-10 participating labs, information is assembled on electrical usage, amounts of heat generated, temperatures, facility heating and cooling needs and systems, required temperatures, etc. The results form the basis of a report.
Energy recovery opportunities
State-of-the art methods for making use of heat, opportunities, costs and revenues are to be evaluated. A pan-European competition for the best ideas will be held. This theme is a good topic for a conference with labs and related industry, to connect the heat suppliers with interested buyers/users. The ideas will be put into a compendium for future contacts.
