White paper front cover

One quarter of total final energy consumption in the European Union is consumed by industry. Within that quarter, over 80% is consumed by heating and cooling processes. The continued, wide-scale use of gas, oil, coal, and other fossil fuels for industrial thermal processes leads to an estimated greenhouse gas (GHG) emission of 513 Mt CO2 equivalent per year, 12% of total GHG emissions.

Thermal energy storage (TES) can assist in the decarbonisation of industrial heating and cooling, and  ncrease energy system flexibility and security. The full roll-out of industrial TES could enable a potential 1,793 TWh of fossil fuel replacement by renewable energy and/or surplus heat. So why aren’t more organisations implementing TES?

The Paper provides insights from industry experts on

  • The role TES can play in decarbonising process industries
  • Case studies featuring TES in use
  • Challenges and Barriers to the use of TES
  • TES in action, new technical solutions
  • Proposed actions to roll out adoption across the industry
