Online Only: Renewable Energy Options for Industrial Process Heat

Due to increasing community and government concern over Coronavirus, Engineers Australia has decided to temporarily suspend all face-to-face events. This includes events which meet our previously imposed attendee limits. We will continue to offer members access to our online events and services such as EAXchange. We are also working hard to deliver more for our members in this area over coming months.

 

Webinar will start at 6pm 

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has released ‘Renewable Energy Options for Industrial Process Heat’, produced by ITP Thermal in conjunction with Pitt&Sherry, the Institute for Sustainable Futures and Beyond Zero Emissions, in November 2019. The report outlines opportunities for industrial users to switch to renewable energy alternatives to provide process heat. It shows that shifting to renewable energy to generate process heat is possible for industrial sites over the short, medium and long-term using numerous technologies and approaches. This includes bioenergy, geothermal, electrification, hydrogen and solar thermal, together with process redesign, combining heat and power and co-locating greenfield developments with renewable resources.
