The Industrial Efficiency Conference, organised by the he eceee (European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy), is the most important event on industrial energy efficiency in Europe. In 2018, it is taking place in Berlin on 11 to 13 June 2018. Topics will be, amongst others, the deep decarbonisation of industry with its strategy and policy implications. The Wuppertal Institute, the Lund University, the Upper Austria Energy Agency and the Swedish Energy Agency are organising a side event on this topic on 12 June from 16.30 to 18.30. The session convenes policy, research and industry representatives to discuss concepts and technologies as well as innovation strategies and policy approaches for initiating long-term changes along the value chain with a focus on the energy intensive processing industries. It aims to develop this agenda with the eceee community, as a part of eceee's ambition to lead the low carbon transition and tap into the expertise of eceee participants on industrial strategies and policy.
On the conference itself, three members of the Wuppertal Institute will give further insight into the work of the institute by presenting their papers. Clemens Schneider, Research Fellow at the Division Future Energy and Mobility Structures, will be presenting "Concepts and pathways towards a carbon- neutral heavy industry in the German federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia". Dr. Sascha Samadi, Research Fellow in the same Division, will talk about "Deep decarbonisation pathways for the industrial cluster of the Port of Rotterdam", while Dietmar Schüwer, Project Co-ordinator in the same Division, gives insight into "Electrification of industrial process heat: long-term applications, potentials and impacts".
