Flexibilisation of Industries Enables Sustainable Energy Systems

  • Project no.150507
  • Duration 02/2015 - 11/2015

A sustainable energy system will be characterised by high shares of fluctuating renewable electricity generation. Due to the resulting volatile generation structure a multitude of balancing options will be necessary. The flexibilisation of industrial processes is one promising solution. With a relatively low complexity of procurement and therefore relatively low investment cost, it seems to be very attractive compared to other currently available options.

The project FlexInd, funded within the framework of the innovation program Climate-KIC aims at identifying technical potentials of flexibilisation of electricity demand in energy intensive industries. Together with industry partners from the respective branches their respective economic practicability and realisability are analysed. Further current possibilities of commercialisation are analysed and possible requirements of future industry / flexibilisation products are formulated.
