Unavoidable energy resulting from industrial processes: assessment tool on the scale of the industrial area or territory

Tool developed in partnership with ADEME

WHY ?

  • Estimate, within a given territory hosting a variety of industrial activities, the theoretical annual potential of heat lost from different equipment (furnaces, boilers, driers etc.)

AS PART OF WHICH MISSIONS ?

  • Energy recovery listing and mapping within a territory or industrial area
  • Energy study in industrial ecology

WHICH APPROACH ?
 

1. Integration of process data specific to each industrial company of the area concerned

2. If there is no logical data, reliable statistics from business sector surveys are uses

3. Assessment of the heat available within an industrial area or territory

POINTS FORTS
  • Rapid assessment
  • Flexible decision-making aid tool using specific  local data or ratios derived from field surveys if data is unavailable
  • Visual and revealing results: the tool provides a mapping representation of results for a clear and rapid visualization
  • Tool developed in partnership with ADEME between 2010 and 2012
