Thermal Energy has published a whitepaper for TÜV SÜD to inspire further trust in Venturi Steam Trap Technology.
TEI Collaborates with Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)
Recognising Thermal Energy’s expertise in heat pump technology, COO Robert Triebe was invited to collaborate on a training webcast.
According to the EPRI, ‘the industrial sector consumes approximately one-third of the final energy globally and accounts for 25% of energy-related CO2 emissions. Chemicals, Cement, Food Manufacturing, and other industries are large consumers of energy and producers of CO2 emissions. Currently, industrial heat is provided by fossil energy or low-grade electric heating in most cases. Heat pumps are an attractive solution for heat delivery because of their energy efficiency combined with the use of electricity as the input energy source, which together offers a clear route to deep decarbonization’.
The Electrification Program equips utility representatives to understand product options for energy-efficient electrification of industrial process heating, allowing them to develop electrification and/or energy efficiency incentive programs through site demonstrations and technology transfer.
Since EPRI’s members represent approximately 90 percent of the electricity generated and delivered in the United States, and international participation extends to more than 30 countries, the project also serves to establish relationships with potential industrial heat pump manufacturers to foster continued technology innovation.
“Heat Pumps are a central topic of discussion for many on the road to decarbonization but considering heat pumps without integration of heat recovery from other sources at a given site, or across a portfolio, is a missed opportunity. The heat recovery / heat pump combination can provide much greater efficiencies than heat pumps alone when delivering thermal energy” said Rob Triebe, Thermal Energy COO.
