Research project FlexIndustries – Monitoring, analysis and optimization of energy-intensive industrial processes
Digitally supported FLEXible Industries for reliable power grids with high penetration of variable renewable energy sources (VRES)
The FLEXIndustries program develops and demonstrates a dynamic energy and process management platform to monitor, analyze, and optimize the most energy-intensive industrial processes by properly managing emerging demand response mechanisms and providing asset and process flexibility and grid services. The unique premise of FLEXIndustries is the optimal integration of
- innovative energy generation, storage and conversion systems (e.g. BESS and waste heat recovery solutions based on novel HPs, ORC and thermoelectric systems),
- intelligent and digital tools for optimized operation and control, all of which are supported by
- novel business models and market mechanisms for improved industrial flexibility.
The research project is funded within the HORIZON project CORDIS.
The funding startet in June 2022 and will last 4 years.
