Clean Energy for Tourism: Management and Optimisation of Electricity Consumption in Ski Resorts

by Oxana Schmidt

The final consortium meeting of the NEFI project Clean Energy for Tourism took place from 19-20 September 2022. In this project, Salzburg ski resorts, as well as technology and research partners such as the AIT, BEST, Faradis, World Direct, Sattler Energie Consulting and the Montanuniversität Leoben, led by Salzburg AG, investigated opportunities for applying energy system flexibility, CO₂ mitigation options - as well as energy savings, in addition to the increasing the amount of integration of local renewable energy generation in ski resorts.

Review: NEFI Technology Talk: Decarbonisation of heating and cooling supply with geothermal energy and industrial waste heat

by Oxana Schmidt

The energy transition is also a heat transition, and this aspect has hardly been talked about so far. Since the beginning of the year, the energy crisis has brought this challenge into the public sphere. Five keynotes highlighted the possibilities of how heating and cooling networks can be decarbonised with the help of geothermal energy and industrial waste heat at this NEFI Talk .

Electricity grid security: Survey on the contribution of industry. Incentives and potentials for the provision of flexibility

by Oxana Schmidt

Industrial companies will have the opportunity to make a major contribution to grid stability in Austria as active participants in the energy system. Flexibilities can be used to economically utilise both surplus and shortfall production of electricity. How this should be designed in the future is being worked out by the consortium of Industry4Redispatch. In particular, the view of the needs and requirements of industrial companies are essential to develop a functioning system and to create incentives for industrial companies.

Net-Zero Industries Mission: Have your say in a short online survey!

by Oxana Schmidt

Energy-intensive industries such as steel, cement and chemicals are responsible for a quarter of global GHG emissions. The potential for CO₂ avoidance is around 60 gigatonnes by 2030, but new technologies and innovations need to be developed until then, because around 2030 the next modernisation cycle is also due in this sector.
