Synopsis:
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has released ‘Renewable Energy Options for Industrial Process Heat’, produced by ITP Thermal in conjunction with Pitt&Sherry, the Institute for Sustainable Futures and Beyond Zero Emissions, in November 2019. The report outlines opportunities for industrial users to switch to renewable energy alternatives to provide process heat. It shows that shifting to renewable energy to generate process heat is possible for industrial sites over the short, medium and long-term using numerous technologies and approaches. This includes bioenergy, geothermal, electrification, hydrogen and solar thermal, together with process redesign, combining heat and power and co-locating greenfield developments with renewable resources.
