CE-HEAT at 12th SDEWES Conference


The 12th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems – SDEWES Conference will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia on October 4 - 8, 2017.

Within the SDEWES Conference project CE-HEAT organizes a special event on Exploitation of waste heat potentials in Europe, which will be held on 5th of October.

The special event marks waste heat as an important energy source, which should be valorized in existing and future energy systems. The project initiative CE-HEAT rephrases the waste heat as endogenous energy that should be actively recovered when possible and should become an indispensable part of all energy concepts in future. The main objective of the special event is to provide an improved, up-to-date understanding of the fundamentals, principles and practices associated with the operation of waste heat utilization systems. 

In broader view, the exploitation of thermal energy as excess energy of industrial processes across Europe will be featured. The event will provide the dissemination of information concerned the exploitation of waste heat potentials in EU and developments in the field of waste heat recovery in specific industrial processes. The efforts of CE-HEAT initiative towards the common Central Europe (CE) waste heat sources cadastre and a waste heat platform will be presented. The event will be wrapped up by the panel discussion leading to the directions for enhancement of investment mechanisms and strategic guidelines for improvement of waste heat utilization in CE space.
