Towards electrification in industry

Electrification is a key option for decarbonization of industrial processes. However, current economic conditions and regulatory framework limit the large-scale deployment of electrification technologies. At the same time further development of renewable electricity supply relies strongly on the volume and flexibility of future demand, also in industry. To overcome a stagnation in the process of electrification the coalition Wind meets Industry is founded.

Both sectors, electricity and industry, have requested a roadmap for electrification in Dutch industry as an action under the national climate agreement. TKI Energy and Industry is in the lead for the roadmap for which the first steps have been made. The roadmap will describe technology pathways, key challenges and possible solutions, and it will pinpoint decision points and actions on the road to strong electrification in Dutch industry.

Follow us on the journey towards electrification in the Dutch industry during two side events at EIES!

Towards electrification in industry – technical routes

TKI Energy and Industry coordinates the development of the roadmap for electrification in Dutch industry. The organization works together with knowledge partners TNO and DNV GL. In this session TKI Energy and Industry highlights the importance of the roadmap and TNO discusses the technical backbone of the roadmap. We highlight which technologies will emerge when, and how this translates into site-specific developments.

During this session the Institute for Sustainable Process Technology (ISPT) and TKI Energy and Industry explore with industrial experts, how electrification will develop on an integrated site such as Chemelot. This will include technology options, timing, and infrastructure needs.

In this session: Rob Kreiter, Andreas ten Cate, Sebastiaan Hers, René Slaghek, Michiel Dorresteijn
