“In the public debate surrounding the energy transition, the challenge of industrial process heat has often been overlooked. Yet energy-intensive industrial sectors such as steel, chemicals, textiles, food and the paper industry in Europe consume almost 2,000 terawatt hours of energy per year for the production of process heat. In Germany, around half of the end energy consumption is accounted for by the generation of heat, with the generation of process heat making up around 23 per cent across all sectors according to the Federal Environment Agency. However, according to dena, the share of green heat is only approximately 15 per cent. Accordingly, process heat and process steam still offer enormous potential for savings and therefore also a significant lever for reducing CO2 emissions.”
