The decarbonization of industry is becoming a reality. According to the current climate strategy #emission2030, CO2 emissions are to be reduced to almost zero by the year 2050. As time is running out for our climate, every company is asked to make its contribution. But how can this great challenge be met? The AIT Center for Energy supports companies, locations and industries in this process.
Analyses for investment decisions
Efficiency measures must be well considered before an investment decision can be made on the integration of waste heat recovery, heat pump or storage integration. The first step is the analysis of the actual state, whereby it must first be examined whether the data situation and measuring technique are sufficient, in order to be able to make a conclusive statement. The AIT will be happy to support you with potential and implementation analyses.
Deployment optimization & digital twin
The first step for the implementation of efficiency measures is the analysis of the current situation. Since companies often lack the necessary metrological infrastructure, the AIT Center for Energy offers the necessary monitoring. We have many years of expertise and experience and can therefore identify the right measurement parameters as well as analyze process and energy flows and evaluate them using a digital twin.
The integration of new technologies and innovations creates multiple added value in industrial processes. Industrial heat pumps, high-temperature storage tanks and highly innovative technologies and methods simultaneously enable more economical, safer and more efficient operation of industrial plants. The AIT Center for Energy is your ideal partner when it comes to the question which technology is best suited for your project.
Design & Development
We support industrial companies, component and plant manufacturers in the design, development and optimization of efficient plants and novel components. Our many years of experimental experience in the field of industrial heat pumps and high-temperature storage tanks combined with our extensive knowledge in modeling and simulation of complete plants and systems enables us to find the optimal solutions for your project.
Analysis & Simulation
Through model-based analyses and digital twins, we enable you to optimize the production process and energy use off-line. We identify and evaluate possible measures and their effects in terms of product quality and production costs. With our many years of experience and expertise in the field of mathematical modeling and simulation of complex dynamic processes, we are your ideal partner for detailed analyses at component, plant and factory level.
"Klares Ziel von Wienerberger ist die Verringerung des Ressourceneinsatzes in der Produktion. Da die Trocknung der energieintensivste Prozess der Ziegelherstellung ist, tauschen wir uns zur Prozessoptimierung seit Jahren mit dem AIT aus und konnten bereits viele wertvolle Erkenntnisse sammeln."
