Potential and implementation analyses

Potential and implementation analyses

Efficiency measures must be well thought out before an investment decision can be made on the integration of waste heat recovery, heat pumps and thermal or electrical storage. The first step is the analysis of the actual state, whereby it must first be examined whether the data situation and measurement technology are sufficient to make a conclusive statement.

The AIT Center for Energy is happy to support you in this process. We prepare the data and analyze process flows and energy flows, consisting of exergy and anergy, in order to derive the most economical efficiency measures. The possible efficiency measures are checked for technical and economic effectiveness by means of simulations and thus form the basis for investment decisions.

The AIT Center for Energy offers you extensive experience and expertise and also supports you in planning and implementation.
