SO WHAT

Integrated software for auditing industrial process, planning and simulation of WH/C

Description

SO WHAT project, financed by H2020 program, started in May 2019 and aims to develop and validate, through different sector and countries real industrial test cases, an integrated software for auditing industrial process, planning and simulation of waste heat and cold (WH/C) valorisation systems towards the identification of economically viable scenarios where WH/C and renewable energy sources (RES) cooperate to match local demand.

SO WHAT main objective is to develop and demonstrate an integrated and easy-to-use tool which will support industries and energy utilities in selecting, simulating and comparing alternative Waste Heat and Waste Cold exploitation technologies that could cost-effectively balance the local forecasted H&C demand also via RES integration.

Objectives

  • Auditing the industrial process to understand where WH/WC could be valorised.
  • Mapping the potential of locally available RES sources to be integrated with WH/WC potential.
  • Mapping the local forecasted demand for heating and cooling.
  • Define and simulate alternative cost-effective scenarios based on WH/WC technologies also leveraging TES introduction with proven economic viability.

Actions

  • Algorithms development for WH/C valorisation potential analysis.
  • Unlock industrial WH/C valorisation via suitable business and contractual models to be incorporated in the SOWHAT software for a complete techno-economic evaluation.
  • Development and validation of SO WHAT software.
  • SO WHAT Replication campaign thanks to Stakeholders engagement.
  • Dissemination and preparation of future commercial deployment of SO WHAT tool.

Expected results

  • Ensure a maximum prediction error in energy recovery estimate and CBA results between 5% and 10%.
  • Reduce the cost and time related to Energy Audits, and thus WH/C recovery projects, up to 0.4 €/m2 and 3-5 day/audit.
  • Increase the number of new project on industrial WH/C recovery, resulting in 27,705 accumulated projects by 2030.
  • Reach at least 36 industrial sites, including 24 SPIRE industries, 4 industrial parks, 12 public authorities, including 16 energy agencies, 12 DHC operators, 24 associations and 4 RTO by 2021.
