What is required for the transformation to a climate-neutral industrial sector?

The development of transformation processes in the industry is particularly challenging. Techno-economic data is usually not published, there is a high degree of technological diversity, and the suitability of individual technologies depends on individual framework conditions. Cooperation with practical partners from the industry is therefore indispensable for successful decarbonization strategies. The FfE can draw on its broad network of experts. This means that practical data can be used to determine the costs, emissions, and energy consumption of a transformation. The FfE’s analysis and modeling methods are used for this purpose. Existing framework conditions such as the demand for industrial goods or compliance with specified climate targets are integrated into these approaches. The combination of science and practice generates industrial transformation paths that the relevant actors can also support.

Specifically, we look at the following questions:

  • Which climate-neutral technologies and energy sources can be considered for transformation in industry?
  • Why is the electrification of industrial processes only possible to a limited extent?
  • How are successful decarbonization strategies developed in companies?
  • Which influencing factors are decisive, and which interactions exist between industrial processes?
  • How are energy industry models structured, and how can existing framework conditions be mapped in quantitative scenarios?
