Free workshop: Industrial heat - efficient processes and renewable supply
Networking morning tea from 10am, presentations will commence at 10:30am.
The demand for industrial heat makes up a large proportion of Australia's energy use. While signficant inroads have been made into the efficient application of heat in industrial processes, the question of a sustainable long-term future supply of heat is far from settled.
This syposium brings together leading thinkers from government, industry and academia to discuss the range of opportunities for energy efficiency and renewable heat supply for industrial thermal processes.
Topics for discussion will include:
Klaus Vajen, Director of the Institute of Thermal Energy Engineering at Kassel University. "Solar process heat in Europe and beyond"
Yolanda Sztarr, Project Lead, Business Productivity at Sustainability Victoria. "Resource assessments to identify opportunities for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy"
Scott Beltman, Strategy & Knowledge Sharing at the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). "Support for renewable heat supply"
Ken Guthrie, Director of Sustainable Energy Transformation Pty Ltd and Chair of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Solar Heating and Cooling Program. "The IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme"
Sohum Gandhi, General Manager of Enriva, "Bioenergy options for process heat supply"
Jeremy Osborne, Director of EnergyAE. "Recent case studies from Australian industry and a summary of local opportunities"
Gary Rosengarten, Professor of Mechanical Engineering,RMIT. "Technology developments in rooftop solar collectors"
Emma Jacobs, Manager, Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Policy at the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), "Workshop Discussion: wrap-up and next steps"
