This edition showcases projects investigating and adopting renewable energy solutions to decarbonise commercial and industrial heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R).
Industrial process heat accounts for over 40% of fossil fuel use in industry. The Australian Alliance for Energy Productivity (A2EP) has conducted 27 studies to investigate renewable process heating technologies across a range of food, beverage and industrial processes. The studies show that industrial heat pumps are suited for low temperature heating applications and are economically and technically feasible for processes operating at temperatures lower than 90˚C.
