Title: Styrian Promise (production with solar energy)
The goal of the project Styrian Promise to produce an energetically and economically sensible combination of energy efficiency and the use of renewables in Styrian production industries. In ten Styrian production companies, innovative and economic solutions were developed for energy savings and the use of solar process heat. The achieved savings in the areas of heat integration, technological upgrading, and solar process heat amounted to more than 28 million kWh/a, for an annual reduction of 5830 tons of CO2. The total recommended collector surface totaled 2740 m² for five companies for whom planning was done.
