SO WHAT hosts online consortium meeting

The SO WHAT partners celebrated its second General Assembly Meeting on April 15. The gathering was originally meant to take place in Constanța, Romania, but due to the restrictions related to COVID19 it was finally hosted online.
All the partners connected to an online session during which they presented the project’s progress, activities performed and forthcoming ones, and hosted different working sessions to discuss the upcoming work and strategy.
We missed a face-to-face meeting, but we still managed to bring up great ideas and inputs!

New report on industrial WH/C recovery technologies

There is a wide range of industrial Waste Heat and Cold (WH/C) recovery technologies currently available. They greatly differ in terms of operating principles and conditions, target applications, development stage, costs, and benefits.

Our partner Adriano Sciacovelli from the University of Birmingham, elaborated a comprehensive and unified view of the currently existing portfolio of WH/C recovery technologies: 
 ➤ Heat-to-Heat technologies;
 ➤ Thermal Energy Storage technologies;
 ➤ Heat-to-Cold technologies;
 ➤ Heat-to-Power technologies;
 ➤ Heat upgrade technologies.

Nick Purshouse speaks about the SO WHAT Project objectives

Our technical coordinator presents
SO WHAT's objectives

Our technical project coordinator Nick Purshouse, from IES Ltd., explains some of the So WHAT - Project objectives in a video interview:
➤ Model Waste Heat and Cold (WH/C) coming from the industrial environment.
➤ Explore better ways to recover and reuse WH/C in the surrounding communities.
➤ Map the local WH/C demand to equilibrate and optimize the supply.
➤ Include renewable energy sources to create a better energy balance.

User requirements for the SO WHAT tool

One of the key things to develop the SO WHAT tool is to understand the specific needs of the industry and energy utilities. In order to understand them, we carried out a research based on a design-thinking workshop, interviews, and an online survey. We involved industrial sites and stakeholders to understand the main user requirements for the software.

Our partner Susana Mª Gutierrez, from CARTIF, elaborated a report with an analysis of all the inputs from the interview, questionnaires and workshop responses, grouping the technical requirements from a user perspective.
