SO WHAT at the Rankine 2020 Conference

Our consortium partner the University of Birmingham participated in the online Rankine Conference 2020 with the presentation of two papers that included some of the findings and work of the SO WHAT Project:

- Organic Rankine cycles combined with thermochemical heat transformers to enhance the power output from waste heat.

- Latent heat and thermochemical storage as enablers for waste heat-to-power and heat-upgrade: a general approach.

The first presentation took place on July 28, and it was carried out by Giovanni Manente, while the second one happened on July 30 and it was presented by Adriano Sciacovelli..

Current barriers to industrial WH/C recovery and exploitation

Interested in understanding the challenges to industrial  Waste Heat and Waste Cold (WH/C) recovery?
Our partners from Göteborg Energi and IVL Svenska Miljöinstitutet have elaborated a report about the current barriers to industrial WH/C recovery and exploitation, based on the experiences of the SO WHAT - Project demo sites!

The document follows the logic of PESTLE - Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal, and Environmental - analysis for each of the countries engaged in the project.

Current contractual agreements for WH/C exploitation

In addition to the challenges mentioned in the report above, it's also important to look into current contractual arrangements, which may be designed to overbridge barriers to collaboration.

We have released a new report focusing on the opportunities to exporting WH/C resources off-site, through a heat/cold distribution network, and including smart contracting and digital technologies applied to new efficient energy markets.
