We have elaborated a map showcasing all the SO WHAT Demo Sites that will serve to validate the technology developed by the project, and we have created a new section on the project website providing some information about each of them!
The SO WHAT partners celebrated an exploitation workshop conducted by the consortium partner Sustainable Innovations (SIE), in May. The aim of the session was to assess the project’s requirements regarding key exploitable results (KER) and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).
The outcomes of this workshop will serve to elaborate an exploitation plan and a business strategy for the tool being developed.
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 Energiand 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.
Requirements for energy auditing and for the
SO WHAT tool
Our project coordinator RINAhas elaborated a report on the data requirements for energy auditing and specifically for the feeding of information to the future SO WHAT tool, as well as on their formats and on the most suitable indicators to compare energy performance data across different industries.

Our partner Martini & Rossi talks about its involvement in SO WHAT as Demo site
Casa Martini - Martini & Rossiis one of the SO WHAT Project partners and exploitation demo sites. They've been working on energy efficiency since years ago, putting in place different measures to boost sustainability.
Luca Castellino, Maintenance and Engineering Manager at Martini, explains in this video interview that they expect SO WHAT to help in the identification of new waste heat and cold recovery options based on accurate data and forecast. This will help the company reach its next level of sustainability.
