TrustEE prepares and finances energy efficiency and renewable energy projects that supply industrial process heating (PH) demands.
Why focus on industrial process heating?
Industry accounts for about 25% of the EU28 final energy demand. Of the total industrial energy demand, process heating consumes 1920 tera-watt hours or about sixty percent (60%). (1)
What is industrial process heating?
Steam, warm water, hot water or other warm/hot media is produced for use in industrial processes.
Fuels such as natural gas, coal, petroleum products, and biomass supply these processes.
