energy audits and energy efficiency in industry
is running out to avert catastrophic consequences from global warming.
Following IPCC’s wake-up call, bold and decisive action is needed now. With a
third of global final energy consumption, industry has a key role in the
of the end-use sector, energy efficiency is key to decarbonisation,
productivity gains, energy security, improved competitiveness and
socio-economic benefits. Efficiency improvements also reduce costs associated
with maintenance, production stand-still and insurance fees. And, importantly,
this will have positive employment benefits throughout the economy.
Fast decarbonisation key challenge
decarbonisation of industry presents a formidable challenge. In a few sectors,
such as iron and steel, new carbon-free processes may lead to more electricity
being used. Just going for renewables is not enough. By increasing efficiency
across all sectors and end-uses we can free up resources to make this
transition affordable and manageable.
Looking beyond carbon and energy
Efficiency 2020 will explore current and emerging trends in industry, such
as new business models, digitalisation, industry 4.0, the circular economy and
resource efficiency, and discuss the significance of these trends for
delivering decarbonisation. The multiple benefits of energy efficiency are of
Six panels on accelerating the decarbonisation
presentations by participants are based on an abstract submission for any of
the following six panels (for a complete description of the panels and
presentation of the panel leaders, see the panels
and theme pages).
- Policies and
programmes to drive transformation
production towards a circular economy
- Energy management – in real life
- Technology, processes and systems
- Business models, finance and
- Deep decarbonisation of industry
A vibrant and proud industry and harbour city
event was planned to take place in Gothenburg, on the west coast of
Sweden. It is a proud and vibrant
industrial and harbour city, traditionally open to the rest of the world. It is
the hometown of several of Sweden’s world-famous manufacturing companies such
as Volvo and SKF.

Gotheburg-based Chalmers Industriteknik and Chalmers University of
Technology. Chalmers Industriteknik is a consulting company in industrial
energy, materials, design and circular economy with its roots in Chalmers
Compact format and mixed presentations
panel presentations of either peer-reviewed papers or extended
abstracts (without accompanying paper) will be offered in two sessions mid-day
to accommodate for parrticipants in other time zones.
welcome you to four days packed with presentations.
