EDCS: ILF develops concept for industrial energy supply systemmore
As part of an energy research project, ILF has carried out a specific technical, economic and ecological evaluation of an innovative EDCSproof energy concept for Wiesbauer, an Austrian sausage producer. EDCSproof stands for “Energy Demand Control System – Process Optimization For industrial low-temperature systems” and is a collaborative research project led by the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT), funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) and involving eight scientific and industrial partners.
The primary goal is to develop an online control concept for industrial energy supply systems. This concept shall support the integration of renewables through the use of energy storage, create “flexible consumers” for electric grids, increase efficiency through optimal control of the overall system, and utilize waste heat by using high-temperature heat pumps (<150°C). Hence, it is a concept for decarbonization which recognizes the possibilities of digitalization.
The evaluation carried out by ILF included an investment calculation based on possible installation locations and the integration of the respective components in the power supply system taking into account the route of the existing piping, spatial conditions and other project parameters. ILF compared the EDCSproof energy concept with Wiesbauer’s existing energy concept (CO2 savings, reduction of primary energy factor, cost reduction, etc.) and detected an energy and production cost saving potential.
