Webinar about Electrification RoadmapWebinar about Electrification Roadma
11 January 2022
On Monday December 6, Deltalinqs organized a webinar about the recently published ‘Road Map Electrification’. This roadmap shows how the Netherlands can make use of its unique position for large-scale electrification in industry and therefore a good reason to inform the members of Deltalinqs about developments in this area.
Harry van Dijk explained the content and implications of this Electrification Roadmap. The implications of electrification in industry are great: according to current estimates, 80 to 130TWh of industrial heat demand in the Netherlands will have been electrified by 2050, which corresponds to at least 60% of the total industrial energy demand. Then Harry explained that the roadmap outlines the conditions under which this potential can be unlocked and how the resulting electricity demand will affect the electricity sector and national CO2 emissions.
After this explanation, the participants were asked via Mentimeter about the biggest obstacles (both inside and outside their company) to electrifying their processes and which CO2 reduction technologies companies want to apply first.
Finally, Josepha van Kollenburg gave a presentation how the Fieldlab Industrial Electrification can support companies in the port of Rotterdam for electrifying their processes. In addition to connecting supply and demand for technology, the Fieldlab in their Solution Center also conducts feasibility studies for companies. By mid-2022, the Field Lab will have a demo location in the Botlek, where promising electrification technologies can be tested and further developed on an industrial scale for a number of test lines. The Fieldlab supports the search for the right ‘technology fit’ for electrification issues for industrial end users.
The high turnout during the webinar indicates that the topic is alive. We look back on a successful online meeting.
