So-What tool presentation

SO WHAT releases presentation about the tool being developed

SO WHAT’s main objective is to develop and demonstrate a market-ready integrated software that will support industries and energy utilities in simulating and comparing alternative Waste Heat and Waste Cold (WH/C) technologies, and simulate how to balance the local forecasted Heat and Cold demand and supply, including renewable energy sources integration. This is expected to reduce the cost and time related to energy audits and boost Waste Heat and Cold recovery and reuse.

To do so, SO WHAT is capitalizing already existing tool and knowledge from previous research experiences, and it will test the software in a set of demo sites across Europe that are active part of the project.

The project is now entering the software development phase and the consortium partners have prepared and launched a presentation providing an overview of this tool and including the following information: 

  • Overview of the tool and its functions
  • A comparison between the online (free) and advanced (commercial) versions
  • The industrial sectors that could be covered 
  • The user workflows
  • A tentative timeline and current progress

This presentation is available in the documents’ section of this website and in this link.


SO WHAT’s webinar featured by EASME

The Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) featured the webinar organised by SO WHAT in cooperation with other four European projects: EMB3RsINCUBISR-ACES and S-PARCS.

The session, which took place on November 18, 2020, revolved around WH/C recovery, the tools they are developing to empower it, and potential synergies between industrial parks and the surrounding community.




SO WHAT at Sustainable Places

Our SO WHAT consortium partner the University of Birmingham participated in the online conference Sustainable Places, where Adriano Sciacovelli presented a paper: Kinetic modelling of thermochemical energy storage reactions for storage of solar heat and waste heat.

The presentation included some of the preliminary results of the SO WHAT project, such as the main barriers identified, and a shortlist of thermochemical energy storage material options.

Sustainable Places 2020 was held over four days in digital event format and it explored sustainability themes such as: circular economy, digital twins, BIPV, local energy communities, sustainable digital infrastructure, and more.
