Smart Heating – Intelligent Industrial Furnaces

Industrial furnaces are among the largest energy consumers in Germany. Making these furnaces more intelligent, operating them with renewable energies and reducing pollution are the aims of the "SmartHeating" project.

By equipping industrial furnaces with electronic heating elements and using renewable energies as optimal as possible, operators will not only save costs and raise productivity—the environment will also benefit from this increased efficiency. Thus, Germany can come closer to achieving its goal of reducing CO2 emissions.
