Decarbonisation targets are becoming clearer and ever closer for businesses - and society at large. However, current trajectories show industrial process heat remaining business-as-usual in terms of energy consumption and carbon intensity for the next 10 years.
This needs to change. And it can change with technologies already available today that can enable the electrification of industry and which deliver additional non-energy benefits.
