Project description

The general goal of this follow-up cSBO project is to develop data-driven modelling techniques and control methodologies, harness flexibility in the energy-intensive industry and enable its active participation in the energy transition while remaining cost-efficient and low in CO2 emissions. This project is a continuation of the previous sprint-cSBO project InduFlexControl. However, while the previous project focused entirely in modelling and control methodologies for unlocking the underlying flexibility, InduFlexControl-2 goes one step further, exploring how the incorporation of power-to-X technologies, storage and eventually an alternative (re-)design of selected components in the energy-intensive industry can extend the overall available flexibility.
