RETROFEED dissemination event

ENERGY AUDIT IN TIMES OF COVID-19:
the RETROFEED augmented reality experience

Wednesday, 2nd December 2020
H 10:00 - 12:00 CET
Free event - Online MS Teams

The world pandemic has revolutionized almost every economic activity, including industry. But how to carry on with the normal activity of factories in this worldwide situation? The RETROFEED project shows a solution to the problem. It has given, in fact, proof that, even remotely, conducting energy audits is possible. How? Thanks to augmented reality.

But what is the link between energy audits and augmented reality? And what would it mean for the industry, struggling with the adaptation of its activities to the pandemic?

Find out more by attending our free online event, where we will show how energy intensive industries are adapting to the consequences of Covid-19.

Background information

What is RETROFEED?

RETROFEED is a EU-funded H2020 project, aiming at enabling the use of an increasingly variable, bio-based and circular feedstock in process industries through the retrofitting of core equipment and the implementation of an advanced monitoring and control system, and providing support to the plant operators by means of a DSS – Decision Support System – covering the production chain.

This approach is demonstrated in five resource and energy intensive sectors (ceramic, cement, aluminium, steel, and agrochemical) with the potential to reach in average an increase of 22% in resource efficiency and 19% in energy efficiency, with a consequent reduction in costs and GHG emissions of 9.3 M€ and 135 kton CO2 respectively.
