Alliance for Energy Cooperation in European Industries

The Alliance for Energy Cooperation in European Industries

is a collaborative initiative arranged by five European-funded projects working on waste heat recovery and industrial energy cooperation:
These initiatives combine the efforts of 64 unique partners across 18 European countries, which have received a total of €14.5 million in funding.

The collaboration began back in November 2020, with a joint online workshop on waste heat recovery and energy cooperation in European industries, and it consolidated in April 2021, with the signature of a collaboration agreement.

The Energy Cooperation in European Industries is open to external entities interested in joining.

Objectives of the Alliance

  • Enhance the collaboration to boost energy efficiency in European industries.
  • Maximize the impact and improve the quality and the relevance of the outputs generated by each of the projects conforming the alliance.
  • Boost industrial symbiosis as well as waste heat and waste cold recovery and reuse.
  • Contribute to the 2050 goal of zero net carbon emissions.

Benefits for members​

Communication and dissemination benefits:

  • Maximise the impact of your events: join forces to events, we host joint presentations at conferences and participate in each other’s events. ​

Technical validation, exploitation and replication: 

  • The Alliance is composed by technical stakeholders from the sector that can provide valuable feedback for validation of each project’s outcomes.​
  • In addition, the related projects are one of key target audiences that could leverage the outcomes for their own exploitation and replication.
