I-ThERM Kick-Off Meeting public

The I-ThERM (Industrial THermal Energy Recovery conversion and Management) project officially started few days ago whereas its Kick-Off meeting took place on Friday 9th of October 2015, on the premises of the Centre for Sustainable Energy in Food chain (CSEF) at Brunel University in London, UK. The meeting was attended not only by all the partners, but also by a representative of the European Commission (EC) – a fact that shows the importance of the I-ThERM project for the EC. 

I-ThERM, with project number 680599 is funded under the  topic EE-18-2015: “New technologies for utilisation of heat recovery in large industrial systems, considering the whole energy cycle from heat production to transformation, delivery & use” and aims to investigate, design, build and demonstrate innovative plug and play waste heat recovery solutions and the optimum utilisation of energy within and outside the plant perimeter for selected applications with high replicability and energy recovery potential in the temperature range 70 oC-1000 oC.

The meeting started with Brunel presenting the scope of the project, the work packages, the milestones and the deliverables. After that, each partner presented their entity, their role to I-ThERM and their expectations of the project’s results. The EC representative gave a vibrant presentation regarding H2020 projects including Do’s and Don’t’s in each aspect of a H2020, along with an overview of all the EE projects that got funded under the specific call for this period. Before the end of the meeting a fruitful discussion regarding the first quarter (Q1) actions that have to take place until 31 December 2015 conducted.
