ETA-Transfer Tutorials

The Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and and Energy (German: Federal Ministery of Economic Affairs and Climate Action BMWK) supports research on increasing energy efficiency in the industry. During the BMWK-funded research project “ETA-Fabrik” numerous energy efficiency measures were implemented and tested in the research building together with industry and science partners. The findings are to be transferred to industry through the pilot implementation of innovative and marketable energy efficiency measures as part of the “ETA-Transfer” research project funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. At the same time, these same technologies are supported by grants.

The project, which was launched in June 2017, attracted a total of nine industrial partners from general mechanical engineering and the automotive industry. In an initial project phase, the respective production areas are currently being measured, both electrically and thermally, as part of on-site workshops at the partner companies. Based on this measurement data and other company-specific data, PTW quantifies energy efficiency potentials and develops a concept to raise these potentials. Based on this decision basis, the project partners then decide which measures are to be implemented in the implementation phase. The success of the measures will be monitored over a period of at least 12 months and disseminated to the industry through print media and filmic contributions.
