The steel industry’s quest for an emissions-free future
- 19 Apr 2021
As the effects of global warming continue to capture headlines around Europe, many of the region’s major industries from steelmaking to chemical production are responding to the European Union’s call to radically reduce emissions sooner rather than later
The energy transition is underway
Project’s update - 16 Mar 2021
How can industries navigate the energy transition? The current paper shows the crucial role of energy flexibility and the key function of variable renewable energy to both stabilize the grid and fulfil the decarbonisation targets. The paper is based on a BAMBOO case study in the paper industry.

Energy flexibility in process industries: a companies’ must-have for the energy transition
Press release - 31 Aug 2020
In the past decades, the production industries focused their attention on the concept of energy flexibility to anticipate the energy transition requirements, lower the energy costs and cope with the energy prices fluctuations. The paper mentioned below investigates different flexibility strategies and identifies the requirements for the integration in a process industry environment. The analysis is based on a real case-study of the paper production plant UPM, located in Germany
