Abstract
Electrical heating is still widely used in the process industry. While the use of immersion heaters for the production of hot water or steam is declining, the adoption rate of electrical heat pumps is increasing rapidly. Heat pumps show great flexibility and potential for energy savings, e.g. through low temperature waste heat recuperation. In combination with thermal storage they also allow for load shifting. Because their main power source is electricity, which up to now cannot be stored efficiently, heat pumps can transpose their thermal load shifting ability to the electrical grid. Today, more and more industrial electricity consumers are adopting energy sup...
