Matching processes with electrification technologies
van Delft, Y.C.

In the future the supply of renewable electricity will increase sharply, from 44 PJ in 2013 to 236 PJ in 2030 and increasing more thereafter. Being a large energy consumer, the Dutch chemical industry is expected to use a significant share of this renewable electricity, as it can help to reduce its carbon footprint. But which chemical processes can be electrified and what are the possible electrification options? What is a realistic potential of electrification of the chemical industry and what is the impact on the energy system? This report presents the results of a model-based merit order analysis, case studies analyses and a first impact assessment.
