THE ROLE OF NORCE INSIDE TRINEFLEX PROJECT

What could be the benefit of the activities NORCE is carring out in Trineflex for energy intensive industries?

The research carried out by NORCE and partners in WP4 in TRINEFLEX will contribute to test the integration of flexible energy technologies as innovative solution and to increase the creation of sustainable value in Industrial demo cases. This will be a key to reduce energy consumption and gas emissions of the industrial partners involved in TRINEFLEX. NORCE and WP4 partners will generate and implement individualized technology configurations in each demo based on the process of each case and historical data. In addition, NORCE will assist on the digitalization of technologies and models to predict the impact of changes using the digital twin and a visual analysis to managers makers before any physical installation of flexible technologies.
