There is a significant potential for energy savings and CO2 mitigation by improving thermal insulation in industrial installations. This potential is currently untapped despite being cost-effective to implement.
The EiiF provides facts and figures and publishes reports, factsheets and studies showing that the savings potential of industrial insulation is large and exists across all regions and sectors. EiiF best practices examples also prove how with insulation solutions we can help industry to save energy.
To build awareness of the savings potential of industrial insulation, the EiiF advocates for energy efficiency at EU and national levels, participating in roundtables and high-level meetings with decision makers, EU parliamentarians, national politicians and business leaders.
Furthermore, the EiiF gives presentations and speeches at energy efficiency and industry-related conferences and exhibitions.
The EiiF is also engaged in EU working groups such as the SFEM (Sector Forum Energy Management), EEFIG (Energy Efficiency Financial Institutions Group) and BREF.
We set up the TIPCHECK Programme. The aim of the TIPCHECK Programme is to provide industry with tools and solutions to save energy and to reduce CO2 emissions by improving their technical insulation systems.
Within the framework of the TIPCHECK Programme, the EiiF offers:
insulation energy audits
thermal calculation software
THE KEYMARK SECRETARIAT
We manage the KEYMARK Secretariat since 2019.
The KEYMARK is a certificate proving that the product has been thoroughly tested in registered testing laboratories and meets all relevant European product Standards, not only legally required minimum requirements. The KEYMARK certificate can only be issued by an empowered certification body.
INNOVATION, RESEARCH & EDUCATION
Innovation, research and education play a crucial role when it comes to raising awareness of the growing, much needed benefits of insulation, as well as to developing the next generation of insulators.
We are engaged in research & education projects with universities and private partners with the aim to increase energy efficiency in industry.
Our research projects develop inspection and maintenance tools introducing digitization to the world of technical insulation, like infrared and 3D-technology.
Furthermore, the EiiF promotes the young generation through organizational participation in international educational competitions such us the FESI European Insulation Apprentice Championship and the allocation of scientific projects to junior scientists.
Our current research project eDIan funded with about 600.000 EUR by the German Ministry for Education and Research started in 2016 in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS) and industrial partners. The goal: the combination of infrared technology with 3D scanning for TIPCHECK and energy efficient insulation purposes.
