Project concerning Industry 4.0


JARA - Energy as a Production Factor for the Modern Industry of the Future: Industry 4.0

Ongoing project (07/2016 – 10/2017), funded by JARA ENERGY

Germany is currently undergoing a transition process from a controllable fossil energy supply to an intermittent renewable energy supply. Such a pioneering transition leads to a tremendous challenge for the high-tech industry. However, this transition can also be an opportunity in order to gain international competitive advantages for the German economy. Therefore, successful strategies and technologies must be developed to raise the potential of the new energy supply. The objective of the JARA-funded strategy project is to identify the pertinent research questions concerning energy consumption in the industry of the future ("Industry 4.0").
