The urgent need for a dramatic reduction of fossil fuels in the built environment is without any doubt. The energy saving potential of the building stock is considered to be large and to be the most cost efficient sector to contribute to the CO2 reductions. Goals set by the European Union are to build net zero energy buildings in 2020 and to...

A method is determined to calculate the energy saving potential of Aramid-based conveyor belts. This method should be accurate enough to provide a relevant annual energy consumption, but should not be too complex, since it is to be used in an industrial application. Several methods from literature are assessed for this purpose, of which two are...
