The PRO-TEM Network was established in 2009 in alignment with the need of thermal energy management in the process industries. The main concern is how to improve and optimise the thermal energy efficiency in existing plants as well as the design of the future plants.  The PRO-TEM Network has been trying to create opportunities to enable a close collaboration among members who work at academics, industry organisations, NGOs and the government bodies in the UK and beyond. It is hoped that the Network can contribute to create a low carbon future and a highly efficient use of energy in the process industries.
