Plan the integration and coordination of energy systems, including electricity, gas, and thermal networks.
Plan for Thermal Networks
Heating and cooling demands are large and represent potential sources of flexibility. How do you plan the future of thermal networks?
The challenges the industry is facing
Increasing cooling demands
Energy planners must keep up with the demand for new cooling services.
Electrification of district heating
Independent planning solutions do not fully capture the interface between electricity and thermal networks.
Thermal network expansion
Additional customers can only be served when added in batches and must be planned carefully.
Thermal energy storage technologies
Differences and complementarities between storage technologies must be considered for proper planning.
The waste of industrial processes and renewable heat need to be considered.
