Article
Full-text available
A new concept for upgrading distributed co-generation plants to quad-generation plants, which combine the production of power, heating, cooling and synthetic natural gas (SNG), is designed and analyzed. Five cases with SNG production ranging from 0% to 100% of total energy outputs are designed to simulate different modes of operation. The quad-gene...
Conference Paper
We investigated the dynamics of a transcritical CO2 heat pump system including hot and cold thermal storages, which makes up the concept “thermal battery”. The analytical model is used for the study of the dynamics of the system involving simultaneous supply of heating and cooling for buildings. The model includes the dynamics of the gas cooler, ev...
Article
Full-text available
This paper defines and compares two strategies for integrating intermittent renewables: SuperGrid and SmartGrid. While conventional energy policy suggests that these strategies may be implemented alongside each other, the paper identifies significant technological and socio-economic conflicts of interest between the two.The article identifies diffe...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Continuous increasing of fuel prices due to the limited stock, together with their negative impact on the environment open the gates for new technologies, more environmental friendly resource and free to use resources like the ones used by renewable energies. In this paper an economic analysis and a feasibility study of a sustainable energy system...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The continuous increasing negative effects of fossil fuel consumption on society and the environment, opens a major interest into environmentally friendly alternatives to sustain the increasing demand for energy services. Despite the obvious advantages of renewable energy, it presents important technical and economic challenges. One such challenge...
Conference Paper
We present preliminary proof-of-concept experimental results on a thermoelectric heat pump system. In our previous work we proposed a thermal battery which would benefit from state-of-the-art heat pumps in order to provide useful cooling and heating. The preliminary analysis demonstrated the benefit of using excess electricity from intermittent ren...
Article
Increasing penetration levels of wind and solar power in the energy system call for the development of Smart Grid enabling technologies. As an alternative to expensive electro-chemical and mechanical storage options, the thermal energy demand in buildings offers a cost-effective option for intermittency-friendly electricity consumption patterns.Com...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Energy systems are faced with the challenges of reducing dependency on fossil fuels, while handling increasing penetration levels of intermittent renewables such as wind and solar power. At the same time, the efficient consumption of energy is vital for avoiding the impacts from increasing fuel prices. A significant part of this challenge may be de...
Article
Distributed cogeneration has played a key role in the implementation of sustainable energy policies for three decades. However, increasing penetration levels of intermittent renewables is challenging that position. The paradigmatic case of West Denmark indicates that distributed operators are capitulating as wind power penetration levels are moving...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A transcritical heat pump (THP) cycle using carbon dioxide (CO 2) as the refrigerant is known to feature an excellent coefficient of performance (COP) as a thermodynamic system. Using this feature, we are designing and building a system that combines a water-to-water CO 2 heat pump with both hot and cold thermal storages know as Thermal Battery (TB...
Article
This paper develops, implements, and applies a mathematical model for economic unit dispatch for a novel cogeneration concept (CHP-HP-FG-CS (CHP with compression heat pump and cold storage using flue gas heat)) that increases the plant’s operational flexibility. The CHP-HP-FG-CS concept is a high-efficiency and widely applicable option in distribut...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Increasing penetration levels of intermittent renewables are posing challenges to system operators and electricity producers. In West Denmark, which is a paradigmatic case by global comparison in terms of combining intermittent renewables and distributed cogeneration, we find that distributed cogeneration plants rather than central power plants are...
Article
Across the world, energy planners and transmission system operators are faced with decisions on how to deal with challenges associated with high penetration levels of intermittent energy resources and combined heat and power (CHP). At the same time, distributed plant operators are eager to reduce uncertainties related to fuel and electricity price...

Denne rapport udgør et delbidrag af rapporteringen fra projektet ” Effektiv fjernvarme i fremtidens energisystem”, som under Energistyrelsens Energiforskningsprogram (EFP) udføres af et konsortium af EA-energianalyse, Systemanalyseafdelingen på Risø DTU, RAM-løse edb samt Fjernvarmens visionsudvalg nedsat under Dansk Fjernvarmeforening. Formålet me...
Article
Full-text available
This paper shows that in support of its ability to improve the overall economic cost-effectiveness and flexibilily of the Danish energy system, the financially feasible integration of large-scale heat pumps (TIP) with existing combined heat and power (CHP) plants, is critically sensitive to the operational mode of the HP vis-a-vis the operational c...
Chapter
Full-text available
Key findings The purpose of this paper has been to explore options for using large-scale heat pumps for the purpose of relocation. Particular attention should be given to the following 5 key findings: 1. Large-scale compression and absorption heat pumps are competing options for increasing the overall efficiency of CHP production by utilizing conde...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter presents a planning framework which is intended to support interactivity in planning, adding meaning to the term "interactive planning". In particular, the chapter explores the usefulness of developing and applying software tools as a platform for interactivity, while addressing important technical and economic problems. What do planne...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Though it is being questioned whether planning theory should be fitted into neat typologies, some have described evolving planning theory as a journey away from ethnocentrism, through the lands of rationalism, pragmatism, socio-ecological idealism, political-economic mobilization, currently anchoring along the shores of the land of communications a...

Article
Kontekst Konceptet retter sig mod kraftvarmeproducenter i fjernvarmesektoren, der i indsatsen for at opnå højere virkningsgrader i produktionen, overvejer at installere en varmepumpe med henblik på yderligere udnyttelse af røggasvarme ved kondensering. Men som på grund af afgiftsreglerne alene vurderer en løsning med mekanisk/hydraulisk udveksling...
