This document (2018) has been produced in the context of the FLEXYNETS Project.
The distributed energy generation approach elaborated within FLEXYNETS produces heat marketability and management issues: a change of paradigm is needed to move from the actual “monopolistic” generation, distribution and trading structure implemented in today’s DHC networks, to a structure where multiple actors can play the role of the energy provider and where even the final consumers can economically profit from their waste heat provided to the network. Trading strategies developed, allowing thermal and electric energy exchange on this “free-market” are described in this report.
