The role of district heating in coupling of the future renewable energy sectors
In this paper (2018) the potential of utilizing synergies between the power and heat sectors are explored by considering the projections for the Danish energy system in 2025. The result of the analysis shows the optimum energy storage of renewable power is achieved through fuel displacement in the heating sector in combination with utility sized heat pumps, electric boilers and large thermal storages.
