Urban excess heat utilization in future energy systems
The aim of the report (2019) is to put the identified annual available heat potentials from four different heat sources into the perspective of a national energy system to assess how they can be integrated and utilized.
The report presents an analysis of the four potential heat sources investigated in the ReUseHeat project; data centers, waste water treatment, metro ventilation, and service sector cooling. These heat sources have in common that they need a heat pump to boost the temperature to a sufficient level for heat supply. The four heat sources using heat pumps are analyzed in the context of the national energy systems of Germany, Spain, France, and Romania using the respective available heat potentials identified in the ReUseHeat project.
Key words: waste heat, excess heat, energy planning, smart energy systems, heat pump
