Survey on SWOT factors for Hybrid Energy Networks
District heating and cooling (DHC) networks traditionally have strong links to electricity and gas networks via combined heat and power (CHP) processes. However, the role of CHP plants will significantly change due to growing competition for renewable fuels and an increasing share of renewable electricity production. Consequently, in the future, other heat sources will be needed for DHC networks and other options for flexibility will be needed for electricity networks.
You are a professional in the area of DHC, electricity or gas networks; or on energy systems in general? We would appreciate hearing your thoughts!
