Estimation of the demand response cost value; integration models to energy market, analysis of impact
As part of mySMARTLife, the impact of demand response in heat production will be evaluated. The tri-generation system enables very high efficiency rates (over 90% in power and heat production). The cooling is using excess heat from buildings and seawater as a cooling source. The optimum will be sought, from city network perspective, by control strategies enabling low carbon efficient solutions at district level. The action includes the integration of waste heat sources in the network.
During 2019, Helen started a preliminary evaluation project on production optimization and heat demand response of district heating network in Helsinki. One of the objectives of this project is to define the most profitable and realistic way of deployment of demand response of district heating in Helsinki.
