This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 691624
The German research project ’Dezentral’ aims at finding and developing solutions and techniques for decentral feed-in in district heating systems. Basing on the example of solar thermal energy, already existing solutions will be adapted to the constraints of renewable energies.
The Steinbeis Research Institute for Solar and Sustainable Thermal Energy Systems Solites, the technical University of Dresden and the German Heat and Power Association AGFW are working together to find and develop new solutions for decentral feed-in in district heating systems. Financed by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology the project will last 3 years, till the end of 2014.
The technical solutions on the substation level will be researched and innovative ones developed, but the general effect of the decentral feed-in of energy in the net will also be studied and possibly optimized. Beneath the technical developments, a comprehensive simulation tool is to be developed. The example of solar thermal energy is chosen because it is the renewable energy which shows the highest requirements when decentrally feeding-in a district heating system.
Save the date! The 5th International Solar District Heating Conference will take place on 11 and 12 April 2018 in Graz, Austria.
