The aim of the Danish/Austrian project HEATflex is to develop a common technical and economic strategy to increase the use of waste heat and the competitiveness of CHP. A perspective is by providing HEAT flexibility in district heating networks through the following 2 approaches, that are linked to each other:
- Centralised generated heat flexibility: CHP + direct linked heat pumps
- Decentralised generated heat flexibility: Heat prosumers through a new developed heat substation + direct linked heat pumps will be used.
Furthermore, the project aims to investigate how heat from other processes (e.g. industry, data centers, cogeneration with cooling, excess of energy) can be recovered.
