Comparison of Alternative Heat Supply Systems in Residential Buildings
The structure of heat supply in buildings and especially in new buildings is going to change. Due to increased climate and energy policy requirements and a generally decreasing demand of heating, alternative heat supply systems in residential buildings will become more important.
The aims of this project are as follows:
- Analysis of the technical, ecological and economical performance of alternative heating supply units in buildings with respect to a changed energy system;
- Comparison of solutions based on natural gas with solutions based on alternative energy sources;
- Comparison of local and district heating concepts for supplying single objects with heat.
Residential buildings are prioritised since they are a main factor in the distribution of natural gas at the moment. This project will be conducted in five work packages:
- Selection and specification of representative buildings;
- Specification of corresponding energy supply options;
- Dynamic analysis of the electric system until 2030 as a central and result-determining variable;
- Balancing of actual and over time energy costs and emissions;
- Comparison of the selected alternative heat supply concepts.
