Participation in IEA DHC Annex TS3 - Hybrid Energy Networks - District heating and cooling networks in an integrated energy system context

Project Details


This project focuses on the Danish participation in the international research project "DHC Annex TS3: District heating and cooling networks in an integrated energy context".

In the transition towards the future energy system based on 100% renewable sources, the IEA DHC Annex TS3 is aiming to promote new opportunities for district heating and cooling (DHC) systems as strategic technology in the implementation of the hybrid energy networks (HEN). HENs represent a promising solution to improve the flexibility and the interconnectivity of the energy systems to manage and mitigate the imbalances of supply and demand with a high share of variable renewable energy sources.

The main activities will be focused on identifying applicable HEN technologies and synergy potentials and under what conditions these can be applied. The results from the international collaboration will be conveyed in a practical guidebook and openly accessible.

IEA DHC Annex TS3 is led by Ralf-Roman Schmidt from Austrian Institute Of Technology.
