Joint project: Heating Grid Navigator Software to comprehensively optimise the operation of heating systems at city and district levels


The integration of solar heating into centralised heating supply systems (local or district heating) is a promising approach to using renewable solar power. The individual components of such a system, including the solar array, short-term heat storage, CHP plant and the heating grid, create a complex field through their mutual influencing of oneanother, one in which optimal operation is not easy to attain. Grid operators thus require complex software solutions for this.
