Smart Grids Modellregion Salzburg – Smart Heat Networks

The objective of the project SGMS-SmartHeatNet is to analyse and evaluate the potential of Smart Grid concepts for district heating systems in the model region of Salzburg. Dynamic network simulation and model calculations are applied to investigate intelligent operation strategies and control mechanisms for the reduction of peak loads. Reducing peak loads improves the energetic, environmental and economic efficiency of district heating systems. The utilisation of peak load boilers running on oil and gas can be reduced significantly, which in turn reduces CO2 emissions.

This project is funded in part by the Climate- and Energyfunds and implemented in the context of the programme „Neue Energien 2020“.
