By using EnEffCo® since 2017 with more than 2000 meter points, a flexible operational management of utility plants could be achieved. The project was implemented as part of the BMWi PHI-Factory funding program.
As part of the Phi Factory R&D project, the Technical University of Darmstadt is developing new methods of making power plant operation more flexible and energy efficiency. ÖKOTEC assisted with the forecasting and assessment of flexibility potentials for two cogeneration plants with combined heat storage.
Solution and Implementation
ÖKOTEC developed an operational flexibility solution based on the EnEffCo® energy management application.
The solution provides for the continuous forecasting of power and heat loads as an operational management parameter.
CHP power generation is optimized based on power prices while taking efficient heat storage and use into account.
Operational flexibilities are marketed through the local utility provider.
