    Abstract

    The benefits of using dynamic heat storage and demand side management strategies are discussed. While dynamic heat storage (DHS) is a strategy regarding the energy supply and distribution, demand side management (DSM) is a promising technique to increase the efficiency of energy supply systems focussing on energy peaks coming from the demand side. DHS, for district heating systems with electricity production (CHP), can increase the possibility for electricity production, resulting in economic savings of up to 2% per day. The optimization is carried out using the optimization toolbox of Matlab 6.5. The objective function of the optimization model are operational costs.
