Large heat storages in the connection of combined heat and power plants can be utilized to compensate the above mentioned different time variations in heat and power demands. The paper presents an optimization and simulation model by which the cost-benefit analysis of large heat storages can be carried out. The model simulates the operation of the storage as well as total production costs of the local energy system (including possibly several combined and/or separate production units). The model is applied to three Finnish local energy systems. The results are discussed in the paper.
