Energy flexibility in Buildings

Installations for waterborne heating have been used in both commercial buildings and residences for many years. These installations provide flexibility when choosing energy source and opportunities to shift energy use from day to night.

Because of constantly stricter regulations regarding energy efficiency, modern buildings require less and less energy supply in the form of heat. One of the future challenges is effective operation of heating installations with low temperatures and small quantities of water.

We work within the following field:
At SINTEF, we research how to design and operate heating systems in the most efficient way. Both for the building and for the connected system, such as power grids and district heating. Reducing power peaks and moving heat consumption to perids with lower prices is profitable for all parties.

Typical projects include:
Research and development projects where we analyse the potential for better management of heating systems in buildings.
