During development the model has been tested on a number of different case studies among the project participants.
The case studies have enabled analyses of new challenges related to energy efficiency and environmental consequences, and has demonstrated how decisions regarding one energy technology/carrier may influence other energy carriers in the same area.
- Waste fuelled CHP with municipal district heating (DH) network
- Gas fired CHP with DH network vs. electricity expansion in suburb¨
- Operation of large multi-fuel DH network
- Municipal energy plan
- Municipal DH network with biomass
- Large scale energy transport by gas pipelines, LNG ships or HVDC transmission
- Gas and DH as alternative energy services in city
- Expansion of municipal DH network with heat pumps and oil/gas boilers
- Large scale infrastructures of gas, electricity and CO2
- Gas, heat pumps and DH as alternative energy services to residential areas
- Corporate profitability vs. socio-economic optimization in DH network
- Modeling of cooling and low temperature distribution
- Multivariable models for storage and transport of biomass
- Biogas and heat pumps in residential area
- Biogas and cogeneration from slaughterhouse
- Low temperature distribution in residential area
- LCA in local energy system studies
- Energy chains for biofuel production
- Low temperature heat, gas and cooling in municipality
Many of these case studies are performed as master theses at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Many of them are documented in Norwegian only.
