Reference applications for renewable heat
(Referenzanwendungen für erneuerbare Wärme)
There is a high degree of freedom and flexibility in the way to integrate renewable process heat in industrial processes. Nearly in every industrial or commercial application various heat sinks can be found, which are suitable to be supplied by renewable heat, e.g. from solar thermal, heat pumps, biomass or others. But in contrast to conventional fossil fuel powered heating systems, most renewable heating technologies are more sensitive to the requirements defined by the specific demand of the industrial company. Fossil fuel-based systems benefit from their indifference to process temperatures in terms of energy efficiency, their flexibility with respect to partload as well as on-off operation, and the fuel as a (unlimited) chemical storage. In contrast, the required temperature and the temporal course of the heat demand over the year determine whether a certain regenerative heat generator is technically feasible at all or at least significantly influence parameters like efficiency or coverage rate. Additionally, feasibility and performance of renewable heating systems are also significantly influenced by the availability of heat sources (solar irradiation, ambient heat etc.) which also varies in time. To be able to compare the potential of the coverage and the performance of renewable heating systems globally, first, it is necessary to attain a profound overview of the variety of reference conditions for renewable heating systems.
