    Abstract : Energy poverty and lack of access to electricity is a global problem which is recognised in the sustainable development goal 7. Today 1.2 billion people live without access to electricity and most of them are situated in Sub-Saharan Africa where biomass still constitutes the main source of energy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Production optimization for district heating : Short-term planning of district heating grid in Gävle, Sweden

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik; Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Nicolas Lindgren; Karl Brogren; [2019]
    Keywords : Short-term planning; Optimization; District heating; Linear programming; Mixed integer non-linear programming; Branch and bound; Heat storage; MATLAB; TOMLAB;

    Abstract : Energy systems with a high portion of renewable energy from wind and solar power can suffer from fluctuations in production due to weak winds or cloudy weather, which may affect the electricity price. When producing heat and power in a combined heat and power plant, an additional heat storage tank can be used to store the heat surplus which is obtained when the power production is high, and the heat demand is low.
