Description

Analysis of whether a thermal energy storage can increase the self-generated electric energy consumption at KIT Campus Nord on condition that the resulting thermal energy by generating electricity is used in the system completely.

Client

Karlsruher Institute of Technology (KIT)

Partner

  • Steinbeis Research Institute Solites
  • Karlsruher Institute of Technology

Aim

The objective of this study is to find out whether a thermal energy storage can increase the self-generated electric energy consumption at Campus Nord. The resulting thermal energy by generating electricity should be used in the system completely. Recommendation are done of target variants, which are determined by technical, economic and ecological assessments.

Implementation

During the project following assignments are worked on:

  • Investigation of the current operation of the heat supply at Campus Nord and determination of possible optimization potentials
  • Evaluation of measurement data from the heat supply of Campus Nord
  • Generating of a load-profile which contain electricity and heat consumption, that will be expected in the future
  • Analysis of the geological situation at Campus Nord
  • Identification of possible types and locations of the heat storage
  • Rough dimensioning of the seasonal heat storage  by dynamic system simulation
  • Simulation study and feasibility study

Results

Objective of this study was to find out whether a thermal energy storage can increase the self-generated electric energy consumption at Campus Nord. The resulting thermal energy by generating electricity should be used in the system completely. The developed variants are determined by technical, economic and ecological assessments. KIT owns the results.
