Multi-energy system (MES) operation calls for active management of flexible resources across energy sectors to improve efficiency and meet challenging environmental targets. Electric heat booster, a solution for Domestic Hot Water (DHW) preparation under Low-Temperature-District-Heating (LTDH) context, is identified as one of aforementioned flexible resources for electricity and heat sectors. This paper extends the concept of optimal load scheduling under day-ahead pricing from electricity sector only to both electricity and heat sectors. A case study constructing day-ahead energy prices to shift energy consumption to low carbon content energy is provided. Results show that 0.5 DKK/kWhel add-ons on top of electricity spot price makes electricity and heat price not comparable such that electricity price variation will have no impact on load scheduling. This result suggests aforementioned concept is not feasible with current Danish electricity taxation.
