Abstract

District heating (DH) systems produce heat centrally and distribute it via transmission and distribution pipes. Heat storage, which is required when
production and demand for heat is not in balance, are usually capital intensive investments. However, thermal building mass could be utilized for storage by implementing smart controllers. In order to investigate this potential, this paper investigates a building simulation model with a linear optimization model of the energy system.
