Potential of electrical building heating as thermal energy storage in Sweden

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this Master thesis is to investigate the potential of using electricity based building heating as thermal energy storage in Sweden and its applications. Building data and statistics along with literature were the basis for data collection and processing. The work was then carried out by selecting a thermal energy storage model to represent different building types that are equipped with electricity based heating systems. This aggregate thermal energy storage model was applied to the Swedish building stock, historical weather data and typical thermal comfort zones. The power and energy capacity of the thermal energy storage were studied and the model was used to evaluate Demand Response (DR) both as Price Based DR and Emergency DR. This thesis gives an approximation of the potential of both power and energy capacity which has not been clearly quantified in previous studies for thermal energy storage in buildings of Sweden. The thesis was carried out for the Department of Energy Technology (EGI) at the Division of Electric Power and Energy Systems (EPE) in collaboration with SWECO as part of the North European Energy Perspectives Project (NEPP).

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta examensarbete på Mastersnivå är att utreda potentialen av att använda värmesystem drivna av elektricitet i svenska byggnader som lagring av termisk energi och möjliga tillämpningar. Datainsamlingen och behandlingen baserades på byggnadsdata och statistik tillsammans med lämplig litteratur. Arbetet utfördes sedan genom att välja en modell för lagring av termisk energi för att representera olika byggnadstyper som har värmesystem drivna av elektricitet installerade. Den samlade termiska energilagringsmodellen tillämpades för det svenska byggnadsbeståndet med historiska väderdata och termiska komfortzoner. Effekten och energikapaciteten från den termiska energilagringen studerades och modellen användes sedan för att utvärdera Demand Response (DR) både baserat på elpris och vid nödfall. Examensarbetet uppskattar potentialen av både effekten och energikapaciteten vilket i tidigare studier av lagring av termisk energi i svenska byggnader ej kvantifierats tydligt. Detta examensarbete har utförts för institutionen för energiteknik (EGI) vid institutionen för elkraftteknik (EPE) i samarbete med SWECO inom ramen för North European Energy Perspectives Project (NEPP).
