Abstract [en]

Hungary’s share of renewable energy in 2010 was 7.9 %, and their renewable energy goal for 2020 is 14.65 %. Geothermal energy is one option that could help to achieve the goal, since Hungary has favorable bedrock, the temperature gradient is above average and thepermeability is high. Today Hungary is importing just over half of its primary energy supply. Because of political conflicts between nations Hungary wants to expand its own production of energy. One of the major investments implemented was to build the largest geothermal heating plant in central Europe, located in Miskolc. This degree theses aims is to raise the capacity factor for this heating plant. To achieve this objective, a survey of how grain dryers and absorption chillers could increase the heat load in the summer has been performed. With grain dryers that only dries wheat, the capacity factor for the geothermal heating plant in Miskolc increased by 2.6 % and by 4.4 % for the absorption chiller. Although surveys have been carried out for a specific case the idea can be implemented in other heating plants.
