In many district heating systems, there are ongoing collaborations between industries and local district heating companies. Several larger-scale sources are already connected to the district heating grids but there are also small-scale sources that can be utilized.
To connect and utilize surplus heat from a variety of different smaller suppliers and prosumers, simple and standardized processes are required. In the report, existing standardized offers for small-scale heat deliveries to Swedish district heating grids are described.
In addition, the economic potential of two different types of prosumers, a data center and a grocery store, in six typical district heating networks have been calculated by simulations in the project.
