A micro-scale solar district heating network integrated with a seasonal borehole thermal energy storage is modelled, simulated and analysed over a 5-year period. The system is devoted to satisfying the heating demand of a district consisting of 6 typical single-family houses under the climatic conditions of Naples (south of Italy). The proposed plant is investigated by considering three alternative natural gas-fuelled back-up systems (boiler and micro-cogeneration units) in order to compensate the intermittency of solar source. The performance of the district heating network are compared with those of a conventional decentralized plant in order to assess the potential energy, environmental and economic benefits.

Abstract

A micro-scale solar district heating network integrated with a seasonal borehole thermal energy storage is modelled, simulated and analysed over a 5-year period. The system is devoted to satisfying the heating demand of a district consisting of 6 typical single-family houses under the climatic conditions of Naples (south of Italy). The proposed plant is investigated by considering three alternative natural gas-fuelled back-up systems (boiler and micro-cogeneration units) in order to compensate the intermittency of solar source. The performance of the district heating network are compared with those of a conventional decentralized plant in order to assess the potential energy, environmental and economic benefits.
