The primary function of the solar park is to supply power to a heat pump. This is expected to produce 40-50% of the total heat demand. That is because the COP value of heat production is almost 4. The value of the electricity produced in the solar park is also worth 4 times more. This gives Assens Fjernvarme some unique opportunities to act both environmentally and financially appropriately:
With increasing demand and high prices in the electricity market, the electricity produced from the solar park can be advantageously resold. furthermore, the heat pump can also be powered by biomass.
When the electricity price is low. The heat pump can be operated using the solar park, which is designed to halve the consumption of biomass on an annual basis.
This means not only increased competitiveness as a result of a cheaper consumer price. Although it has a much greater flexibility as well as increased access to the electricity market’s system regulation.
