The distribution of district heating in the Odense area is today mainly based on heat production from four production units. One of these is Blok 7 at Fynsværket, which was put into use almost 30 years ago in 1991. Within a short period of time a decision therefore has to be made regarding prolonging the life span of the plant, if Blok 7 should remain in use.
In this project, Ea Energy Analyses carried out scenario calculations for development of the district heating distribution in the Odense area for the period 2018 to 2040. Five scenarios were analysed with the electricity and district heating model Balmorel, in order to find the cheapest biomass alternative. The results from the model were then part of an economic comparison of the scenarios.
