Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Currently, many activities and efforts are taking placed in different municipalities in Denmark in order to contribute to the national target,to phase out fossil fuel in the heat supply by 2030 and in the entire energy system in Denmark by 2050. However energy transition is a complex process and involved many section and include many inter relations. Any form of changes in one part can effects others which is one the biggest challege in energy transition and including these effects requires to develop and apply more intellegent tools and measures. Energyplanner web application have been deveolped parly in this study and was applied for calculation and data production heat supply in Slaglese in futur. work energyplanner web application have been developed based on Backcasting method and energy balnce concept and system thinkig. Three different futures for heat supply in Slaglese have been designed by applying energyplanner web application. The application will make it possible to make desirable changes in an given energy system and then it trace and calculate some of the effects and visualised them in form of Sankey diagrams with is simple and undrestandable for different people with different backgrounds. In and in the paper , the discription of the web application and how it work is presented. The intention behinde the development of this application have been to provide the tool to deal with complex issues due to the energy transition in a more intelligent way. Furthermore, enhance participation of different stakeholders and actors, through the different stages of energy transition, energy planning and energy policie development and implemetations. This project have been also a great opportunity for furthur development of energyplanner web application, which still in the development phase. Applying the application in this project to process the data and make some of the calculation have been also very helpful for identifying existing bugs and defects in the web application which will be used for improvement of later versions.
