Description

The technical-economic feasibility and environmental acceptability of a district heating and cooling system serving communities by retrofit of existing intermediate and base-load electric generating stations was studied. The study area was a densely populated area of New Jersey not being served by district heating. A range of powyr plant retrofit concepts were examined. Conceptual designs for retrofitting power plants for cogenerative operation (electricity and district heating/cooling) were developed. Innovative adaptations of existing technology were investigated that could make delivery of thermal services from central stations a reasonable investment for private capital. A market analysis was conducted to establish the extent ... continued below

Description

The technical-economic feasibility and environmental acceptability of a district heating and cooling system serving communities by retrofit of existing intermediate and base-load electric generating stations was studied. The study area was a densely populated area of New Jersey not being served by district heating. A range of powyr plant retrofit concepts were examined. Conceptual designs for retrofitting power plants for cogenerative operation (electricity and district heating/cooling) were developed. Innovative adaptations of existing technology were investigated that could make delivery of thermal services from central stations a reasonable investment for private capital. A market analysis was conducted to establish the extent and nature of the potyntial heating and cooling loads which are technically available within the proposed project areas. Potential for growth in thermal energy requirements was projected for each type of end-use consumer for periods ranging from 5 to 20 y beyond the study period. It was concluded from the phase I study that district heating/cooling has a market potential in areas with high density thermal loads; district heating offers greater near-term potential than cooling; hot water distribution systems would be best for heat transmission; the economics are marginally favorable; no legal, regulatory, nor environmental obstacles were found; and a more detailed study is justified.
