Abstract The project aims to improve the understanding of the opportunity for and implications of moving to more integrated multi vector energy networks in the future. Future energy systems could use infrastructure very differently to how they are employed today. Several individual energy vectors - electricity, gas and hydrogen - are capable of delivering multiple services and there are other services that can be met or delivered by more than one vector or network.

This document is submitted as Deliverable 2.1 under the ETI’s Multi-vector Integration Project

The material is adapted from the presentation provided to the project steering group at the WP2 Case Study definitions workshop held in London on August 2nd 2016

The main objectives of this workshop were to:
  • For each case, agree the system configurations of multi-vector (MV) and single-vector (SV) instances
  • Discuss the degrees of freedom available in each case that can be used to optimise the MV and SV configurations
  • Agree the expected outputs from the modelling that will be used to calculate the multi-vector case benefit
  • Discuss the inputs required for each case and for the “global scenarios” and the data sources tobe used
  • Agree the exogenous parameters of interest for each MV solution model
The shortlist was: -
  1. Domestic scale heat pumps and peak gas boilers.
  2. Gas CHP and Heat Pumps supplying district heating and individual building heating loads.
  3. PHEV switching fuel demand from electricity to petrol or diesel.
  4. RES to H2/RES to CH4
  5. RES to DH and Distributed Smart Heating (“virtual” DH networks)
  6. Anaerobic Digestion/Gasification to CHP or grid injection
