D. Prando, M. Renzi, A. Gasparella & M. Baratieri
The aim of this work is the energy efficiency assessment of a power plant located in Renon (Bolzano, Italy) integrated with a district heating system using a multistage modeling approach. The study investigates the energy performance of a 1 MWel ORC generator connected to a district heating network. A wood chip boiler, fed by wood waste and forest residues, provides thermal energy to an Organic Rankine Cycle with regenerative section. The electricity produced is delivered...
