Abstract: District heating and cooling (DHC) often has large thermal storage tank, can be expected as a demand response resource. Using a highly reproducible simulation model created to verify the performance for an actual plant, we examined the feasibility and potential estimation of actual plant in the Japanese DR market, which has just begun. It was shown that DR could be realized even in an actual plant by deciding on the usage rate forecast for the next day announced by the electric power company and performing preparatory operation from the morning.
