Recently the first smart network at Trias Westland went live, making it possible to trade geothermal energy between participating customers. By combining advanced web applications with real-time measurement & control techniques in the Trias Westland heat network, Anexo has delivered a working smart network.
Immediately after completion of the trade functionalities, the first participants already found each other and the heat was delivered to the right place by the control system. In addition to this smart heat network, Anexo had already created similar smart networks for gas and electricity.
What is E-Web Geo?
With E-Web Geo, it becomes possible to optimize a geothermal heat source by trading geothermal heat between the connected parties. The heat can be exchanged with each other. In this way, the supply and demand can be aligned and prevented that too much heat disappears back into the source or that there is a shortage.
E-Web Geo offers an online trading platform, with which the customer can sell heat (to a participant) when it’s not needed and can buy it (from the source or a participant) in case more is needed.
This optimization of energy management per participant means a better heat distribution for the source holder and an optimization of the sustainable production of heat. And with that, also optimized subsidy income.
The approximately 25 affiliated participants receive more heat for the same price or the same heat for a lower price, says Anexo. E-Web Geo facilitates the source holder so that the traded heat can be properly paid for.
