Abstract [en]

Wuxi Sino-Swedish Eco-City, a pilot city region with an area of 2.4 km2, is a demonstration project for innovation in energy technology and integrated smart city solutions in China. After the 1st phase of the project, general outlines of the city’s energy system were drawn and applicable technologies are provided. However, no work has been performed on building electricity load projection and load analysis. This thesis will therefore firstly focus on establishing the building electricity load projection model, using simulation software STELLA. Then the model is scaled up for the whole city region. The simulation results show that there is foreseen to be electricity peak in summer and winter, due to the cooling and heating demand. Based on simulation results, an electricity DSM (demand side management) strategy should be implemented in order to balance the load. Peak load shifting strategy is thus chosen to be investigated. Two technology options (ice-storage system and thermal storage system), which could be implemented to balance the electricity peak, is analyzed by scenarios. Also, commercial feasibility of implementing such technologies is discussed.
