SmartDorf - description

Short Description

SmartDorf is a fictional village or part of a small town with a structure typical for the rural area of Austria. It is hosting a small number of residential homes, offices and workshops. A high share of the building stock is connected to a district heating network that is supplied by a central gas-fired boiler. Generation from rooftop photovoltaic power plants covers a significant part of the annual electric energy demand. Electric boilers are installed in the district heating network with the aim to further increase the self-consumption of photovoltaic generation at a network scale.
