1x 1200 kW electric boiler unbalance since 2009
On many nurseries, the combined heat and power (CHP) system formed the heart of the energy mix (use the generated power or supply it back to the grid, and lighting) . Additional heating was supplied by a gas boiler when the capacity of the CHP was insufficient. With the current gas prices, however, using gas heating without being able to feed power back into the grid is no longer a viable option. An electric boiler can offer the solution if you are looking for a more affordable heating method than gas.
The rapid increase in the solar and wind power-generating capacity in North West Europe will lead to a greater energy imbalance on the grid. Extreme fluctuations in electricity prices are expected in the coming years, with prices for usage changing throughout the day and over the course of the year. These fluctuations mean that electricity rates may be very expensive in one particular hour, and then cheap or even free at other times of the day.
The electricity imbalance combined with an electric boiler offers modern greenhouse horticulture an extra weapon in the battle against high energy costs. For decades, greenhouse horticulture has proven to be effective in coping with energy-related peaks and troughs. Cheap, free or even negative prices for electricity used to generate and buffer energy can substantially contribute to reducing the costs for energy.
An electric boiler can be used in situations where there is surplus electricity production (imbalance), as a back-up for a heat pump, as a stand-by (for the installed capacity), to supply additional power, or to flatten peak demands.
