Abstract District heating system with power generation is integrated in electricity system since combined heat and power (CHP) plants are used for heat supply. Nowadays the changes happen in electricity system and conventional CHP plant operation. They are caused by wide integration of renewable energy sources (RES) in energy production process, feed-in tariffs for RES, the implementation of market mechanisms and the incremented requirement in energy efficiency and flexibility of power plants. This creates new opportunities and conditions for district heating (DH) and power system cooperation though the use of DH flexible technologies, i.e. power-to-heat (P2H) technologies (electric boilers (EB) and heat pumps). The use of P2H technologies is limited and they are not costs-efficient due to electricity tariff formed components. Two Targets of EB use at power plant are evaluated, omitting these components, to shows the usefulness and significant of these technology for conventional generation.
