Abstract:The energy transition has great consequences for the electricity network managed by Coteq. The energy transition accelerates the use of sustainable technologies such as heat pumps, electrical vehicles, and photovoltaics. These sustainable technologies are expected to put great pressure on the electricity network. To prevent bottlenecks, Coteq needs to perform the necessary investments. In this research, we focused on the impact on medium to low voltage transformers due to the spatial diffusion of residential heat pumps. We simulated the growth of heat pumps in the service region of Coteq over space and time based on neighborhood characteristics and scenarios. This simulation provides Coteq with increased insight into the impact of the energy transition on the electricity network.
