There are several ways of converting resources into electricity. In the calculator, we have made the distinction between renewable et non renewable resources. It has to be mentioned, that cogeneration that is the combined production of heat and electricity is considered in our analysis as driven by the heat demand and will therefore appear in the heating and cogeneration part.
* Electricity production from Non renewable resources
When using fossil fuel, it is possible to reduce the CO2 emissions by CO2 capture and storage
* Electricity production from Renewable resources
The availability of the renewable energy resources mainly depends on the seasons since there is less sun in the winter period. It is therefore necessary to propose Seasonal storage solutions in order to store the excess of electricity of the summer and make it available in the winter period.
