Smart Grids, District Heating and Cooling, and Heat Pumps Integrated with Thermal Energy Storage Sessions

In the keynote presentation, Tommy Walfridson discussed the growing need to balance the electricity grid in
the EU due to increased renewable energy production. He explained how individual heat pumps could help by
offering balancing services. He also mentioned the potential for external control of heat pumps through API
solutions. A Swedish study demonstrated that individual heat pumps can contribute to balancing services.
