Title: Comparison of centralized and decentralized energy supply systems
Issue Date: 1991 Konferenzbeitrag Kranvogel, Edith (Hrsg.): Closing the gaps : efficiency - inefficiency in East and West; proceedings 2nd International Conference on Energy Consulting, September 25 - 27, 1991, Graz, Austria. Vol. 1. Graz, 1991, S. 565-575
Abstract: Communal energy programs are often embedded in a conception of a decentralized energy supply system where electricity is produced by a number of smaller power plants. For a comprehensive survey the question arises whether these decentralized systems are more advantageous than centralized systems with regard to the criterions energy consumption, safety of supply, environmental compatibility and economy. In the following, after a definition of the term "decentralized", the present structure of the energy supply system in the Federal Republic of Germany is examined under the point of view whether it is more centralized or more decentralized. Then, a detailed investigation into effects of a decentralized compared to more centralized energy supply system is presented. Assuming two alternatives of supply, different energy generating plants are exemplary discussed. At last, problems concerning the organization of decentralized energy supply system which are of special interest for local and regional energy strategies are considered.
