Due to the consistent application of renewable sources in all sectors, a cross-sector planning of especially local available energy sources is an economic and organizational need. A current example of the challenges of sector coupling in the context of the turnaround in energy policy are logistic centres. In the section of energy-heat coupling, offices as well as residential buildings, vehicle washing facilities and cold stores are the main energy consumers. Energy-traffic coupling includes, apart from the electric mobility needs of employees, especially the huge energy needs of the stationary cooling load traffic as well as the energy supply of the driver’s cabin.
The aim of the project is a carbon reduction of the stationary cooling load traffic by using flexibility synergies with the energy supply system of the logistic centre.
