Using QFD to Ensure a Holistic Integration of Renewable Energies 1999-01-2621
A new systematic approach to ensure a holistic integration of renewable energies in local energy supply based on the QFD (Quality function deployment) method has been developed. With this methodology it is possible to include the different aspects and needs of all parties who are involved in energy planing at a very early stage. This helps to ensure successful installations.
Also a time dynamic tracking of the changes in technical, economical and social conditions is possible this allows predictions - based on experience- of the acceptance of RE systems.
In order to verify the method, data is collected by analysing a number of RE implementation projects in different European countries from the last 10 years. Data from ongoing studies is examined and included in the studies to ensure time tracking.
Bottlenecks and problems which are identified by this method are compared to those identified by the field survey.
As result probabilities of site realisation and successful integration of renewable energies are obtained.
