Negative experiences:"During summer and in transient periods the power plant is operated in the condensing mode only, with an electrical gross efficiency of 37 %. That means, that from total 8,000 operating hours per year the plant will be operated in the combined-heat-and-power mode for only 2,500 hours per year. Thus, the annual fuel use efficiency is well below 50 % and the plant provides for only 2 % of district heat in Vienna, while it could deliver three times more.
In sum, this biomass plant is designed as a highly efficient power plant as regards emissions control and energy efficiency. However, due to its location this potential cannot be fully used (in Vienna, the supply of heat outweighs the demand in transient periods and during summer).
