Abstract in different language: The heating sector accounts for about 56% of the total final energy consumption in the Czech Republic. District Heating Systems (DHSs) supply nearly 40% of the residential heating demand where the heat sources are mainly coal-based heat-only or CHP plants, causing significant emissions of CO2. For limiting CO2 emissions, the termination of coal combusting in the Czech Republic is expected to be in 2038. Consequently, the energy policymakers and the companies are intensively looking for alternatives to fossil fuel-based plants for serving the heating needs. The other options are categorized into electric-based and non-electric-based DHSs, where different kinds of primary energy sources contribute to electricity generation or to only-heat generation. In both approaches, nuclear energy can be one of the primary energy sources. On the other side, a nuclear heat-only concept, namely TEPLATOR, is under development to be a carbon-free solution for the heating sector. In this study TEPLATOR concept is introduced, the heating sector and the available energy sources in the Czech Republic are discussed. Moreover, the advantages and disadvantages of the TEPLATOR heating concept compared with the other alternative options such as coal, natural gas, biomass, and electric- based heating technologies, are presented. Carbon emissions reduction, lower heat generation cost, economizing the expansion of DHSs in the lower heat demand density areas are some of the important advantages evaluated in this study. Finally, the benefits of this approach are formulated and calculated for a typical case study in the Czech Republic, which confirms the superiority of this nuclear heat-only concept in district heating applications.
