Thinking in a new way means for us: we rely on regenerative heating systems for district heating and we will heat with renewable energy in the future. A CO2-free energy that comes from photovoltaic plants, wind turbines and storage facilities. Waste heat and natural geothermal energy are another important component for a district heating system to generate CO2-neutral heat.
The advantage of expanding renewable heat from green energy are
Global warming and its consequences can no longer be ignored. We must significantly reduce CO2 emissions and promote heating with renewable energies!
It is particularly important for the building sector to strive for a climate-neutral heat supply. This can be achieved by greatly reducing heat demand and covering the remaining heat with renewable heating systems using green concepts in district heating.
District heating refers to the supply of heat and hot water to buildings from central systems. Heated water is led from the producer, usually a combined heat and power plant, directly to the connected buildings via insulated pipe systems. With the help of a heat exchanger, the heat is transferred to the consumer's heating network in the house transfer station, but the water from the district heating pipe is not transferred.
The starting point for the generation of green energy is often the following renewable energy generation facilities:
These are also other heat carriers such as:
All of this together provide the building blocks that we use for regenerative or CO2-neutral heating of buildings.
How we use and convert the available energy sources depends on the local conditions. Sustainable district heating networks are often possible and economically viable, for example to generate heat from "green" electricity. For this purpose, water is heated using electricity from renewable energy sources, for example, and fed into the district heating network. The heat is transferred to the connected households via heat exchangers.
We focus on
We support you in the creation of heat plans, which have been stipulated by the legislator in the Heat Planning Act for municipalities under 100,000 PE by 2028. In addition, we prepare feasibility studies and thus examine in detail the possibilities of a heating project in the respective municipality or community.
As an engineering service provider, we plan the way to reduce CO2 emissions, we advise local authorities, municipalities and municipal associations that do not have their own municipal utilities and in future we want to implement turnkey district heating projects as a general contractor. Support during the construction phase and operation of the district heating network is a goal to be pursued under suitable conditions.
Switching from fossil energy sources to district heating and thus to climate-neutral heating systems is a sensible option in view of global warming and also economically. This means a significant increase in the value of properties, a reduction in CO2 emissions and independence from international fossil fuel prices.
The most important advantages of district heating:
Sustainable, regional, citizen-owned
We work throughout Germany, but we always think regionally and want the economic power and the income from business taxes to remain in the region. That's why we encourage communities and residents to establish local cooperatives that will own and operate renewable energy and heat generation in the future.
Municipal heat supply with climate-friendly heat networks from renewable energy sources has many advantages for municipalities, the local environment and private households.
Legislation requires "municipal heat planning" from 01.01.2024. By the end of 2028, every municipality with a population of up to 10,000 is obliged to carry out corresponding procedures and draw up plans. The expected heat demand must be analyzed and the local possibilities for using renewable energy sources and waste heat must be determined. This creates planning security for the construction, conversion and expansion of heating networks.
We look forward to working with you to drive forward the energy and heating transition. The feasibility study we prepare is the basis for promoting your district heating project. Our team's experience will make your vision a success.
