In times of climate change and the need to find climate-neutral solutions, municipal heat planning is a decisive step toward a sustainable heat supply. Since the end of 2022, we have been working together with the district town of Eschwege to develop a comprehensive municipal heat master plan for Eschwege and the surrounding districts. The goal is to create a concept that is based on renewable energies and ensures a reliable heat supply in the long term.
The discussions about the best way to achieve climate neutrality and the requirements of the Building Energy and Heat Planning Act have caused uncertainty among many people. This is precisely why we are actively driving forward municipal heat planning in Eschwege. Our goal here is to enable a tailored solution for Eschwege that is cost-effective, sustainable and optimal.
When changing to a heat network connection, only the boiler is replaced by a house connection station with heat exchanger. The radiators, the piping in the house and the hot water preparation are not changed and remain your property. An individual adjustment to your system is made in the course of installation.
Eschwege has various renewable energy potentials that can be used for heat supply. These include large-scale water heat pumps, large-scale heat pumps, biomass boilers, solar thermal energy, gas/hydrogen boilers, photovoltaics and geothermal energy. These sustainable energy sources offer an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels.
Our goal is to achieve a climate-neutral heat supply in Eschwege by 2045. To achieve this, we will use renewable energy sources and reduce the heat demand of buildings. With comprehensive heat management planning, we want to support sustainable urban development and reduce environmental impact.

B. Detailed planning
Heat planning is a strategic process in which municipalities develop their path to a climate-neutral heat supply. Local needs, resources and infrastructures are taken into account to increase energy efficiency and promote renewable energies. Heat planning includes inventory and potential analyses, target scenarios and transformation pathways. It supports municipalities in achieving their climate protection goals and building a sustainable infrastructure.
Thermal planning has many advantages. It improves energy efficiency and reduces greenhouse gas emissions and thus environmental pollution. It also promotes a sustainable and future-proof heat supply through the use of renewable energy and waste heat. Heat planning also supports urban development by enabling the integration of heat supply measures into urban planning and the achievement of climate protection targets.
We want to reduce the heat demand of buildings, use renewable energies and waste heat to cover the remaining demand, create a climate-neutral heat supply and integrate it into sustainable urban development.
