The German federal and state targets set us the task of supplying climate-neutral heat to existing buildings by 2050 at the latest. The goal in the future energy system is to bring heating grids and decentralized generation plants into efficient harmony. Municipal heating planning will play a central role in this structural change. But what are the concrete plans and solutions for the heat transition?
