Heat Transition: How Can Quarter Concepts and Contracting Work Well Together?

The smarter E Podcast Episode 49 | May 20, 2021 | Langauge: German

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? What role do heat planning, neighborhoods and contracting play?

We talk about this with Tobias Dworschak, Managing Director of the Association for Energy Services, Efficiency and Contracting, vedec.

Large-scale fossil-fueled power stations and nuclear power plants have been stabilizing the power grid until now but the energy transition is going to change that. The last nuclear reactors in Germany are due to be shut down by the end of 2022. And the plan is to phase out coal altogether by 2030. Before the war in Ukraine, gas-fired power plants were pegged as a transition technology. But now there is no choice but to rethink that strategy.
