Wärme in der EUREGIO: fokussieren & modernisieren

The project „Wärme in der Euregio – fokussieren und modernisieren/ Warmte in de Euregio – focusseren en moderniseren (WiEfm)“ works along the value chain of supply infrastructure by means of heat grids in towns and municipalities. This encloses the three areas of „generation“, „distribution & operations“ and „sales and distribution“. The project is divided into three phases in which the following specific activities will be implemented:
In Phase I the differences and common characteristics on the German and Dutch side with a focus on innovative and efficient distribution of heat via heat grids are worked out. Innovation potentials are determined by the comparison of available structures and the realization of excursions and workshops with KMU and other actors of the value added chain. Eight case studies will be selected (four on the German and Dutch side) at the beginning of the project to concretize the project results.
In phase II technical innovations, process innovations and governance structures move in the focus. The aim is to identify strategies and to develop tools to build and run innovative heatgrids.
Phase III concretizes the knowledge from the preceding phases and compiles for this purpose – together with the case studies – conversion timetables and strategies.
The selected case studies will be accompanied in their implementation; the project is incumbent on the task of controlling and especially the identification of barriers and the verification of the figures given in the dashboard. As a result, best practice examples are generated and success or hampering factors are derived. Thus phase III serves the consolidation and the validation of the results from the preceding phases.
