Municipal and national heating schedules

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Heating schedules and heating assessments in the framework of the federal government Climate Protection Initiative motivate agents to carry out heat-engineering improvement measures in the buildings sector. The 40,000 heating assessments and accompanying information campaigns applied for from co2online could allow the avoidance of 160,000 tonnes of CO2 per year (4 tonnes per expert report), or 3.2 million tonnes based on the lifetime of the components, and could generate additional sales of €860m and 12,000 man-years employment in the construction trade. The avoidance costs amount to about €1.50 per tonne of CO2. Between 2008 and 2010 45 municipalheating schedules with comparison charts for heating energy consumption and heating costs were drawn up incooperation with municipal agents for each municipality and individual year, as was an annual nationwide heatingschedule for smaller municipalities and 40,000 written heating schedules for tenants and owners. Regularproject monitoring and an overall evaluation were similarly carried out.
