Funding programme for "Heat Network systems 4.0"

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Since July 2017, the Federal Government has been funding heat network operators with the funding programme "Model Project Heat Network Systems 4.0" with the aim of either constructing modern low-temperature heat networks with a high proportion of renewable energies and waste heat (at least 50 %; "4th Generation Heat Networks") or transforming their existing heat networks into such modern, low-CO2 networks. The funding programme not only supports individual technologies and components, but the entire heat system. Funding will be provided for the costs of feasibility studies that examine the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of the planned 4.0 heat network system, as well as for the investment costs for the realisation of the heat networks.
