Acceptance of heat supply concepts in Eberswalde

Principal: Energy supply company

A significant share of primary energy consumption in Germany is due to the heat demands of households, trade, commerce and services. For this reason, the heat market plays a decisive role within the process of energy transition and decarbonisation.

As part of the project “Zwanzig20-Forum Wärmewende”, heat supply concepts for certain neighbourhoods in Eberswalde were developed. In this context, the Chair of Energy Economics analyses various heat supply concepts with regard to stakeholder acceptance. The study reveals that consumers are interested in the design of their heat supply. Reliability and economic efficiency are the most important criteria. Furthermore, regional solutions, including the regional energy supply utility, achieve a high level of acceptance. With regard to technical configuration, solar heating systems and gas boilers are the technologies with the highest level of acceptance.
