Data procurement for municipal heat planning

Smaller municipalities must also submit their heat planning by June 2028 at the latest. This can only work if the database is comprehensive and reliable. The following play an important role here location twinsi.e. digital images of the individual towns and municipalities.


It is to be expected that ecosystems will form around the individual municipalities and municipal utilities with the primary aim of creating a reliable database for the heating transition . The most important local data, such as consumption, is already held by the municipal utilities. However, relevant basic data such as building characteristics, socio-demographic data or cadastral data can usually be obtained more easily and quickly from an external service provider. Nexiga is one of the relevant sources of this database.

Internal data procurement processes often cause higher costs than purchasing the necessary dataexternally. In addition, heat planning often has to be created for a larger supply area for which no real data is yet available internally, meaning that external suppliers have to step in.


Experience from other municipal heat transition projects can also speed up the process. This means that municipalities do not have to reinvent the wheel in their planning and benefit from the experiences and approaches that others have already made.
