Bonn (energate) - The share of renewable energies in final energy consumption for heating and cooling is just 16.5 percent, according to
Umweltbundesamt. Because the starting situations in the municipalities are different,
the heat turnaround needs data above all.

In contrast to the electricity transition, the conversion of heat generation must be decentralized. This is because the heating infrastructure as well as the social structure differ from municipality to municipality, in some cases very significantly. The city of Essen is not Starnberg in Bavaria, while Leipzig, on the other hand, has a different starting situation for the heat transition. Therefore, in order to identify the status quo of each municipality in terms of heating stock, heat consumption or ownership and income structures, comprehensive real data and, where they are lacking, statistical derivations are available - down to the level of individual streets and buildings. Such a data mix is fed from a variety of sources - starting with state statistical offices, through consumption statistics from energy providers, to census and market research data.
