“Climate Alliance for Urban Development” wants to turn the corner in terms of heat supply

Therefore, the three partners want to support cities and municipalities with corresponding projects. One focus is the “heat turnaround,” said Beermann. “With this challenge of converting the heat supply to renewable energies and making the buildings more efficient, we have to position ourselves broadly and bundle all available resources,” he emphasized. “We want to launch model projects together and, in addition, activate as many cities in the country as possible.”

Take a look at the entire residential area

For a successful “heat turnaround”, the view from the individual building must be directed to the entire residential area, said the chairman of the VKU regional group, Harald Jahnke. Because the potential for the use of renewable heat is limited in individual buildings. This must be made accessible to the entire district via heating networks. “Our goal: an innovative and cost-efficient supply of climate-friendly heat.”

To this end, the alliance wants, among other things, to launch a state competition to plan CO2-neutral neighborhoods and to reward companies with particularly climate-friendly goals, for example in reducing CO2 emissions in their housing stock. In addition, the cities and municipalities are to be supported in recording their greenhouse gas emissions and in monitoring climate protection measures. (dpa / amo)
