Federal law and federal guideline on heat planning

The project includes support services for the preparation of a federal guideline, which is to provide detailed and practical methodological recommendations and assistance for the implementation of municipal heat planning, as well as an associated technology catalogue, which includes uniform and scientifically based techno-economic parameters to be used when applying the methods described in the federal guideline.

In addition, the project supports the federal government in drafting a federal law for municipal heat planning, especially with regard to creating an enabling regulation for the collection of the necessary data, as well as in determining the compliance effort of the legal obligations and regulations for companies, administration and citizens.
