Investment – Expansion – Modernization
The district heating sector in Germany is investing in further expansion and modernization through engaged cities, and Stadtwerke is supplemented by earmarked funds from both federal and regional levels. The district heating has found its place as an energy-efficient heat source supporting Germany’s target of climate neutrality by 2050.

DREWAG – Dynamo of Dresden’s Energiewende
DREWAG – Stadtwerke Dresden GmbH is one of Germany’s larger public utilities. It provides power, heating, gas and water for Dresden in Sachsen. Today, the company is transforming towards more efficiency and more renewable energy sources for heating and therefore plays a role in Sachsen’s and Germany’s heating transition – “Wärmewende”.

Denmark is Engaged
