ENERPIPE is your partner for the supply of local and district heating
We bring warmth on the way - this motto has been with us since the company was founded. Since 2007 we have put all our energy into the implementation of heating networks. Because we all want a warm home, and in combination with the use of renewable energies such as wood or waste heat from biogas plants or power plants, the whole thing feels a little bit better.
We are providers of local heating and accompany the implementation of a heating network from the initial idea, through the planning phase with route planning and addressing the connectee, to implementation and commissioning.
Only with ENERPIPE can you get everything you need for a local or district heating network from a single source!
Our services for a heating district:
- Planning Support
- Heat interface
- Fresh water technology
- Heating house technology
- Control technology
- Pipes and connections
- Power to heat
Why district heating?
The federal government is working flat out to become less dependent on fossil fuels, and we are feeling it: energy from oil and gas is not only becoming more and more expensive, but is also being banned in the near future (new oil-fired boilers may no longer be installed from 2026).
At around 70%, heat (heating and hot water) accounts for the largest share of energy in German households. Heat is therefore the most important factor in achieving the energy transition. With the use of renewable energies, we make ourselves independent of international markets and oil and gas.
It is important to us that the regional added value is preserved. In concrete terms, this means that the heat is generated and consumed in the same place. The fuel (e.g. damaged and residual wood) also comes from the nearby region. We work with installers who are in close proximity to the heating network. As a result, jobs remain in the region and resources are conserved (e.g. due to short travel distances).
Simple but effective: water is heated in the energy center and fed to surrounding buildings via insulated pipes. In the houses, buffer storage and transfer stations ensure that the required heat reaches the heating or hot water system. Heating networks have been established in Germany for decades. The technology for this is coordinated, energy requirements are harmonized with generation and the control technology is adapted to this.
For each project, the appropriate heat generation variant must be adapted to the local conditions and resources.
Wood, waste heat from biogas plants and factories or solar thermal energy can be possible heat sources. The main thing is renewable!
Flexible positioned for the future
A heating network is designed for decades. Energy generation can be flexibly adapted to new technologies over the entire life cycle of a heating network. If, in a few years, the hydrogen or fuel cell technologies are mature and economically viable, they can, like power-to-heat solutions, be a building block for an energy supply based on renewable energies and help to advance the topic of sector coupling. These future technologies can be implemented more easily and efficiently in a central heating system than in dozens of individual houses.
Advantages for the residents
- More space in the basement:
The heat is supplied directly to the building and no longer requires its own heating system. Fuel storage and the chimney are no longer needed. This saves money and creates additional space in the basement.
Peace of mind: Independence from international markets and oil and gas.
Think about tomorrow today: Local heating meets the requirements of the federal government that energy must be generated from renewable sources. A heating network connection is a simple measure that allows you to comply with the ban on oil boilers and gas heating with manageable effort, without having to carry out major conversion work in the existing building (low-temperature system or surface heating not necessary).
- Save money: A connection to the local heating network is significantly cheaper than purchasing a new conventional heat generator that meets the minimum legal requirements, at least 65% from renewable energies.
- Funding: Connection to the heating network including environmental measures (e.g. expansion and disposal of gas/oil heating including tanks) can be funded via the BEG.
