This is what we are doing for clients:

At the very first moment there is your idea of a local- or district heating supply or near-surface geothermal energy. A community is looking for ways to place their heat supply on an environmentally-friendly and self-sufficiently basis. The owner of a biogas plant wants to use the heat produced through electricity generation ecologically meaningful and profitable. Families want to connect their houses to an existing heating network with the aid of a heat pump. Whether it is a major project or a small one, whether you need a comprehensive range of service or only material: ENERPIPE is helping you to realize the potential of your planning and to exploit the full potential. We take our clients by the hand and guide them through each step – cooperative, committed and competent.

We offer:

  • Examination of the idea and framework conditions
  • Pre-planning
  • Dimensioning proposals
  • Information of all participants
  • Statement of financing models
  • Consulting in government aid
  • Accompanying planning
  • Selection of appropriate products
  • Tendering
  • Coordination of the executing companies

Frequently asked questions:

How is a local- or district heating system working?

Some buildings are not supplied via own plants with heat for hot water and heating, but they get their heat as local- or district heating from a close or far heat generator. That can be different sources of energy: a biogas plant, wood chip heating or gas-, fuel- and combined heat and power plant.

Mostly the heat is transported by hot water, which is passed through an underground pipeline to the consumer. The heat is transferred in a heat interface unit which has a heat exchanger (for example the heat circuit of the central heating in the building) and the cooled water returns in a circuit to the heat source. The heat interface unit can be equipped with a heat meter for exact billing purposes. As the central heating station usually supplies multiple consumers, we speak about local- and district heating networks. Therefore the number of potential users is basically unlimited

For whom is this kind of heat supply suitable?

Thanks to the latest technology, which ensures tailored solutions for all possible framework conditions and needs, the heat supply via local- and district heating network or near-surface geothermal energy is suitable for each one, who wants to have an intelligent, ecological and sustainable heat supply, independent from large energy companies, whether alone or in association with neighbours or the whole community, or whether in rural areas or urban spaces.

What running costs are to be expected?

It is impossible to give a general answer to this question. The running costs are always dependent on the kind of energy supply (biogas plant, wood chip heating or gas-, fuel- and combined heat and power plant) and on the number of consumers, their distance to them and on the thermal density.

Is such a heating network actually more environmentally-friendly?

The heating with a local- or district heating network is compared with conventional heating methods much significantly. At a thermal source, based on biomass, the CO² emission is exactly the same value of the biomass production. It is therefore a CO²-neutral production. And also thermal sources, which are based on fossil fuels, save the environment, as the heat which occurs at the same time is generally discharged to the atmosphere without being used.

Is it possible, that the heat supply breaks down?

No, a perfect planning also includes solid back-up systems. These start up always in an emergency case.
