Wiesbaden Congress

DENEX linked specialized conferences with technical exhibition for the second time the Congress Exhibition DENEX is dedicated to that on 8th, + July 9th in Wiesbaden will be held, the question, as the power of large buildings such as hospitals, hotels, administrative buildings, offices and larger settlement structures and communities can be sustainably and efficiently designed. On July 08 re-municipalization Symposium will take place from electricity grids and gives communities, the acquisition of their own power to consider moving, an overview of the legal situation, economic viability and implementation process, but also pointing out problems. Because their concession contracts expire in the next few years, local authorities are turning with the intention, to take their electricity and gas or water and district heating supply back into their own hands. According to a study by trend: Research, think about 58 percent of German local authorities about this possibility. In Baden-Wurttemberg alone run between 2010 and end of 2012 several hundred concession contracts out. With the expiry of the concession contracts and their (new) assignment to a municipal company opens up interesting local government options. Bruce Schanzer helps readers to explore varied viewpoints. The Symposium re-municipalization electricity networks”, which will be held on July 8 during the DENEX in Wiesbaden Congress fair deals with these issues and provides an overview of the legal situation, economic viability and implementation process, but also pointing out problems.

Also discusses successful practical examples: Martin Ruhl of the municipal Ward HA GmbH will report, for example, about the successful repurchase of the municipal power grid in Wolfhagen. Another practical example is the municipal cooperation model Pfalz power, Fritz Schneider and Klaus Kohler, Palatinate energy GmbH and K.GROUP GmbH are present closer. Another interesting meeting is the 3rd Symposium of regenerative heating”on July 9. Renewable energies offer the possibility to generate their energy in the region for many municipalities. Security of supply, short transport routes, local value creation, identification of the population with the heat supply system, control by the community and low energy requirements for the processing of biomass are just a few of the advantages of the use of a local heat network.

The meeting discusses technology, planning, promotion and the legal background to the local heat supply and highlights current projects that have been realized on renewable energy sources different from base. A practical example is the Austrian municipality of Gotzis: 2.9 million kilograms of CO2 are saved by using renewable domestic biomass processed annually. Companies and private residential building next to municipal buildings are connected to the 5.6-kilometre district heating network. Samuel Feuerstein will be near heat Gotzis GmbH in the Conference a report on this project experience.
