Besides the District Heating RheinEnergie AG is promoting local area heat supply solutions in the city. In the 80 and 90 the heat production was gas based only. In the last years RheinEnergie extended the sources for the heat production trying to use environmental and sustainable sources. Up to 2013 several technical facilities of this type were brought into service:

  • 9 bio-methane projects (6,000 kW heat, 80 GWh bio-methane),
  • 10 geothermal heating (heating power between 8-70 kW)
  • 4 wood pellet projects (100 – 850 kW; 600 t p.a.)
  • ​6 thermo solar heating systems (10 – 120 kW; collector surface 13 – 155 m2)
