Biomass heating Engelsberg

In Engelsberg, a biomass heating plant with a capacity of 1,700 kW and a district heating network with a route length of approx. 7,400 m and 180 heat transfer stations were built. In order to improve the economy and efficiency of the heating network, Fernwärme Engelsberg GmbH commissioned a systematic operational optimisation by eta Energieberatung GmbH from Pfaffenhofen a.d. Ilm at a very early stage of the project.

Customer benefits

Implementation of an optimised concept for the generation and distribution of heat from biomass; cost savings through operational optimisation


From 2012 to 2013, a biomass heating plant with a capacity of 1,700 kW (conventional peak and reserve system 2,000 kW) and a district heating network with a route length of about 7,400 m and 180 heat transfer stations were built in Engelsberg. From 2014 onwards, the biomass heating plant and the district heating network were optimised during operation by eta Energieberatung.

The systematic optimisation of operations by eta Energieberatung GmbH has brought us a very big step closer to our goal of being able to offer a sustainable, secure, regional and environmentally friendly heat supply for our Engelsberg citizens at a price that works in the market. We are pleased that we can make a functioning contribution to the energy transition in the Free State of Bavaria and in the Federal Republic of Germany.
