Nahwärmenetze optimieren Schloss Lauterbach - Energieberatung München

Woodchip heating system at Castle Lauterbach

For the heat supply in the castle of Lauterbach, which has been owned by the von Hundt family since the 15th century, eta Energieberatung was commissioned a few years ago to plan a wood chip heating system and connected local heating network. The old oil heating system was replaced by a wood chip heating system, which was also used to supply a neighbouring house with heat.
The now outdated wood chip heating system has now been replaced by a new model. For this measure the appropriate subsidies were researched and applied for.

Terms of reference

The Hundt family intended to replace the existing wood chip boiler with a new one with a capacity of 200 kW. For this measure subsidies should be applied for (BioKlima, BAFA/KfW). The client was also supported as requested in the preparation of the application documents (project description, filling out application forms, etc.).
