In the Oberland region, 44 percent of energy are used for the heat sector – by far the largest share, along with electricity (25 percent) and transport (31 percent). And only a small part of this, namely 10 percent, comes from renewable energies. At the online-heat summit on 29.1.2021, the focus was on the challenges on the way to climate-friendly heating in the Oberland, how experts (representatives from heating engineering, chimney sweepers, forestry, and the consumer advice center) see the topic as well as effective levers for improvement, and with which activities Energiewende Oberland wants to advance the heat transition in the next two years. With over 100 participants from the Oberland and beyond, the heating summit met with a great response.

The heating matrices in Report D4.1 provide an initial overview of which heating system based on renewable (non-fossil) energy sources or district heat is most suitable for a building. The matrices presented were adapted regionally with regard to structural and environmental conditions, building standards and economic viability.
How do end-consumers, intermediaries and investors perceive renewable heating and cooling? What information sources do they use? And what barriers, challenges and needs do they view in respect to replacing inefficient systems with sustainable ones? Numerous interviews have been conducted in all partner regions. The respective Report D3.1 provides insight in the mind-sets and needs of stakeholders and forms a basis for the REPLACE campaigns.
