What is cold local heat?

At first glance, it sounds strange when cold local heating is to take over the heat supply. Is that a contradiction? No, cold heat really does exist. It is a heat supply with relatively low temperatures. Compared to conventional heat networks, these are almost cold - hence the name. This article shows exactly what cold local heating means, where its advantages lie and what subsidies are available.…
