The future of district heating in Hermsdorf: job and municipal utilities take part in the Walk-IN-Day at the Tridelta campus

Jun 14, 2024 | Tridelta Campus | Hermsdorf | Energie- & Wärmewende

The TRIDELTA Campus Hermsdorf is inaugurating its new office on Friday, June 14 with a walk-in day. Partners and interested parties are welcome to visit the new premises at CAMPUS CUBE in Robert-Friese-Stra&l;e 2 from 12 noon to 4 pm. Visitors can expect various hands-on activities for families, photo spots with exciting optical illusions and, of course, information on the main areas of work and research at the campus.

Jenaer Objektmanagement- und Betriebsgesellschaft, which operates the neighboring Hermsdorf combined heat and power plant and supplies Holzlandstadt with electricity and district heating, will also be on site with an information stand. Managing Director Mario Hacke and Christian Dornack, Head of Strategy at Stadtwerke Jena Netze, will provide information on the current status of district heating generation in Hermsdorf and present their plans for the bright future of district heating. Since 2020, the job has invested around 4.3 million euros in the power plant site in Keramikerstra&l;e and installed two large heat pumps, three combined heat and power plants and an intelligent control system for the plant park, among other things. Together, they form an innovative combined heat and power system that generates district heating for Hermsdorf in a particularly efficient, environmentally friendly and needs-based manner. If there is sufficient interest, the job offers the opportunity to take a look at the new systems on site.

Because the current investments are just the beginning. In its 2040 heat network strategy for Hermsdorf, the job has set out a concrete path for how it intends to further convert and expand the plant fleet at the power plant by 2040 in order to be able to generate district heating in a climate-neutral way in the future. The main energy source used will then no longer be fossil natural gas but (green) electricity. Further large heat pumps are planned, as well as additional electric boilers for peak load times, which generate the heating water for the heat supply using electricity (much like an immersion heater).
