Description: Die Stadtwerke Judenburg errichten ein Wärmeverteilnetz mit einer Anschlussleistung von 14 MW im Endausbau. Die Wärme kommt über eine 18 km lange Infrastrukturleitung aus der Zellstofffabrik Pöls, wo sie als Biomasse-Abwärme entsteht. Die Idee eines Fernwärmenetzes für die Judenburger Innenstadt entstand bei der Planung einer Biomasseheizung für das Altenheim. Weil es in den Nachbargemeinden Fohnsdorf und Zeltweg bereits Fernwärmenetze gab, wurde die lange angedachte Nutzung der Abwärme aus der Zellstofffabrik Pöls endlich realisierbar. Alle Gemeindewohnhäuser und alle vormals mit Gas beheizten Öffentlichen Gebäude wurden bereits angeschlossen. Das Gesamtprojekt wurde 2015 mit dem österreichischen Klimaschutzpreis ausgezeichnet. Die Leitung soll demnächst bis nach Knittelfeld verlängert werden.
Financing sources: Local Authority’s own resources, National Funds & Programmes, EU Funds & Programmes, Other
