Abstract
Four scenarios for the future district heating market were identified. The first scenario anticipates the use of nuclear waste heat for district heating as well as a full TPA. The second scenario predicts high taxes on garbage incineration and low taxes on waste heat as well as a customer price-regulation. The third scenario expects a high degree of incompatibility in integrated different district heating systems as well as a full TPA. The fourth scenario presumes that terrorism creates difficult conditions for district heating and that no re-regulation occurs. In each scenario strategic options for the parties involved were identified based on our reflections from the conducted research. The currently active market parties are encouraged... (More)

The fourth scenario presumes that terrorism creates difficult conditions for district heating and that no re-regulation occurs. In each scenario strategic options for the parties involved were identified based on our reflections from the conducted research. The currently active market parties are encouraged to initiate a higher degree of transparency, to reinforce the compatibility development, to join a larger integrated network, to minimise their reserve capacity and to create lock-in effects with their customers. Possible new entrants are encouraged to identify new geographic areas for building new networks as well as finding an alternative use for heating. (Less)
