District heating / communal heat planning

On the 1st of January 2024 the law for heat planning and for decarbonization of heat networks (Wärmeplanungsgesetz) and therewith a mandatory heat planning has become effective. So the creation of heating plans is designated for cities (more than 100.000 inhabitants) until 30th June 2026 and for towns (less than 100.000 inhabitants) until 30th June 2028.

For supporting you optimally during the implementation of the municipal heating planning, BBSoft® enables the CAD-based planning of district heating conduits and -networks, their maintainance in a database and an editable presentation.

Further features:

  • automatic generation of nodes and conduits from 2D-/3D-polylines
  • visual assistance (display of length and angle) during creation of district heating conduits
  • an extensive node- and fitting library is available
  • welded joints, expansion cushions and fixed points can be created
  • inserting of U-arcs into dictrict heating conduits and subsequent editing is possible
  • initial and end station of flow and return of expansion cushions don't have to be identical
  • nodes will be inserted automatically in an existing conduit with adjustment and height interpolation
  • for recurring oparations you can compile individual samples
  • a cutting presentation with crossing conduits is possible (over the entire district heating section)
  • parallel branches are graphically considered
  • in the location plan the falling gradient can be interpolated between the nodes
  • in the longitudinal section additional nodes can be inserted to the section
  • flow and return and trench widths can be represented graphically in the location plan
  • turning points are represented with user-specific symbols
  • district heating conduits can be deployed in the loacation plan
  • information according to location and adjustment of the district heating elements is contained in the database
  • connection points of district heating nodes can be interchanged (the direction of nodes can be changed so)
