A heating strategy for the federal state of Berlin Boosting the heat transition

Berlin has set itself the goal of reducing its CO2 emissions to a climate-neutral level by 2050 at the latest. At 8.4 million tons out of a total of 18.1 million tons, the heating sector currently accounts for almost half of CO2 emissions in Berlin. Important levers for reducing CO2 emissions include improving building energy efficiency and decarbonizing the heat supply. As a federal state, Berlin has room for maneuver to introduce measures to control and shape the heat supply. In order to take advantage of this and to make Berlin's heat transition efficient and socially acceptable, a long-term strategy is needed that also takes into account the framework conditions of the EU and the german federal government. The heating strategy for Berlin provides a set of instruments with which the federal state Berlin is to achieve climate neutrality in the heating sector.
