A feasibility study commissioned by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector of the state of Baden-Württemberg has shown it would be possible to use waste heat from a steel mill in the city of Kehl (Germany) to supply 4500 households in the city of Strasbourg (France). 45 GWh per year could be transported by pipeline from Germany through the Rhine to France.
Officials met in February to discuss the implementation of the ambitious project and agreed that it should be pursued further. Further meetings were planned to discuss the financing, implementation and future operation of the cross-border heat network.
