On the German-French border in the region of Strasbourg-Kehl, a showcase project for cross-border cooperation in the municipal heat transition is emerging. In the future, 7,000 households on both sides of the Rhine will be supplied with waste heat from the local steel mill. Due to its transnational nature, the project faces several challenges. Nevertheless, the high level of commitment of all partners and the active support of governmental institutions combined with financial support from French (ADEME), German (BAFA), and European (INTERREG) funding agencies have made the project possible.
