The city of Rosenheim and its surrounding area have together a population of about 310.000 inhabitants. The urban district of Rosenheim, with its 60,000 inhabitants, is the regional metropolis of South Eastern Bavaria. It is a modern city, characterised by a medium-sized economy with a high quality of life. It is a very dynamic location with a wide range of products and services.


In 2012, the City Council of Rosenheim approved the creation of an integrated energy, climate and environmental protection concept named “Rosenheim 2025” for the city. Its overall goal is to reduce the energy-related emissions by 40 % by 2025, in comparison to the year 2010. To do so, the city will expand and develop its district heating network, invest in cogeneration and increase the share of renewables in its energy mix.


 Key targets

  • Reduction of energy related emissions by 40 % by 2025 in comparison to 2010
  • increasing the amount of renewable energy
  • extension of the district heating network


In the SINFONIA project, Rosenheim is especially interested in innovative cooling solutions, the coupling of heat-intensive facilities to the heating networks (e.g. sewage treatment plant) and the enhancement of the heat storage. 

Furthermore the internal development of an innovate gasification technology, which cogenerates electricity and heat out of regional wooden biomass, contributes to the goal of increasing the renewable energies.
