    The desired heat turnaround focuses not only on district heating, but also on local heating. Thanks to shorter distances from generation to consumers, energy losses in the network are lower. Optimal control of combined heat and power plants can also save energy. In a pilot project with RheinEnergie AG, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM in Kaiserslautern are exploring this potential with the help of artificial intelligence (AI).
