Ordinance of the Municipal Council of the City of Vienna laying down an Energy Spatial Plan for the 3rd Municipal District
With the amendment to the Vienna Building Code [Bauordnung für Wien] at the end of 2018 (Provincial Law Gazette No 69/2018) the energy spatial plans were introduced as a tool enabling a targeted, sustainable control of the use of energy sources to supply space heating and hot water in new buildings.
The regulation is an Ordinance under the Vienna Building Code, and is enforced together with other building legislation. It is enacted separately for each municipal district.
It stipulates that where district heating is available, either this or another highly efficient alternative system in accordance with Article 118(3) of the Vienna Building Code is to be used. This means that natural gas is no longer permitted for space heating or hot water in new buildings located in those areas.
