German term or phrase: Wärmeabsatz
heating and power provider

heating sales
Explanation:
Your mention of a provider leads me to think that this has nothing to do with dissipation of heat, but with the sale of heating. "turnover" might be another term for sales.

Powxer companies often produce steam, which ius sold to surrounding industrial enterprises or homes for heating.

heat dispersal


Explanation:
"Heating sales" doesn't ring true to me. I don't think I've ever heard the term "sales" used like that in connection with a utility. If you want to say that the heat is taken away, I think the word "dispersal" does that.
