“80 percent less CO₂ in the heating sector is possible”

The German natural gas industry group Zukunft-Erdgas has produced a study “Heating market 2050”, which examines the role of regenerative gases in meeting CO2 reduction targets. “The CO₂ intensive heating oil will not play any role in the heating market of the future,” the group writes in a press release. The study says that raising the share of gas used in heating to 35 percent by 2050 could reduce CO2 emissions in the building sector by 80 percent.
