Study on heating and energy in the housing sector


When it comes to heating, there is “enormous potential” for cooperation between the housing sector and the energy industry, according to a new study commissioned by the German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW). The results show that heating systems in about half of leased apartments owned by professional housing companies were 20 years or older. About half of all German apartments were heated with natural gas. The study aimed at gathering in-depth information on the heating market in Germany’s housing sector. BDEW conducted expert interviews and surveyed 188 landlords and housing enterprises.
