It must be the end of oil and gas furnaces in the homes, it sounds in the new climate agreement, and according to the Danish Energy association for energy companies in Denmark, it can be done by 2030.
however, This requires that the danes are willing to take a ekstraregning now and make the hassle to replace the oil - and gas burner, of which there are around 460.000 in Denmark - approximately 80,000 oil-fired boilers and approximately 380.000 gas furnaces.
Lars Aagaard, director for Danish Energy, called the agreement a victory for energy consumers and believe that the danes are willing to get a full phase-out to succeed.
- We can hardly do it in three or five years, but in ten years I will consider that it is possible.
- The most important thing right now is that the danes, who have an oil or gas burner take a position on what they want, he says.
In the text of the agreement states that varmepakken will reduce CO2 emissions by 0.7 million tonnes in 2030.
the Guys should be replaced by ”green district heating or electric heat pumps”, says the text of the agreement. To support the transition be allocated 2,3 billion dollars.
According to Lars Aagaard, it can cost up to 100,000 dollars to get replaced, its the guy with for example a heat pump.
the Price depends however on the concrete housing, and therefore it can vary a lot. Moreover, the agreement up to support a replace of the heat supply.
on the other hand, you can look forward to savings on heating bills for many years to come, says Lars Aagaard.
Klimarådet, which advises the government in the green transition, have assessed that it is possible to phase out the guys completely towards 2030.
But it will require a forced scrapping of existing oil-fired boilers.
the Government has previously estimated that over the next four years will be able to scrap the 20,000 to 40,000 oil-fired boilers and 50,000-80,000 from gas furnaces.
- Now the Parliament provides the framework for it has become economically attractive to move away from fossil cooking functions. But it requires that the danes take the choice, says Lars Aagaard.
