In collaboration with the Coolproducts campaign and Öko-Institut, this EEB report addresses the scenarios for each member state if there were to be a ban on fossil heating technologies, particularly:

  • Their respective saving in gas consumption, and Russian gas import
  • The respective percentage of greenhouse gas emission target achieved
  • The respective percentage of renewable energy in heating and cooling achieved

The report observes three potential dates for phase-out: 2023, 2025, and 2029. The aggregated result shows significant savings for both gas consumption and achievements for national energy and climate plans if phase-out begins latest 2025, but insignificant impacts if delayed to 2029.
