Common challenge

sharp decrease in fossil energy use is needed to achieve the EU's climate goals. Households use 79% of energy for space and water heating; 84% of this energy is fossil-fuelled. Household CO2 emissions for heating in 2 Seas countries currently are around 90Mtonnes/yr. There is enormous potential to reduce CO2 emissions with wide-scale adoption of low carbon heating. But few structures currently use sustainable heating sources because:

  • There is a lack of awareness and knowledge among homeowners in the 2 Seas region on the different technical options and advantages of sustainable heating.
  • The initial investment costs for sustainable heating installations are high for individual homeowners (early adopters). Examples of sustainable heating in residential and community buildings are needed, alongside active engagement of home owners and communities to raise awareness, remove barriers and create facilities (e.g. financing schemes, incentives) for the transition to sustainable heating
