Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) apparently wants to ban the installation of new oil and gas heating systems from next year. From 2024, only new heating systems "based on at least 65 percent renewable energies should be installed in Germany," according to the "Bild" newspaper (Tuesday edition) in a draft bill for the ministry led by Habeck. According to expert estimates, according to the newspaper, only the installation of district heating systems, heat pumps and biomass boilers is possible with this limit value.
In the event of damage to heating systems, there should be a transitional period of three years before the relevant requirements have to be met, according to the information in the draft reform of the Building Energy Act (GEG). The use of fossil heating systems should generally be banned after 30 years of operation. According to "Bild", the 92-page draft lists step by step when the oil and gas heating systems have to be switched off. From 2045, the use of oil and gas heating will be completely banned.
The FDP announced opposition to the plans. Your spokesman for housing policy, Daniel Föst, told the newspaper: "In the coalition, we have agreed that from 2024 new heating systems should use 65 percent renewable energies, as far as possible. Anything beyond that is not discussed and is therefore irrelevant." The coalition must not overwhelm the people. The Ministry of Economics "and Robert Habeck sometimes have fantasies that cannot be done with the FDP," said Föst.
