REPLACE – Making heating and cooling for European consumers efficient, economically resilient, clean and climate-friendly
Half of Europe’s energy consumption is used for heating or cooling. However, two thirds of the heating systems installed in Europe – that is 80 million units – are inefficient.
In order to achieve the climate targets and make Europe independent of oil, coal and natural gas, changes in this sector are essential.
The aim of REPLACE is to motivate and support people in nine different countries to replace their old heating systems with more environmentally friendly alternatives. Simple renovation measures that reduce overall energy consumption are also part of the programme.
There are nine participating countries in REPLACE: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia and Spain.
