German oil heating industry contributes to national building refurbishment campaign

Eurofuel’s German member IWO, the Institute for Heating and Oil Technology, is partnering with the “Hauswende” initiative by the Alliance for Buildings Energy Efficiency (geea) and the German Energy Agency (dena), which started on 11 March 2014. This 2-year campaign is aimed at providing homeowners with information on the energy refurbishment of buildings and support in finding qualified energy experts. It should help raise awareness about the modernisation of heating systems through oil condensing boiler technology.

The “Hauswende” initiative receives a € 1.3 million contribution from the German Federal Government. It is supported by the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, the Ministry for the Environment, Nature Protection, Construction and Nuclear Safety, as well as industrial federations and private companies.
