    Heating with liquid fuels

    Today a life without heating oil is unthinkable for 17% of Europeans who have no ecological and/or affordable alternative to heat their homes. How can we guarantee in times of energy transition that 20 million households – mainly in rural areas – will not lose access to affordable and secure heating?

    Climate change regulations: Brexit or Not Brexit? Views from the UK oil heating sector

    By Paul Rose, CEO of OFTEC

    We all are used to energy and climate change regulations being decided at EU level. Eurofuel and the oil heating industry across Europe worked hard to ensure that the Eco-design (ERPD) directive did not effectively prohibit efficient oil heating systems.  For the UK and Ireland, the proposed low NOx levels in the directive were a very real threat.
