Shift to fossil fuel free products
Every quarter, besides the regular chapters about installation characteristics and turnover and order books, a theme will be discussed. The theme of the European Mechanical Installation Monitor Q2 2018 is ‘Shift to fossil fuel free products’.
Nowadays, many European governments are thinking about significantly diminishing the usage of gas and other fossil fuels, or even to become gas free. This will mean that the existing devices used for hot water generation and heating will probably need to be replaced.
Electrification of the heating market means that more products such as heat pumps for example will be used in the future. This report will give insight into trends and their consequences for installers and the products/ energy sources that will be used in the future in the different countries.
The following topics will be discussed in the report:
- Current situation
- Future developments
- Training & Education
At first, a summary will be given of the most important findings regarding the shift to fossil fuel free products. All the results will be presented on the country fact sheets. In order to create better insights and in favour of the readability, the tables are sorted by the highest percentage per country.
