Viessmann: Replacing More Heating Systems Necessary to Reach Climate Targets

Viessmann Group, Allendorf/Germany, one of the leading international manufacturers of heating systems, says that 13.6 million old heating systems need to be replace by 2020 if Germany wants to reach its climate protection targets. To date only 600,000 heating systems are replaced every year, according to Viessmann.  A company spokesperson said the heating sector with its share of 38% of the total German energy consumption (electricity: 21%, transport: 28%, other sectors: 13%) would be given too little consideration in the climate protection debate.
