In this study, for the first time, options and concepts will be examined which enable the area-wide replacement of oil heatings without putting additional strains (cost, work efforts) on the customers. Finally, irrespective of possible political motivated avoidance of newly installed oil heatings, the promise of the bioenergy sector will be kept sustainably in the way that for each oil heating that needs to be closed down or replaced a functioning and for the user acceptable solution without oil is available.
The aim of the overall project is to identify and demonstrate for preferably all use cases of oil heating systems (single family house, two family houses, small and medium sized multi-family houses, industrial and commercial heating) an alternative primarily based on biomass, which overcomes the existing obstacles so that new installations of oil heatings will soon lose their justification. Furthermore, it is also important to identify the political needs for actions that, from a scientific point of view, can accelerate effectively the transition from oil-fired to biomass solutions.
