An analysis on the german heat market with focus on natural gas as an energy source
On behalf of the BDEW (German Association of Energy and Water Industries), prolytics market research GmbH carried out a study of the German heat market structure, covering buildings, heating systems and energy sources. Based on this, valid statements can be made regarding the heating systems and energy sources used in buildings as well as the age of the appliances installed. From a basis of around 18.9 million residential buildings with 40.6 million apartments, the sample (n = 5,653) was selected so as to achieve the greatest possible regional coverage. Data and results are representative of 98 per cent of the entire building stock in Germany.
