EU energy consumption for heating is a significant share of carbon emissions in the unit.

Heating is responsible for almost half (40%) of the EU’s total energy consumption, and a large share of the bloc’s carbon emissions. Yet, politicians are reluctant to confront the issue head-on.

Achieving climate neutrality by 2050 requires decarbonising the whole economy, including the energy-hungry heating sector, says Finland’s Riku Huttunen. And that will involve cooperation at all levels of government, including local and EU authorities, he argues.
