OF GREENHOUSE GAS

EMISSIONS IN THE EU

Limiting global warming to 1.5°C requires ambitious cuts in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Heating is responsible for 14% of the EU’s total GHG emissions. Road transport is responsible for 25%, produced by 250 million cars, on average 11 years old. Currently, EU legislation only sets CO2 emission standards for new vehicles.

  ROLL OUT VERY EFFICIENT HEATING SYSTEMS.

  In the 2023 review of the Energy Efficiency Directive:

  - Affix energy labels to boilers already in service, to raise consumers’ awareness of their inefficiency.

  - Stimulate the upgrade of residential and commercial heating systems as a priority.

  DISCOURAGE THE USE OF HIGH CARBON HEATING FUELS

  Increase awareness of high carbon heating fuels’ CO2 emissions. Lay out a strategy to reduce their use.

  REDUCE THE CO2 EMISSIONS FROM THE EXISTING VEHICLE FLEET

  Develop a strategy addressing CO2 emissions from the existing fleet, including the promotion of retrofitting to LPG.

HOW CAN LPG HELP?

In heating, switching from an oil or coal boiler to an LPG one

can reduce emissions respectively by 25% and 50%.

Switching to a micro-CHP or heat pump

can reduce emmisions by up to 65%.

In transport

retrofitting a gasoline car to LPG can reduce its CO2 emissions by 10-20%

for a moderate cost.
