Sustainable Transition from Fossil-Based to Renewable Energy-Based Heating Systems in South-Savo Region of Finland
KC, R., Föhr, J., Ranta, T.
To achieve the carbon neutrality by 2035, Finland must eliminate oil-based heating systems which contribute about 1.2 million tons of CO2eq annually. In this study, we asked the owners about themselves as well as oil heating system such as its current situation, age, and the annual oil consumption. In addition, we asked about their willingness to change to more environmentally friendly source of energy, interest to investment, and the willingness to utilize the subsidies available. The results show that majority of respondents are interested to change their oil heating system and their preferences are heat pumps; air-water and geothermal heat pumps. Results also show that there seems to be correlation between willingness to change the heating system and the age and educational background of the respondents.
