Fuel oil boilers (= the whole of the boiler body and burner to transfer the heat from combustion of fuel oil to water for space heating or sanitary hot water)

Proposal for a Decree amending the Energy Decree of 8 May 2009 as regards a prohibition on the placing or replacement of a fuel oil boiler

It is prohibited to install a fuel oil boiler in both residential and non-residential buildings for which the environmental permit for urban planning operations relating to new construction or the major energy renovation is requested from 1 January 2022.

While retaining the application of the first paragraph, fuel oil boilers in existing residential buildings and non-residential buildings may only be replaced by another fuel oil boiler from 1 January 2022 if no natural gas grid is available in the street.
Failure to comply with this obligation is enforced by means of an administrative fine.
