    Joint Statement on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD)

    4 associations active in the liquid heating fuels industry, namely ECFD (European Confederation of Fuel Distributors), Eurofuel (European Liquid Heating Fuels Association), FuelsEurope (European Petroleum Refiners Association) and UPEI (Europe's Independent Fuel Suppliers), publish a joint letter on the revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).

    The signatories endorse the overall objective, but are greatly concerned that some of the proposals will hinder the possibility for European citizens to have access to the necessary incentives and technologies to upgrade obsolete and/or inefficient heating systems with the progressive integration of more efficient and hybrid solutions fuelled by the new generation of renewable and low-carbon liquid products. 

    In particular, we believe the proposed introduction of an explicit recommendation to Member States to ban fossil fuels based technical building systems to be too broad, as it could lead to the disproportionate and discriminatory ban of low-carbon and renewable fuel technologies. We propose in our letter a more proportionate and effective solution.

    Eurofuel Policy conference - 121022

    How to transition to low-carbon liquid fuels in a sector such as heating of off-grid homes, where alternatives are scarcely available?
    The energy transition requires to address all the energy carriers. Several studies show that liquid fuels will still be needed in the future. Yet, liquid fuels are often seen as belonging to the past, while R&D has helped developing low carbon liquid fuels. The event aims at raising awareness and explaining with concrete examples the role of liquid fuels in contributing to the decarbonisation process. The purpose will be to have an open debate about the potential of these fuels, addressing the sustainability criteria, but also the affordability and availability of those liquid fuels.

    Eurofuel Technical Workshop - 111022

    To assess the compatibility between existing boilers and different blends of products, Eurofuel and the European Heating Industry (EHI) run field tests.
    In total, about more than two hundred family homes across Europe were involved in the field tests. Due to regional requirements, different types of liquid fuels were used. 
    Some minor technical adjustments may be needed, depending on the fuel mix and boiler, but the preliminary results show that compatibility can be achieved at a minimal cost for consumers: the existing equipment is future-proof. The results are promising, all appliances are running well, and commercial scale-up is under discussion. 
    The event will be presenting the interim results.

    EU RENOVATION WAVE: Liquid heating fuels can contribute to the energy transition

    In response to the stakeholders' consultation initiated by the European Commission, 4 associations active in the heating oil industry, namely ECFD (European Confederation of Fuel Distributors), Eurofuel (European Heating Oil Association), FuelsEurope (European Petroleum Refiners Association), UPEI (Europe's independent fuel suppliers) publish their position.

    Eurofuel statement on heating oil restrictions

    In Europe some national or regional governments are looking at banning the use of heating oil or oil boilers – here is why we think this is counter-productive.

    Heating with liquid fuels

    Today a life without heating oil is unthinkable for 17% of Europeans who have no ecological and/or affordable alternative to heat their homes. How can we guarantee in times of energy transition that 20 million households – mainly in rural areas – will not lose access to affordable and secure heating?
