Heating oil prices in Germany 2000-2020

Households in Germany paid an average of 734 euros per 1,000 liters of heating oil. Between 2000 and 2020, heating oil prices in Germany fluctuated, peaking at 938.7 euros per thousand liters in 2012.

Residential heating in Germany

There are approximately 40 million households in Germany, with several heat sources available. As of 2019, a quarter of homes in Germany were supplied with heat through oil. Although many of Germany’s homes are heated by oil, these systems can be decades old and are a major source of residential CO2 emissions. As a result, the German government has outlined plans to ban oil-fired heating systems by 2026. Natural gas is the most common household heat source in Germany, providing heat to half of Germany’s homes. Most of the energy consumed in residential buildings in Germany is from space heating, followed by water heating.

Heating in new homes in Germany

Due to the move away from oil heating in new homes, modern technologies are now used to heat homes. In 2019, 31 percent of new homes in Germany were heated by electric heat pumps. The number of heat pumps in operation in Germany has been increasing steadily in recent years, and totaled 1.16 million in 2019. This was an increase of more than half a million when compared to 2013.
