In some areas, we exceeded expectations for 2022. Especially when it comes to replacing oil and gas boilers with a greener alternative such as district heating or heat pumps. In 2022, no fewer than 847 households scrapped their gas boilers, while 108 replaced their oil boilers. The goal is to have no oil and gas boilers left by the end of 2029.
On the other hand, emissions from passenger cars have not decreased as expected, but instead increased by two percent. This is partly because people are not working from home as much as during the COVID lockdowns and are therefore driving more. But this is also because the people of Southern Denmark are not so quick to switch to electric cars. In the Sønderborg area, electric cars made up only 3 percent of the car fleet, while the national average was 4 percent. In addition, it seems that car owners don’t always scrap their petrol and diesel cars when buying an electric car.
